At the recent Theakston Crime Festival in Harrogate, fellow McVoices chum Allan Watson sat down and chatted to the great man (yes, that is Ian Rankin sitting their too) and told him about the blog post I'd written. An iPhone was quickly thrust at him and the great man then read my words. Amazing!
He seemed to enjoy what I'd written and had a few little grins while reading. I'm so in awe of McIllvanney that I'd never be able to tell him face to face how much his writing means to me...so it was wonderful to know that through McVoices, I've been able to communicate my feelings!
I did scream quite a lot when I saw this photo...well wouldn't you? Beware who might read your blog posts!!
