    Thanks for that, Angela! He’s a very interesting talker, isn’t he? And a lovely infectious laugher! Can’t wait to read the rash of books on parking crime… πŸ˜‰

    I loved this interview. Fantastic. Very good questions about writing in general, and about Precious Ramotswe, in particular. (I hope the 8-year-old felt her questions were answered.)
    And this writer is absolutely hilarious, just full of ideas every minute. I’m surprised he doesn’t have 10 books doing at once.
    You did a terrific job with the interview.
    I’m posting this link on some other blogs.

      So glad you enjoyed it, Kathy, and thanks for the affirming feedback — though it’s a strange interviewer who does even introduce herself!
      But you’re right: Sandy is hilarious, full of ideas, an erudite, witty and generous interview subject. How could I go wrong!

    You could not go wrong! And you so appreciated his humor and were with him every second.
    And I liked your thanking the Indigenous people at the beginning. How many people do that — writers, speakers, politicians, media members, etc.? Maybe some will learn from your excellent example.
