I have just got back from a great book festival - the dlr Mountains to Sea Festival - which takes place just south of Dublin, Ireland. What a lovely time I had. There was a great audience and they took some photos while i was working and I have put two of them below. They were taken by Emily Greene for the dlr Mountains to Sea Festival. It was fantastic weather while I was there and as we were right down by the sea it was all rather splendid, with some big yachts coming into harbour under full sail - all rather romantic and stirring. I met some lovely people too, not just people from the festival but other writers and illustrators. Hope you like the photos.
