Sheffield Telegraph

Monday 13th April 2009

Got a phone call this morning from Ian Soutar at the Sheffield Telegraph re an interview about the forth coming novel. Have already had an article in the Sheffield Star and the reporter just asked me questions about myself and, yes he did ask about the book but it wasn’t in print yet so when Ian asked this morning for a copy of the book it finally sank in – it is out there, I have no control over who reads it from now on - what will he think of it? What will he say about it? The book and the story feel so personal to me – not that it’s about me  at all – I feel very vulnerable letting it out there but I suppose in a way that is a good thing. It feels a bit like letting go of a child when you have nurtured them for many years
