    Diana, fascinating reading about your road to writing, your genre and your plans. I do wish you all the best in everything you do. I am interested that your family originates from the Channel Islands, I have spent a lot of time, though not for the last 15 years or so. My husband’s family lived in Jersey for a long time and one of his sisters is Jersey born. So much history there for a start. I adore history and social history is so fascinating. I wish you success in all you do. Jane. Thanks Morgen. 🙂

    Thanks Jane. Yes all the islands have fascinating history but I thought I’d try to redress the balance and give a perspective before the well known history of WW2 with the occupation of J and G and evacuation of Alderney folk. In fact my Great Grandfather died during the occupation in Guernsey but I wanted to know a little more about what life would have been like for them growing up…hense the research.. Social history is so much more than facts but trying to get into the minds and lives at that time. All the best Diana
