Want to hear something amusing about my memoirs? I wrote these books largely for my daughters, but my girls and Franck have never read them, nor do they have any intention to.
Readers in Victoria often pepper my immediate family with questions about their role in my Grape Series stories. My family always answer the same way - “No idea! Haven’t read them!”.
People tend to be surprised, but I for one have no problem with my family’s loudly expressed disinterest. As they have all explained to me at various times, my books are MY memories and MY version of events. They don’t want their own memories to be obscured by mine. Fair.
Between you and me, I am relieved. If Franck and my girls read my books, they would undoubtedly take issue with my recollections and my portrayal of them. One thing my family has in abundance is OPINIONS.
Also, some people ask why I stick with a “closed door” sexy times policy in my memoirs. My answer is simple: I don’t have a million+ dollars to pay for the future therapy for my girls if they ever did decide to crack open the books.
But as for my novels? In those, I can do whatever I want. Bwah ha ha.
