A Dangerous Daughter in pictures
The slideshow below is to illustrate some of the themes in my new novel, A Dangerous Daughter. I address these images in the attached podcast and video.
I’m delighted to share with you this podcast/video, which I made with the well-known podcaster Darren Saul of the Playing With Perspective series. Darren helped me to open up about my inspiration for writing A Dangerous Daughter, and to reveal how my own early life informed much of the story. I discuss why I wrote this book as fiction, rather than as a memoir, and the agony and ecstasy of the writing process. Having to re-visit traumatic events from my teenage years was traumatic, but I wanted to share my experience to help others understand how the mind can control the body. If my story helps just one person suffering from the insidious and misunderstood disease of anorexia nervosa, it will make the labour of writing this book worth every minute.
