Why I Wrote this book.
This is my life. I wrote this story because I wanted to go back in time and explore some of the things that happened to me. I wanted to understand why I reacted the way I did at the time. I’ve changed the names of the characters, organisations and some of the places. Some of the characters have been blended and timelines compressed to aid the story telling. However, I’ve worked hard to remain true to my memories, as trustworthy as they can be over time. Many of the experiences relayed in this work were poignant events and feelings and scenes have been etched deeply in my memory. This work is a journey through the late 1970’s and early 1980’s.
