Christopher Griffith

about this book: This book is about the events surrounding the premature birth of my son.

• What benefits does it offer my readers?
It's a book about mental illness, and how it can be assuaged not just with medication and talking treatments, but with subsequent real life events also

• What inspired me to write the book?
My wife and I endured a torrid time in this process, and for me certainly committing my experiences to paper was very therapeutic

• Who is it intended for?
It's intended for anyone who has suffered life crises, or indeed anyone interested in the subjects of mental illness and premature birth

• How long did I take to write it?
Two months

• Why did I choose this cover?
It's my first non-fiction book, so I wanted to mark it out as different from my other books

• What was the hardest part of writing the book?
Reliving some of the memories was really tough, keeping going with the narrative sometimes a tremendous struggle

• Did I do research for it?
I read the Bible whilst my wife was in hospital - I explain the relevance in the book!

• Did I learn anything from it?
From the experience, yes of course, that childbirth is a miracle, oh and that my wife is one tough cookie - again, it's in the book!

• What do I want to say to my readers?
I really hope you enjoy the book, and if so tell the world!!
