Book signing before the dive

I harp on all the time about seizing the day and grabbing opportunities yet when I was invited to dive with sharks at Blue Planet Aquarium (which is pivotal to the plot in Three Little Birds) I politely declined. Sitting in a very large aquarium with toothy creatures from the deep was not on my personal Carpe Diem list. After further cogitation (gosh that’s a big word for me to use), I changed my mind.
