All Together Now …

Aside from being called a “Living Legend” by presenter Mike Carlson on last night’s recording of The Crime Vault Live ** (a kiss of death if there ever was one) one of the nicest and most surprising compliments I’ve been paid occurred at the end of a  question and answer session I’d been taking part in with students from the Lycée Henri Avril in Lamballe, Brittany, recently, when a number of them rushed up afterwards (actually, they walked) and asked if I would join them in a group selfie. I’m the one in the cap.
