An interview with Vicki Clarke at BBC Radio Somerset!
With the publication day for AATSB drawing ever closer, it was so exciting to be invited to BBC Somerset to talk about my book.
I really had to pinch myself as I stood at the platform of our village station watching the orange glow of sunrise filter through the trees, I was actually going to be on the radio!
It was another exciting episode in the run up to the publication. Taunton isn’t too far from Bath and I loved the train ride through the Somerset Levels. West Country grey skies reflected silver in the abundance of water and wading birds dipped their beaks in, taking a long drink.
Once there, Vicki Clarke whisked me away and before I had time to get any nerves I was halfway through chatting.
It was very relaxed and the whole team at BBC Somerset were amazing. I was so please to hear that a few of the presenters had already pre-ordered their copies! One of the producers told me that her daughter loved Indian myths, which got me all excited again when I thought about her reading Asha’s story.
The programme will be aired at some point around Christmas – what a fab early present! Keep your eyes open for news of the broadcast date.
