Like any proud parent, I took pics of the delivery...
The postman knocks twice - wrong address, so the baby was two days overdue.
Birth announcement included (MM405 promoted on postcard along with Anita Dayer's Poachers in the Pongos and Fran Hurcomb's Going Places).
One last push...
Introducing Tansy Hill and her wrinkly babysitter Miss Stella
The proud mother and her latest offspring.
With special thanks to my editor Sarah Harvey, without whose keen eye, light hand and kind heart Meeting Miss 405 might not have entered this world.
Sarah has two new books of her own just out, too. The Lit Report and The West is Calling add to her already published Puppies on Board and Bull's Eye. Read all about them, and other of Orca's latest offerings here.
