Jessie was born twenty years ago today on Valentine's Day. I was so upset when she died (two years ago, after a long and happy life, peacefully in my arms) that I tried to cheer myself up by writing a story called Three Sisters about a young woman called Emily Castles who is upset when her dog dies. Emily tries to cheer herself up by going to a party in the big house at the end of her street... and ends up getting mixed up in murder.
Dear old Jessie. A few years ago we co-starred, with my daughter, in a series of home-made videos called The Dream Detectives, which were a bit short on plot but were great fun to make.
