lunch with Alexander McCall Smith & Jennifer Byrne

I was thrilled to receive the honor of official photographer at the Literary Lunch with Alexander McCall Smith, one of the world's most prolific and popular authors.  The event was chaired by Australian journalist Jennifer Byrne over a three course lunch at the splendid Maya Ubud Resort & Spa.   Alexander shared humorous stories of Botswana, psychology and the ways of a frantic writer.  While the rest of us were swanning around the festival and taking long coffee breaks, Alexander penned 5000 words in less than 24 hours. I was just as excited to meet Jennifer, the face that introduced me to current affairs on 60 Minutes and Foreign Correspondent in the late '80's.
