The publication of my own memoir, ONE YELLOW DOOR, has taken all of us by surprise, reaching No 1 in the Amazon best seller list in three categories. I’m still not quite sure why! But with articles in The Guardian and The Telegraph, and appearances on the Lorraine Kelly show and several radio shows, here and abroad, with the Jeremy Vine show scheduled for early next month, it’s all been a bit of a roller-coaster. More articles either by me, or about the book, will be out in the New Year.
The problem now is that I have to get cracking on another book before all the broohaha subsides and I am left with just the allotment to dig.
