Nothing About Airplanes
There was a nice turnout and a few people I remembered from previous encounters. Some were familiar with my books -- others not -- so I rambled on, reading a bit from DARK SEASON, telling a bit about the whole series, talking a bit about how I came to write these books.
There were questions about research (yes, I do some -- more than I actually use,) about whether Elizabeth's children are based on mine (no, intentionally so,) about Elizabeth's attraction to Harice (yes, she was -- it was those bedroom eyes and and lazy smile, but it would never have worked,) and, the old favorite -- do I keep regular hours with my writing to which I always have to reply 'No, but I probably should.'
'And what sort of talks are those?' I asked.
'Mainly about airplanes,' he said. 'But this was nice.'
