Tony Lee in Edinburgh

So this weekend I'm flying up to Edinburgh for four days, where I'm a guest at the
Edinburgh International Book Festival. It's an absolutley massive book expo with a ton of famous writers, and I'm there to talk about Outlaw: The Legend Of Robin Hood among other things, and show kids how to write comics.

It's an incredible honour for me, actually - if you read my columns you'll know that I pretty much love doing school talks to kids who want to grow up doing what I do - after all, if it wasn't for a children's book writer doing the same to me when I was a kid, I'd never have become a writer. So the chance of being able to talk to kids on two days, let alone spend a day in Glasgow doing an outreach programme for a couple of schools - is brilliant.
