My close writing friend Avril Joy and I had a great Sunday in Durham celebrating the coincidence of the launch of our very different books about our writing process.
We meet regularly to talk and to write together and encourage each other. Avril actually writes beautifully about this process in her book.
But today was to be a pure celebration. And where better to celebrate that in the beautiful Durham City? This is an old haunt – and an old inspiration - of mine .and features in several of my novels. A great place to celebrate.
The day was a bit damp but that only added a certain sheen to the lovely old streets and to our celebration.
We started in the Saddler Café with strawberry tarts and coffee.
