The letter from my aunt Rose was addressed from Convict 103, Concentration Camp, in which she says, ‘I turn sweet 17 on Friday.’
Memory, truth and lies has become an important theme again in my work, since I developed my workshop programme – Write Your Life. I write pieces of my life in every novel I create. I write FROM my life – from under the skin of my experiences.
As we reach the bridge between 2020 and 2021 we can look back over the distance we have travelled and we can see just how much the landscape has changed around us. And we can look forward into 2021, into the mist of uncertainty.
Some may say that 2020 has been rubbish and in some ways it has. I have been able to explore new skills and new audiences for my work.
