Working with the charity, Northern Bridge Productions, using creativity against addiction, we realised how often people needed a safe place and are afraid they won’t get it, go the other way, taking on The Edge and all its variables. Safe can be a thought, a memory; that goes for all kinds of people with lives that addiction does not touch.
By chance, the subject of writing a short story came up in a park in North London after a concert. ‘Writing a short story. What a lovely idea. Would never have thought of that.’ I asked unlikely people with busy or well established lives; not one said no. So, all ages and all backgrounds are presented in this book written with pleasure.
