Between the end of the enlarged Presidency meeting and our last formal engagement in Stockholm I just had the time to catch up with an old friend and former fellow Brussels writers’ workshop member, Jeremy Duns. Jeremy used to be a Brussels-based journalist, writing a spy thriller with the workshop. When he’d finished the manuscript he started to send it to agents. One agent, specialised in the genre,┬áliked his work and before Jeremy knew it he had got a three book deal with Simon and Schuster. Now he enjoys that much dreamt-of status; he is a full-time author. We caught up on friends and acquaintances and Jeremy gave me some valuable tips on approaching the modern market.
