I Think I Met Nouha Taouk Today.



I think I met Nouha Taouk, writer of Whispers from a Lebanese Kitchen, today. I might be crazy but I swear I met her… okay, I am crazy but not the delusional kind. So weird to meet someone who wrote a cookbook that you own!

I’ve met authors of books I’ve read before but because I was at a workshop they were teaching, or I was attending a festival that they were speaking at, or had offered to be their slave (Kerri Sackville, that offer is still wide open), but I’d never seen one just sipping coffee out in the wild. The wild being at a shopping centre… I have three kids under Primary School age, that’s as wild as I get. She even noted that my two boys seemed quite cheeky, so I can testify that she is an excellent judge of character.


It was quite exhilarating so now I have to go have a lie down. What exciting things have you done today?

I have completed my first novel*... well third if you count the two magnificent pieces I wrote in primary school, and am really getting passionate about writing and learning about webdesign, blogging and publishing. *Since starting this blog I have in fact completed the sequel to said novel and am thinking of releasing it next year. But have also snuck in another two novels, one which I want to self publish next year, a memoir for all my fellow fifty shades of crae crae lady friends, and a flirty bit of feisty fun that will be epublished through Spice Ebooks in July 2015.
