    Hi Tim,

    Paul Barnes here the guy you met at The Exchange Dublin. I was glad to have had the opportunity to meet up with your group and hear something of how their visit to Ireland affected them and you. I’ve just got to your site so I look forward to checking it out as time allows. I will contact you by email with more to say.
    We here at Exchange would greatly appreciate something from you on behalf of the group as to how you benefited from the use of the venue.
    Great to meet you all

    Best regards Paul

  • I had the pleasure of getting to know Tim Weed while writing a member News article for SCBWI Newsletter by checking out this website. Wow! I hope others do too. Hope to drop in and meet you sometime at Grubstreet in Boston, in the meantime, I can’t wait to get my hands on Will Poole’s Island (Aug. 2014)
    Thanks again-
