Interview with Jo Derrick

Posted on

Contrary to what you may have thought, this blog is still alive and well – if a little quiet of late owing to the small matter of finishing off the follow up to THE TRUTH ABOUT ARCHIE AND PYE. I’ll have much, much more to say about that in due course, but today I’m very […]

Well. You may have noticed that this place has been a little quiet of late. This isn’t because I haven’t got anything to write about – far from it, because things are really quite exciting at the moment. But the problem is that the fact that things are really quite exciting at the moment is […]
