Anyway, I'm really excited about this, not just because it'll be my first solo engagement as a Real Author (eep!) but because I was born in Leeds and would quite like to see how the place has been doing in my absence. I used a few locations in a roundabout way for The UnTied Kingdom, and one I especially want to visit is Kirkstall Abbey, from which Harker and the squad rescued Eve, and which is in our reality a picturesque ruin (Note to self: don't forget your camera).
The talks are being held at Broadcasting Place, which I believe to be on Woodhouse Lane, in Leeds (there's a map here), and mine will be on Tuesday 21st May at 5.30. It's free to attend (although I think you might need a ticket: check the University's website for details). If you're in the area, pop along and listen to me rambling on about shoes, cats, and which celebrities I currently fancy. C'mon, it'll be fun!
