The problem is though that I have met people I would want to see so much more of - but the fact that they live thousands of miles away , on the other side of the world, has meant that I never see anything like enough of them. One of those friends is today's guest - the lovely Trish Morey.
I met Trish at her very first RWA National conference in New York when she had just had her very first book accepted. I remember being introduced to her during the literacy signing and then later enjoying her company at a fabulous author dinner where the fact that several glasses of red wine were spilled over the immaculate white linen table cloths (not by either Trish or myself, I hasten to add!) was just another moment that made our first meeting memorable. Since then we've shared as much time as we can at RWA conferences - Romance Writers of Australia / RW New Zealand conferences and of course AMBA. It's never enough. Email helps but there's nothing to compare with chatting face to face.
But until the next time we meet, I'll make do with enjoying seeing Trish here on my blog.
Welcome Trish -
First off, I have to say how happy I am for Kate and Steve - 40 years! - how awesome is that? So super congratulations to them both.
