I believe one of the best things about blogging is the friendships that have been born since we started. One such good friend is Karen Mahoney – a few months ago, this Karen person started to comment on the blog and then one day she emailed us to talk about our Neil Gaiman, an author she also loves. We started exchanging emails back and forth and of course, we now read her own Livejournal as much as she reads our blog. Karen is super cool, a geek such as us and she is a writer as well, with her first story about to be published in an anthology.
This whole post is to say that luckily, Karen lives in England as I do and today I went to London to finally meet her in person! We had a splendid time, chatting over coffee for 3 HOURS about all sorts of things.
This is a picture of us, at Murder One, where she works. I am holding in my hand, the “excuse” we had for meeting up: the collection of Manga she lent me for a Manga Appreciation Week we have in the works!
It was really great and I can’t wait to see her again – which I am sure, will happen soon, right Karen?
