I’ve done my talk all over the place (from Kirkcaldy to Canterbury, from Carlisle to Cardiff, from Dublin to Guernsey) but never in my home town of Whitley Bay – until last week (Wednesday October 14th) at the brand new library. It was great to see friends and family there. A couple of school pals I’d not seen since….well, for a long time! But best of all was seeing Mr Turnbull my amazing drama teacher. He told me that he never forgot my ‘enthusiasm’ for acting when I was a schoolboy. And he added: ‘I am glad to see that enthusiasm is there still”. So touching. A great crowd had turned up too. It was like an audiobook version of This is your Life!!!!
