I am female, married, English and live in Manchester in the United Kingdom. I belong to a local writing group and have written a number of short stories some of which I have recently entered into competitions.

I am thinking of expanding into novel writing and would like to write a novel set in South Africa during Apartheid.

As part of my research for this novel, I am looking for people who would be willing to talk about their life experiences (good or bad) during Apartheid and up to the present day and would love to hear from\about people of any nationality, age and of any lifestyle or profession.

I was therefore wondering if you would be kind enough to help me with this by talking about yourself, or possibly you may know other people who may like to talk about their experiences.

Your help will be much appreciated.

Kind regards
