An Arresting Sight!

Sorry for the cliché but I was quite overwhelmed to meet my literary heroine Helen Fielding (author of the Bridget Jones series as if I needed to tell you all!) at the Cheltenham Literature Festival this weekend. Helen took part in a question and answer event in which she was sassy, funny and a little bit saucy and really endeared herself to the already charmed audience. Following that she signed copies of her new book Mad About the Boy which is where fellow fan Emma took this great pic (thanks Emma!). I managed to hand Helen a flier for Girl Cop and she seemed quite taken that I was a ‘real’ Policewoman’! A genuinely lovely lady who I would love to chat books with over a bottle of wine (or two!).
