How was the writing influenced by/has touched you personally?

Is it even possible to write fiction without being touched by it personally?
By Christina “CEE BEE” Bauer

Whatever your genre, the world of your fiction is your creation: the settings, the noises, the smells. Sometimes your characters seem to do things of their own accord. But you can change that as easily as Charlotte Bronte wrote “Reader, I married him,” to round off her classic story about Jane Eyre.

It took me a while to realise that readers only had what I wrote on the page. If I didn’t say or show it was summer, the sun was shining, birds were singing, they might think it was dark midwinter and music was blasting from a parked car.

For me, writing—and then publishing—a novel is the most personal thing I’ve ever done. Like a lot of writers, I’ve drawn from my lived experience. More so for the feelings and emotions than for the descriptive details which are much easier. So in dealing with some difficult issues in “She, You, I,” I’ve had to delve into the complexities of my life or put myself in the shoes of people I’ve encountered and work out how it all felt.

Putting a novel out there is much more nerve-racking than standing for election. My son, then aged 14, said the most embarrassing thing in his life was waiting up till 4 am to watch his Mum lose her job in public. That was when I lost my UK parliamentary seat in a General Election. At least in politics you can blame your party, or leader, or events.

With a novel, it’s all yours. Which is why the feedback from readers of “She, You, I” has been so fantastic; to hear about the things that people have taken away from the story of Maisie and her family. Often they’ve been things that I hadn’t realised were there.

And yes, it’s influenced me, and will shape my next novel. Which I plan to get out this windswept autumn, as the birds fly south, the evenings draw in and people snuggle down under the duvet to read.

📘 📕 📗 📙 📖 📖 📚 📓 📒


An emotional page-turner of a story about a family torn apart by the legacy of war that asks the question: what happens to the hurt we can’t forget?
When Skye Stanhope returns to her grandmother’s childhood home, she’s searching for the roots of her life story. Why her tough-minded granny ran away to war. And why her brilliant mother died.

Behind the women’s successes, lies deep trauma. As Skye strips away the layers of secrecy, she confronts their inner torments: forces that bound the women together, but also tore them apart. It’s a journey from a poverty-stricken tenement block to an airbase in wartime Suffolk, through boom-time London to a coffee cart beside the sea.

Woven into the women’s lives is Tseng Hsiao Ling, a feisty, enigmatic seamstress whose fortunes become inextricably linked with theirs.

It’s a sweeping tale of love, war and family secrets over three generations.

Through each woman’s story, “She, You, I” holds up a mirror to the complexity of family relationships: mothers, sisters, daughters, and the unexpected twists in Skye’s search for closure.
