Putting the world to write!

All publicity is good!


Thomas Magill, BBC radio presenter, and myself

echo feature

I truly got my 15 minutes and more of fame last weekend, getting a full page feature in my town’s local daily newspaper and an interview on local BBC radio (listen in here from 1hr20 http://bbc.in/1dBW1xJ). But not without drama I might add!

The newspaper coverage was especially generous, partly because I was a former reporter but also because they were short of copy, so my face ended up being posted at various points. It was a case of spotty Wally or rather my rather cheesy smile and floral dress in all sizes. I think my girls counted five times including a tiny one on the front page!

Of course appearing on the BBC is always a privilege and I especially like the presenter of the new Saturday Matinee show on BBC Essex, Thomas Magill, who I’ve met previously and had me giggling while the music played. They had been having technical problems all through the show and so we should have realised this would happen. But as soon as the interview was over, Thomas pulled off his headset to have a “proper chat” and I gave him a copy of the book. He was happy and said his mother would be delighted, and so on, we carried on talking for a while until the technician burst into the studio to tell us we were still live on air! If you do listen into the show – it is only on there for another 3 days – and forward to 1 min 46 secs you will hear us blissfully unaware. And as they say, all publicity is good publicity, even if it doesn’t always go to plan!
