Said it on LJ already, but it's well worth repeating - 
congratulations!  Such exciting news, Kylie.

characters in Deep Secret)

>I won't be at Eastercon next year as I am expecting a baby in February!
>It will be my first, and I'm very happy and excited about it.
>And, strangely enough, there is a DWJ connection.  Two in fact.
>I met the father at Eastercon this year, and that is indirectly Minnow
>and Roger's fault.  I didn't know many people, so I went to see if I
>could sit at their table for dinner one night.  They all cleared off for
>a Convoy bid committee meeting, and I ended up at the table alone.  Then
>a rather charming young man came up and asked if he could join me.  We
>started chatting and one thing led to another...
>Anway, I blame Roger and Minnow :)
>I was also a little worried that the one of the characters in Deep
>Secret was based on the man in question.  I am all for DWJ fandom, but
>having a baby with a DWJ character is taking things a little far I feel!
>I lent him Deep Secret, and after reading it he assured me that no, it
>was not him, though he could see how I could think it might have been.
>So soon I will have a small child to bring up in they ways of good
>children's literature :)
