I’d first like to wish my son, Jason a happy birthday.  All the best, mate.


Yesterday’s book-signing in York was a wonderful success and I’d like to thank everyone at Borders for their help and support, in particular Lorraine for organising the event and making Vanessa and I most welcome.  I’d also like to thank fellow signer of the day, Pam Ainsley for her friendly companionship.  Pam was signing copies of her photographic album of images taken during the shooting of the Dunkirk scenes at Redcar for the award winning film, Atonement.  I’d like to wish Pam well with her album.  Details of the Atonement Album can be found on her website – www.pamainsley.co.uk.


I’d also like to thank Miles Salter, one of the organisers of the York Literary Festival for dropping by with some kind words and giving the signing a mention in the Festival newsletter.
