Jamie Deacon I do, yeah. One that's in the editing stages, and a trilogy I'm about to start work on.

That's really good to know! Larry's an amazing writer. You should check out his other books too (I didn't edit those, but I've read them). I'm guessing you have a work in progress (from your website)?

Jamie Deacon Great to meet you too, Deb. I'm really loving Unbroken so far.


Debbie McGowan Hi Jamie,

Thanks for accepting my friend request - I saw you were reading Unbroken (I edited / published it) and looked you up, saw the Liverpool, rock music, shy, dog lover... likewise! Though not a huge footy fan, but a red nonetheless. Good to 'meet' you!

Deb
