Okay, I have a few confessions, straight from Iceland! One, I don’t really read crime books, so putting me in a crime festival… Well, it doesn’t really make sense. 🙂 I mean, I write crime books, or, as I like to say, adventure stories with crimes in them, but I don’t really get all that excited about reading a crime novel.
What I did get excited about, was meeting Thorin Oakenshield!
Now, Richard Armitage only plays Thorin in The Hobbit films, and he was at Iceland Noir to talk about his crime book. I have bought the book, and I am reading it, but… Thorin!
So, I was playing it so cool, but when a photo op presented itself, I do admit to leaping at the chance to have my photo taken with Thorin… I mean Richard. The author! If I had thought about it, I might even have put the flash on the camera. But, alas, it’s a grainy and murky shot, but because you asked (and even if you didn’t) here it is – me geeking out! 😉
