Fire Colour On by Jenny Valentine
Four years ago author Jenny Valentine was diagnosed with breast cancer. She went with her husband to break the news to her parents - and learnt that her father had been diagnosed with cancer too, and his was terminal. Jenny's father died in 2012. This month, Jenny published her latest novel "Fire Colour One," including a character, Ernest, loosely based on her dad. Jenny joins the programme to talk about how a family copes when two members are ill at the same time, why someone dying is not an obstacle to getting to know them, and how she thinks the topic of death should be tackled in young adult fiction.
