I am getting the hang of writing misleading headlines from reading the Daily Fail. But beneath the headlines, I haven’t written a book. Yet!
What I’m actually doing is known in the medical profession as an avoidance technique. I’m using the book to avoid talking to anyone and by anyone, I mean everyone. I’m absolutely terrified and it’s having a really negative impact on my life. But until my want to talk is greater than my fear, I won’t be confronting my phobias, fears and failings. I’m going to completely, ignore and swerve them and do what I want to do instead.
The book launch isn’t a complete fabrication. I’m finally listening to the many people who have said “You should write a book”. I’ve stopped laughing and I’m starting to take them seriously. Although there have been times when I wanted to reply “Well, if we’re in the business of telling people what they should do with their lives, I think you should drive a tractor”! Can I blame my friend Betty Bitch?
I have two books on the go now:
Prison – a sentence for all the family.
Everything loved ones need to know about prison, covering every stage from ‘You’re all nicked’ to ‘Good luck with your happy ever after‘.
The Story of Mr Criminal.
From Billy Good Boy to Mr Criminal and his story from childhood, the school to prison pipeline, the revolving door and each of the seven pathways on his journey to reform.
Yes, yes, yes. I know both topics have been written about many, many times over. Never in the style of Keef though! And it gives me a great excuse not to talk to you!
As long as I’m hidden behind my screen, you can talk to me as much as you want. Until further notice please contact David instead. He knows loads more than me about prisons, being in prison, prison reform and mental health anyway!
I’m being an Author for now.
