Saturday 11th August - Simon Baynes and Andrew Lownie (my literary agent) were at university together. This prompted an invitation to an intimate book signing event which took place in a room above the bookshop where 15 people "crammed" in to here my stories and have their books signed. Although small in number, the gathered audience were extremely enthusiastic and seemingly thoroughly enjoyed an hour and a quarter of fire service stories and the story of how my book came about.
