Jacqueline Wilson

I have never read her. But I took my children to get her new book signed today; when we left (after about an hour and a half to get to the front), there looked to be about three hours worth of queue left. She says on the dustjacket of her autobiography that Jackie magazine, where she once worked, was named after her. Apparently this is disputed. Her shoes looked very expensive which, since she's sold 20 million books in the UK alone, and is the most borrowed author from libraries, they might well be.
I am going out to eat Chinese food now.

sf: The Stars My Destination, Alfred Bester
