Too cool for school! Moody gets starstruck!

You’ll like this… Today I took the afternoon off writing to watch one of my daughters being presented with an excellence in English award at school. I don’t need to tell you how proud I am, not just because she’s shaping up to be an incredibly talented writer, but also because her coursework is regularly littered with zombies and other horror references. That’s my girl!

But just when I thought the day couldn’t get any cooler, look who presented her award. It’s only bloody Kate Ashfield – Liz from the classic Shaun of the Dead! I was incredibly cheeky and asked for a photo…

In all seriousness, congratulations to Becca for being awesome, and thanks to Kate for being so accommodating. It must be daunting when you’re at your old school and a six foot plus, angry-looking old bald man goes all fanboy on you. Still, I gave her a signed copy of HATER for her troubles!

And to the members of Moody’s Survivors who read this – before you start, yes, that is me smiling (again).
