What makes a good man bad? Nature or nurture? A story of secrets, lies, loss and abuse…

You'll have copies before Christmas!

I know this might be later than you had hoped - people keep asking me for the book so they have something engrossing to read during these strange days...but publishing, like everything else, takes on its own schedule these days. In fact I'm pleased as the official publishing date will be in the dead time in early 2021 and we will have a fantastic party! Thank you for your patience!

The photographs are finalised and the book has had an exhaustive and exhausting read for libel (unbound does this for all memoir - very professional). Now we wait for proofs, and will get them sent out to line up reviews and interviews. All ideas welcome!

Meanwhile here are a couple of photos from the book: 1) my christening in 1958, Kilwa, Tanganyika, with the Governor General and his wife, Lord and Lady Twining. Look at those shorts!

2) With my parents - and the dog - in the garden in Zomba, Malawi, 1966. I loved being a brownie!
