I’m looking forward to appearing at the Red Line Book Festival next week. Apart from the fact it is being held in one of the greatest cities in the world – Dublin – and hosted by the greatest people in the world – librarians – I get to meet two authors for the first time. I’m appearing on a panel with Ger Siggins and Alan Nolan. We’ll be talking about our sports-themed books; Alan’s focus on hurling and Ger’s on rugby. You know what mine are all about, right?
