Margie Orford

@ Sunday Times Books LIVE

I’ve made it! I am on Elmore Leonard’s website!

You have to check this out. I am on my hero’s website.

Crime novelist Margie Orford was born in London but grew up in Namibia and South Africa and now lives in Cape Town. Her latest book in her popular Clare Hart series, Daddy’s Girl, was launched this week.

“For months, all I’ve been able to read were endless manuscript revisions of Daddy’s Girl. Reading anything else would induce an acute dose of writer’s envy, so my bedside table was empty. Now the book is done and there is a pile of books next to my bed.

    I was very amused:) and thrilled with the power of Google. It must mean that I am not the only person in the world who googles herself!

    Pink, pinker, pinkest. Woohoo Margie! In RL I don't usually say things like this, but there's something about your being mentioned on your hero's website that makes it impossible not to say it: You Go Girl! Wheee. Triple smiley :))), yay, yay, yay.

    Ha!

    That is wonderful permission to indulge in all manner of hedonistic pastimes.

    Congratulations.

    Margie, that is awesome - what a brilliant self-google surprise. And smoking in bed is totally underrated, I suggest you take it up immediately.
