Kate’s 25th party, guest blogger #8 – Sarah Morgan

I’m delighted to welcome fellow Medical author Sarah Morgan, who doesn’t usually do publicity (and definitely doesn't do blogging!) but is being a sweetheart and guesting here today. Sarah also writes for the Modern/Presents line, and if you haven’t read any of hers yet, I can tell you she does brilliant Italian men. I have to admit that, um, I’ve partied with her as well (and I was cheering like mad at the party when M&B gave her an award for her 25th book, last September).

So here’s Sarah Morgan:


Congratulations on the publication of your 25th book, Kate! It’s been a few years since we met for the first time at an author’s lunch. We sat next to each other and you were wearing that amazing bright pink feather boa. We couldn’t stop talking and by the end of the lunch we were firm friends and half the feathers from your boa had transferred themselves to my dress. Since then we’ve both started to write for other lines but we both still love medicals and no matter what else we write, we still keep going back to them, don’t we? I’ve never worked out how you manage to be such a prolific writer, a wife, a mum and the technical guru who helps all the medical writers stay in touch. And all without looking flustered. You rock, Kate! (I’m practising teen speech for my next book.)


love


Sarah Morgan

Hi Sarah. You're pretty prolific yourself so no wonder you and Kate get on so well!!
Great to see you here anyway.
I think you're probably sitting in the dentist chair about now Kate so I'm sending you lots of numbing thoughts and remember - dont be a hero, take whatever drugs the dentist gives you after. And if he doesn't give you any - get another dentist!!!!

Love,
Amy Andrews

Kate Hardy said...

C'mon, Amy. Answer the question. Because I *know* you will have worn something outrageous *g*

Dentist can't fit me in until 2pm (DH is going to sort out school run, bless him).

And when I asked the lovely, sweet, kind receptionist if I could take some painkillers to keep me going... "Ooh, NO. The dentist will need to find the root of the pain."

Sigh. My dentist is not the emergency dentist today. Please, please, don't let it be her maternity leave cover dentist, who was scary...

I went as a hula-hula girl once, complete with shaggy perm and flower in my hair. One bloke undid my bikini top (safe under the flower lei), but another did it straight back up again and walloped him on the nose. I've always been one of the lads - it was the latter bloke whose crowd I was part of. Nothing outrageous though ...

Ah yes, I used to wear a see-thru black hippy top before see-thru was fashionable ... it was black with silver threads through it.

Diane said...

Oh, and good luck at the dentist. I think a tooth of mine just broke itself out of sympathy ... but my dentist isn't answering ...

AA said...

Oh no Kate- the root of the pain? That sounds very scary. I really, really hate dentists - I'm feeling your pain.
Dont think I've ever worn anything outrageous to a party. I dressed up as a cigarette girl at the last RWAust cocktail party complete with pillbox hat. If anyone knows how non-svelte my figure is they would well consider this exceedingly outrageous.
The only outragous thing I've done with clothing is burnt my bra for an english oral once. Nearly set fire to the classroom and gave the teacher apoplexy. But hey - got me an A+
Love,
Amy

I don't think I have ever worn anything outrageous. I wore a few mini skirts back when they were in. The way a lot of kids dress these days is any thing outrageous these days?

Michelle Styles said...

I went as a harem girl once at university -- does that count? And I did go to toga parties in my mis-spent youth.
It probably pales in comparision to a cigarette girl...

Diane said...

Oh yes, I've done toga parties too ... but was probably drunk at the time (they were on 18 - 30s holidays, but don't tell my dad). I've also gone dressed as a rugby player and a red Indian squaw (not very pc but that's what I went as). Funnily enough that was on the 18 - 30s holiday too ... hmm ...

Kate Hardy said...

Blimey - you lot really are outrageous at heart, aren't you? Remind me to keep you all on the orange juice at the next author party *g*

I suppose my 'outrageous' were the white lace fingerless mittens I used to wear in the 80s (and which mysteriously disappeared when DH and I moved in together). Or being dressed as a cat for Rag Week (big mistake going into a Leicester pub on a Saturday afternoon dressed like that).

I did have an Egyptian dancing outfit, but I'll have you know that's neck to toe covered. (I love the triangular scarf with the jingly bits, though...)

Amy - one word re how I got through the weekend: dihydrocodeine. Ny dentist was fabulous and has fixed the problem. (Have asked Sheila if I can have a sexy dentist hero. What's the betting she says no? *g*)

Diane - hope you get your tooth sorted pronto.

Just whizzing by to say CONGRATULATIONS on your 25th novel.
Love, P x

Hey Sarah, good to see you here - quite a few of your medicals made the cut into my shipping boxes and are on their way over to NZ as I type!!!!!!

Unfortunately, I paid a small fortune to have all of my 1980s fashion disasters purged from my mind, so I can't answer the question - though I might just wear a fluffy halo to the upcoming RWNZ conference if I'm feeling brave - this too, shall later be purged!!!

AA said...

Anything that ends in codeine has got to be good Kate. Pleased it's all sorted.
