Introduction

Autobiography 2 It was a cold morning on Christmas Day. I woke up to the sound of rain pattering on the conservatory roof. I was 12 years old at the time, my parents must have been really tired of my constant nagging and begging. I didn't just beg my dad when he was around; I made posters, sticking them on the inside of the wardrobe doors, under their bedcovers and in his briefcase.
