I won the 'International Women in Publishing Award 1996' but couldn't make it to the award ceremony as I decided to give birth that day instead. I have written 7 books but the Diary is the only manuscript I have made public so far. More to come! So keep an eye on my website, twitter and facebook pages to keep up!
A review of My Grandad's diary:
Such memoirs by a Private are very rare. Your grandfather's account of his training and service in France will be of great interest to those discovering relatives who served in the First World War. He skilfully portrays the random nature of the casualties and the boring routine….Your short story at the end is moving.

First person accounts are always interesting - doubly interesting when the person doing the writing is only a couple of branches over in the family tree. James was my grandfather Michael's older brother. Reading about his life during the war makes that important chapter in our collective history that much more meaningful.
... and Rosemarie's short story at the end is perfectly charming.
Thank you for publishing this gem.
