My job for the evening was to interview Karen, yes of course I was nervous as I have never interviewed anyone before, let alone on stage and in front of a nearly packed auditorium. But I must say after a few early nervy moments, I settled into the seat and the questions, which were written on cards came flowing out of my mouth.
There was even a Q and A with the audience which went down well with the questions they asked Karen. Then after the hour long conversation, drinks and snacks were the order of the day, well night in this case.
There was also a nice long queue of people wanting a signed copy of the book with all the proceeds from the books sales going to North London Hospice and apparently over £1,000 was raised. Also to mention that Charlotte Matthews gave an excellent plug on stage for the charity!
