We all have a story to tell about our lives and I was invited by Sonia Poleon at Colourful Radio to speak on air about my story and my decision to write it all down. My conversation with Sonia begins with explaining why I chose to write by book 'When Dad Became Joan: Life with my transgender father', how I struggled for a long time to come to terms with my Dad's change in life, and why I have chosen to support others who are finding it difficult to keep their mindset on the straight and narrow. Listen to the interview to find out more about the lifestyle change strategies I teach and use myself.
In1987 when my Dad told me that he didn't want to live life as a man anylonger I didn't know how family life was going to be anylonger. The normal that I had been living for 23 years had, within seconds, changed out of all proportion into something I would never have imagined. 'When Dad Became Joan: Life with my transgender father', discusses my version of events and how my Dad's decision to undergo transgender reassignment affected the key areas of my life. How we manage huge change in our lives is different for everyone and can make you question what normal is.
