I ask this question should people write books that give details of other people’s lives?
I have written one book called “Not for Queen and Country” and I am now writing my second book “We spoke in whispers” My first book is about my military service and the second book about my childhood. I believe we should able to write our own stories and leave a record of our lives if we so desire. However there is a caveat to this! Where appropriate I think we should maintain peoples anonymity if they so desire and we should not compromise children, even through a third party. But it really is a difficult subject because whatever the story we are not going to be able to write it without including people who are part of that story or indeed the whole story.
I would like to know your views on this so please leave comment.
