Hi Matt

Good luck with the festival and the rest of it. You probably won't remember me but I met you a couple of times when I was managing the Brook helpline and working with Youthnet. Do you still do that? Anyway, I'm now having my own teen novel published so I've been having a look on other YA novelist blogs. Looks like all is going brilliantly for you. So pleased for you with the film! All the best, Shanta

Shanta? Liz? Shiz? Just who is posting here? Either way, hello! I certainly remember one of you. Looks like I'll find out more about the other in your novel. I'm going to lurk around in your blog now to find out when it's out ...

Oops, occupational hazard forgetting one's identity! Meant to post as myself not one of my characters...

This is me!
