It felt wonderful, all the more important to me because she is a respected Social worker, who has an understanding of people living as the characters at Cranford Hall are forced to live. She also liked DCI Teasdale and his maverick approach, especially towards the bullying and murders with which he had to deal.
No amount of money could buy the joy that this dyslexic felt as she listened. I had achieved something I never dreamt I would beable to do. All the bad memories from childhood and student days faded away. In my heart I thanked all my former teachers and my editor who have helped get to that moment and I felt as brave as that fellow dyslexic, Richard Branson.
Then I returned home to a Facebook message from a friend who said she couldn't wait to see the stories on TV! Nothing matters, I have managed to write something that two people enjoyed reading. I felt more like a millionaire than a struggling pensioner!
