  1. Hi Sammy

    Your story was absolutely captivating… congratulations on your win, very well deserved!

    I also love your web site which is giving me lots of new reading ideas… to add to the ever growing pile of books (both physical and kindle) that I don’t have time to read.

    Sorry that we’ve never really talked… it’s always tricky finding time to get to know people in choir when I often rush in late and leave immediately we’ve finished.

    Anyway, enough rambling I really just wanted you to know I loved your story.

    All the best

    • Hi Laura!

      Many thanks for your comment, and for your kind words! I am especially pleased to hear I’ve contributed to that never-ending to-read pile, and I’d love to know which titles are currently on the top of your list. I’m also very much looking forward to Rome, where I’m sure we’ll get more of a chance to chat about all manner of things!
