Woke up to a lovely surprise this morning. My dear friend Matt North is revamping his website for his band ALL LIVING FEAR, and came across a couple of pics of us all backstage at the Whitby Gothic weekend in (I think) 1998 (Matt will correct me if I got that wrong!) hadn’t seen some of these before so I thought I’d post them here so you can see me in my Bride of Dracula look LOL
My dear friend Rhona is on the left, and me on the right, with Matt being fussed over before the gig. There is also a post-gig video, which I wasn’t aware was even being shot at the time. Ahem. Naughty naughty goings on.
Eight years ago! Blimey. Time flies. The differences are I have a few more wrinkles, I wear glasses for distance and I have a stack of weight gain, courtesy of being completely immobilised for over six months when the bone condition I have in my legs worsened. Other than that, same hairdo, same preference for black clothing. LOL We’re in the process of revamping bits of my website, and there's a reasonable portrait of me with a bunch of the books coming soon. Now that I’ve got actual novels out and forthcoming, I want the front page to be more about me and the novels, with a gallery of anthology covers as part of it, but not the main feature. Meanwhile, if you want to see a recent photo of me, here’s one taken with pal Wendywoo (AKA Mistress of erotica, Portia Da Costa) this summer. I’ve actually lost 4 pounds since then, go me!
