Yes, Hugh is Director of Theatre at a wonderful school called St. Paul's in Concord, NH: a dream come true. He feels so appreciated here and very much at home with the ethos. I'm writing full time. Signed with HarperCollins for my first YA fiction so I'm writing an adult and YA every year now. We're also expecting our second little girl for the 7th of April, so all change. Hope all is well with you. My email is virginia@virginiamacgregor.com and Hugh's is hmacgregor@sps.edu. Much love, Vx(less)
