Hi Leila - thanks very much for your reviews of the Sheila's book signing event. It's good to be able to read about it, when there is no way in the world I could have been there. It was nice that you were able to catch up with Sheila again personally and that you met Clare Eden!

Makes me sad to think that Sheila has been so depressed, but it's completely understandable. I'm sure Sheila writing about her experiences helps somewhat - even if only temporarily. I'm really looking forward to reading Sheila's book.

I'll let JAnet know your review is on the Forum as I don't think she's getting on her P.C. too much lately with a new and VERY frisky attention-seeking kitten in the Steele household!

Good luck with your studies and thanks again.
Love
Theresa
