I am a writer and historian with an avid interest in the life stories of ordinary people. When I discovered that 17,000 Guernsey evacuees had fled to England in June 1940, just before the Nazis occupied their island for 5 years, I was hooked! The evacuees also received help from American and Canadian citizens. As at July 2012 I have interviewed 200 evacuees both here in England, and in Guernsey - many chose not to return to Guernsey after the war. I have also written articles for magazines and newspapers on other subjects. I also run a community group for Guernsey evacuees living in England to enable them to share their wartime stories with people of all ages. I deliver Guernsey Evacuation workshops to schools and often take an evacuee with me to bring the generations together.
