The Write Escape is an edited version of my daily blogs during Lockdown, and covers the seven months from March to September 2020. But this is personal. I had been touring in The Mousetrap, Agatha Christie’s iconic play.

This book shares my feelings on the triple loss of livelihood, colleagues and identity. It outlines the daily routine; charts the changing seasons; records good days and bad. Along the way we mark anniversaries, meet a host of interesting people and discover some delicious recipes. Although it covers serious issues at a critical moment for the world, the over-all tone is one of hope, and faith in the human spirit to adapt and survive.
