I am Jo Price and I am proud to say that I am an author and writer. My first novel The Suitcase is due out in July and I could not be more excited! The book is based on my grandparents’ experiences in Hong Kong during World War 2 and has been a labour of love for the last 10 years! I have always had a passion for reading and writing and was always curious and completely fascinated by my Gran’s stories about being a Japanese Prisoner Of War. From a very early age, I knew that it was a story that had to be written. It was a journey that had its ups and downs but 10 years, a marriage, 2 children and a divorce later – here I am ready to publish!
This Lady Writes…was created because I know that there are so many other amazing stories out there just waiting to be told. The reality is that people just do not have the time, the inclination or the know-how to sit down and write their memoirs or that novel that has been niggling them at the back of their mind for years! It just seems like such a mammoth task and more than a little overwhelming. I originally started to write The Suitcase for my children and family. The memories were just too precious to get lost in time. Once I started telling people what I was doing, I realised that there is a huge appetite out there for real stories about real people, so This Lady Writes is about giving people the opportunity to tell their story without going through the pain of having to actually sit and write it.
Having someone ‘ghostwrite’ your story shouldn’t just be something that is available to celebrities. I wanted to make it accessible to anyone who had something to share with the world and I have to say, I am loving every minute of it!
