I am Jo Price and I am proud to say that I am an author and writer. My first novel, The Suitcase, has just been published on Amazon and I could not be more excited! The book is based on my grandparents’ experiences in Hong Kong during World War Two and has been a labour of love for the last ten 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 ten years, a marriage, two children and a divorce later – here I am published and getting a great response! It has been a truly amazing experience.
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 simply 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 minds for years. It can seem 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 down and write it.
Having someone ‘AngelWrite’ your story, as I prefer to call it, shouldn’t be something that is only available to celebrities; I want to make it accessible to anyone who has something to share with the world. I have to say, I am loving every minute of it!
