BLOG The Man with The Hat is back

It won’t have escaped anyone’s notice that my postings on forkncork have been rather sparse of late.

Yes, I have been busy setting up the food section for The Sunday Times ‘Sunday’ magazine. And writing my two articles a week.  Judging wine comps and attending press junkets. But the main reason for abandoning, albeit temporarily, my first love is that I’ve been burning the midnight oil finishing a novel. ‘Girls, Me and D.J.P’ is now ready to see the light of day. It’s in the hands of a lit’ry agent, hopefully en route to publication – the Comte de Champagne is on ice. But if the buggers don’t like it I intend grabbing back my maius opus and publishing it privately, probably as an e-book.

Anyhow, there’s a short synopsis and a few excerpts on if anyone’s interested.
