CBF Update from Jean Flitcroft
Last week myself and Vanessa (my heroine, flawed but very adventurous and clever, as opposed to just flawed like me) toured the Meath libraries – Ashbourne, Dunboyne and Dunshaughlin to find out just who knew what about Cryptids (creatures like Nessie, the Loch Ness Monster) and cryptozoology (the hunt for these creatures). The questions were fantastic and they seemed to love hearing about the research and science behind the Loch Ness hunt. Some of them have sworn to go after the €50,000 reward that is still up for grabs. I’m definitely making them share it with me though!
Next week we’re hitting the Dublin libraries – Dolphin’s Barn, Raheny, Coolock and Inchicore. This time Vanessa has got herself got all caught up with vampire bats and the Chupacabra (the WHAT!?) in Mexico, and I’ll be reading about her adventures in my second book in the Crytpid Files which is called Mexican Devil. Hope I get some more off the wall questions, the ones that literally make you stop and think. Like how fast exactly can a vampire bat drink cow’s blood? As fast as a baby kitten can lap up milk I believe.
