So this entry is belated, and I am ashamed of it.

Last week on Wednesday I was lucky enough to meet my agent, the fantastic and excellent Lucienne Diver. She was in London for a book industry event (the London Book Fair), and I was able to get down from Oop North to hang out with her. We went shopping in various London bead shops and in Liberty’s, plus strolled through Covent Garden and chunks of Soho, and had supper at this very classy and excellent Chinese restaurant in Chinatown, the Plum Garden. Unfortunately I had to make a run for my train and wasn’t able to stay hanging out as long as I would have liked to, but it was a totally splendid day.

(Please pardon the overuse of superlatives. Some days are worth it.)
