E-mail from P.C. in the UK

P.C. I could ask so many questions. When you first think of a story you might write which will be a mixture of fiction, fact and biography, as "21 ALDGATE" is, where do you start your base line? How do you plan your research? Did you have a strong desire to write the family story? I must admit to very little real understanding of the political and social turmoil and joys of the early part of the 20th century and found your interspersing ideas and events with some basis in reality quite educational and easy to absorb. As Uncle Paul said to Victoria, he suggested rather than be a painter, "it would be better if she could write like her mother."
