From the Author

It's very personal. Writing it, took me to a place where i needed to go, to grieve for my father, that is what i will take from it the most. I had kept diaries knowing that one day my life would be worth writing about. I have always done so, and at many times writing away was the only place i felt i had to go. I was very lonely at this age and hope the book captures that. I didn't make many descisions when writing it, i didn't allow any self consciousness about being someone in the public eye to distract or prohibit me from what i wanted to do which was, to simply tell it as it was. It is a book i've dedicated to my parents, as a thankyou, in particular my mother who has been through hell and high tide.
