US TRIP BEGINS!

Uncategorized Add comments

Yeah….we’re here!  Arrived in Boston Massachusetts, Sunday lunchtime. Journey went well timing-wise, but eventful flight…turbulence, baby crying close to us for most of the six and half-hour journey and a medical emergency on board! Fortunately, a doctor was also on board and he proved a real-life hero in assisting the ‘in-flight patient’ who we felt really sorry for.

We’re now established in the beautiful Concord Colonial Inn and have just visited our first school, the impressive Gardner Middle School. 200 6th graders packed into the library to listen to me go on for an hour and a half about me, my background and, of course, my books. The students were more than impressive! They seemed to hang on every word and were more than keen to listen to the English accent! We’re back tomorrow (Wed) to do a book-signing.  We’ll report what happens…watch this space!  Pics to follow!  A BIG ‘thank you’ to Ms Lori Sweet for looking after us so well. I suspect we will be seeing much more of  Gardner MS in the future.
