Me, John and a BombAs I was writing Me, John and a Bomb in 2004/5, I was very aware of the contemporary issues. Writing a book set in London where the main character (Sky) is a woman obsessed by explosives, meant I always knew that events in the real world might suddenly overtake the narrative and force me to adapt the book.

So when I made my way into work at Aldgate on 7th July 2005, the implications – for my book at least – were clear as soon as we all knew what we were dealing with; bombs on the tube and on London’s streets. Nothing would ever be the same again.

    • @MandyBerriman You can't beat flies. I've gone out, where I guarantee I won't see a single fly. And we all know why… https://t.co/vfWaa6l1Ls
    • @4ndrewJames I do. Because I was thinking it while you were typing it.
    • Anyone notice a lack of flies round your way? That's because they're all in MY BLOODY LIVING ROOM.
    • @4ndrewJames Oh please don't leave all of it to me. I'd be embarrassed. Your family deserve a little something.
