BBC ARTS EXTRA INTERVIEW ONLINE NOW

The interview I did yesterday with Marie-Louise Muir (left), on BBC's Arts Extra, is online here now. Even though I was in the RTÉ studio in Athlone and Marie-Louise was in Belfast, it felt like we were having a little chat. It was also the first time I've been interviewed by a female presenter, which felt different somehow. Well she had read and enjoyed the book, and she has a lovely, soothing voice so my nerves flew out the door and it felt easy talking to her. I get less and less nervous the more of these radio interviews I do. Bring 'em on! And, I must say I like the way RTÉ and the BBC facilitate each other with studio space etc. How's that for cross-border co-operation?

That was great! You do my kind of research! Ha!

The central tragedy made me cry snots, by the way.

Not long now, and then weehee - writing time!
