Baker, Emily and Me

Last Friday, whilst I was at The End of the Road Festival in Dorset, my short story (Baker, Emily and Me) which won the BBC Radio 4 Opening Lines competition was broadcast. My lovely husband bought me a tiny portable radio just for the occasion, and at a quarter past three we went back to our tent to listen. That was of course a half hour early, so I heard quite a lot of what to do with your climbing hydrangeas on Gardeners’ Question Time before my story came on.

So, here’s a picture of me listening, with the handy camping toilet roll beside me.

If you fancy listening to a 15 minute story it’s available here until Friday. Make sure to let me know what you think. (Although the audio recording was only available for a week, you can read Baker, Emily and Me, on the BBC website.)

Or you can both listen and watch the best band at the festival – St. Paul and The Broken Bones, here.

Just don’t ask me about hydrangeas; I was too excited.
