Last May I attended the American Book Exposition in LA to sign copies of Kéthani and proof copies of Necropath. The highlight of the three days was a spectacular toucan attack on friend and writer Nathan Long. A stall across the aisle had a ‘tame’ toucan on hand to promote their pet care manuals, and for some reason the avian menace took a dislike to Nathan, flew across and clawed his face. It’s a hard life, being a writer.

The rest of the Expo passed without incident. Hi to all the fans and readers I met there.

Now, back to the reality of grey English summer days, and work on the next novel.
