Tales From the Shed 1: My Mother Was An Upright Piano

I am away right now without much Internet access, but by the magic of Blogger scheduling, I'm still able to blog! And here, for your delectation, is the first of my Tales From the Shed: a video, filmed by my partner, James, of me in my writing shed reading one of the fictions from my collection. There will be more... And maybe I will expand this to include me reading other people's Tales too. Or tours of the shed. Any requests?

This is fantastic Tania. You must, must, must do more of these stories from your shed. And you MUST give us a proper tour some time. I love rotting around in other people's writing spaces.

Wonderful! and your garden looks lovely too. I wonder how many other authors have sheds, and whether you could persuade them too?
