Interview in the local press - Headteacher turned writer inspired by her late father.

It was totally surreal to be interviewed for the local newspaper. I kept stumbling over words and double checking that I had all my facts right as if I was going into a court of law.

Then the nerves were frazzled when it came out. Would people laugh? Think what on earth is she doing now? Thankfully, they didn't and I am so grateful for all the warm wishes and congratulations.

I only wish my father was around to see it and that I could hear my mother declare "What on earth are you up to now!"
