Happy birthday, me!!!
What an indulgence, what fun - to write a book that is framed around Irish fiddle tunes! Kate Thompson has written a book that explains a lot - how the fairy world and our world live side by side, only we have time, or death as the fairies put it, and they do not. Until time starts to drip through. The fairies start getting older, the sun moves in the sky, and on our side, - we're perpetually on the run, with no time to get anything done. The subtle shift from the way everyone actually feels these days, totally busy, to how it would feel if we really were missing a few more minutes each day - is done very well. And when time comes back - well, that is a vision for fairies. I grabbed it first, but my fiddling daughters won't be far behind.

Today is the day I move on. I'm sending off the first four chapters of the book I've been writing with Terri for the past year. Our fantastic agent is going to give it a read, and pepper us with questions when she's done. Hopefully she'll adore it, and have a hundred easily fixable questions.
