Terrible Twos came out in January and I was surprised how well it did, so thank you to everyone who read it. I hope you all enjoyed it.
A lot of the experiences Zach had with his two nephews were what I experienced with y two boys. It was fun writing about what they got up to when they were younger. Now they are older they’re getting up to much worse!
The hospital scene was a difficult one to write as that was what I went through when my grandad died. I wanted to write it as a way to deal with what happened.
He didn’t die in a crash, but he had dementia and he did die in hospital. I arrived a few minutes after he had passed away, so I spent some time with him holding his hand.
He was a huge presence in my life and to this day I still miss him. He was a man who told it like it was, with absolutely no tact whatsoever! The number of times I had to apologise to someone when he’d said something that he didn’t consider offensive, but actually was…too many to count!
It’s been almost four years now since he left and I still reach for the phone to call him.
At least he’s with the love of his life, my nan. He never stopped loving her and talked about her every day after she left us.
That’s what I want too.
Take care xx
