Most surprisingly, my self-published novel ‘The Gritties’ a coming-of-age historical thriller about the women in the miners strike got made into a film by S4C, here in Wales and went on to win two Wales BAFTA awards.
Deeply grateful to Ronw, Liz, Lona and Lowri at Boom for this, amazing director Ashley Way, screenwriter extraordinaire Gwyneth Lewis and the wonderful cast and crew, plus commissioner Gwawr Lloyd of course…
The goddess agent Cathryn Summerhayes at Curtis Brown represents me.
Did it turn me into a luvvie? You judge…:)
