I did promise to post a picture of Jane’s interview with myself about the release of my new autobiography last April, but somehow, have only just got around to it. This has been more by necessity than design as I had to wait to get a ‘still’ taken from the video. But at long last, here it is, and you can see a very beautiful Jane! (And a fairly handsome ‘me’, of course!).
The Talk took place on a lovely spring evening towards the end of last April. The doors opened at 7 but the Talk itself was scheduled to begin at 7.30. It was well received, and filmed by two independent video crews, and I have been promised a copy of the other film and given permission to use selected extracts from this on the Internet. In fact, the content of the two films will be identical, although I suspect the sound quality of the other one will be even clearer, as we were both ‘miked up’ with microphones leading straight into the camera.
Jane began by briefly summarizing the book but she gave more empathasis to my early days and how these had led to my having an influence to my later involvements in mysticism, the occult and Wicca. On my school days, she politely pointed out that I had never properly finished my education by chosen instead to leave at 15 and go traveling across the continent. Well, I knew that some people had read the book – and others were about to do so – so I quickly pointed out that was because I’d been expelled from two schools and run away from another! That wasn’t meant to shock anyone, but just to avoid any later potential accusations (and it was being filmed remember) that I had avoided detailing any points that I had already made public in my book.
I will not summarise the whole of Jane’s interview again here, as I already did so in an earlier Blog that briefly summarised our Talk – albeit no picture was then available.
My main purpose now, is just to post up the ‘missing’ photograph, so it ‘fills in the gap’ in my earlier Blog post.
Speaking personally, I enjoyed Jane’s profound interview. Many people present remarked that there was a ‘certain chemistry’ between us. Well, I certainly felt very relaxed and uncompromised, so I could certainly agree with that!
I just wish more interviewers were like that nowadays, instead of merely trying to exploit ridiculous nonsense about the ‘real existence’ of ‘vampires’!
Thanks again Jane. We’ll have to do it again sometime!
For the moment,
