Rhys Hughes and A Sereia de Curitiba

I’ve just finished writing my latest book, The Mermaid of Curitiba, and I’ve just e-mailed it to a publisher. It’s a nice feeling, writing a book. This is only the twelfth time I’ve ever done it. Other things I’ve only done twelve times include: eat a raw carrot, play a chord on a banjo, get older by one month each year.

Things I’ve done less than twelve times include: ride a horse, gatecrash a rabbits’ party, listen to a Beta Band album. Twelve is an interesting number. Yes.
