Sending you a Fairy of Joy...

Months ago a friend sent me this 'Fairy of Joy' and I just had to share her with you.

I sent her over to give Patricia Wood at ORION a gentle tap a few days ago, but obviously she smucked her pretty hard. Pat's in New York, on her first ever trip to meet her agent and editor and publicist. I know this because she phoned this morning at 6:00 a.m. squealing with delight, oblivious to the concept behind 'time zones'.

I worked late last night so I was tired when I crawled over my 8 year old to answer the phone (he'd climbed in with me at 3 a.m. after having a nightmare). I didn't actually hear the first part of Pat's conversation because I was busy wiping up the glass of water I'd knocked over -- half on my night stand, half on my Newfoundland dog, who tore off after the cat -- but obviously the Fairy of Joy must have given Pat a few solid whacks.

And because it seemed to work so well for her, I've decided to send her your way too.

Have a great week everyone!

I'm making that same trip in July. Hope I have reason to phone you at 6 a.m. too ... or maybe just email LOL.
