In June, Julie Heslington (Jessica Redland) and I headed off to Leeds to meet up with our Write Romantic pal, Jo Bartlett, and her friend Paula. Although Julie and Jo had met previously on several occasions, and I had spoken to Jo via text and Facebook for a few years, I had never met her in person before. It was a bit nerve-wracking. Luckily, she was just as lovely as I imagined, and so was Paula! We had a fabulous afternoon together – even if we did have to walk for what felt like miles to find somewhere to eat!
