Lee and me


I had a great night out to see Lee Child at the Dunedin Public Art Gallery on Friday. What they neglected to tell us on the tickets was it was a proper wine tasting as well. Fortunately, I went with a friend and her daughter dropped us off so I wasn't driving because we had bubbly, then a chardonnay, then a sauvignon blanc, then a pinot gris, then a red!

By the time we got to listen to Lee Child we were a very relaxed and happy audience!

This was the last event at the end of a long tour for Mr Child, so it was just as well we were all very chilled out and it was pretty much a big Q & A session. The quality of the questions was pretty good considering how much alcohol everyone had drunk, and Lee gave fabulous answers. He was a very witty and warm man.

I got my gratuitous writer shot. If I look flushed, it's because of the wine.

Witty and warm is an appropriate way to describe Lee Child. Glad you had such a fun evening.

You seem a tad reluctant to move on to your next post! Who can blame you!
