Gosh ..  Claret Press has started to promote my memoir!


Do you like the cover?


Writing the lives of the 118 Oxford castaways and the fictional memoir of artist Little Winter in Brushstrokes in Time made me start work on my own. I want to tell the untold story of white women like me who married men of colour – when that was hard.  That’s why Claret Press wanted to publish it. At a time of partisan hostility on public platforms leading to a lack of trust, I hope my perspective can add a spoonful of kindness along with the recipes from family and friends at the end of chapters.  They are a sensual expression of Britain at its best when it relishes diversity .

Thank you Weimin He for your delightful caricature of me which is on the cover.
