I suppose I always wanted to write. For some reason, I never quite knew what to write, or when, or how. I remember when I was young I developed an intense fascination with a typewriter. My late cousin Olga got it from work and when she realised that I liked it more than she knew what to do with it, she gave it to me. So when all the children were playing outside I was whirled away in the resonance of clicks and clanks.
It wasn’t until I was 29 and was going through a divorce that an unbearable pain would introduce me to a book I have always carried within me.
