Fun in Falkirk with Shari
Another great Waterstones The Special Dead event at Behind the Wall in Falkirk last night, where I was in conversation with the wonderful Shari Low.
Behind the Wall is a great venue, and hosted sessions when The Mod was held in Falkirk. There was a very relaxed atmosphere for my event, and this led to some great questions and fun e.g. discussions on Rhona MacLeod's love life, and Shari confessing to taking a fancy to Sean (she had better join the queue!).
There was a discussion of the witches/Wiccan aspect to The Special Dead, and I had an opportunity to tell the story behind why the coven of witches is located in Edinburgh, rather than in Glasgow.
In terms of special 'dead' locations, I always like visiting Falkirk and its Old Parish Church yard.
Just a few steps off the bustling High Street silence descends, and you are very much in world of 'if you are reading this then I am dead' ...
