Interview with Dani Atkins @AtkinsDani

Radio Verulam spoke to Dani Atkins this evening - author of Fractured and The Story of Us - as part of our local literary feature.

Born in London in 1958, Dani grew up in North London before moving to rural Hertfordshire in 1985, where she has lived in a small village ever since with her husband and two grown-up children.

She explained that the 'premise of both books are very similar, focusing on how lives can change dramatically and instantaneously following a sudden event - or accident.' 

Self-published initially, 'Fractured' focuses on the life of Rachel who wakes up after an accident with a perfect life, a fiance, a loving family and friends - yet a looming memory of a not so perfect life before the accident is proving hard to shake off. Gripping, romantic and heartbreaking, it asks - can two different stories lead to the same happy ending?

Dani said: 'We've all had those instances where we've questioned 'what if', the books focuses on the choices people make."
