It was a pleasure to meet Erwin James of The Guardian newspaper while at the English Pen Conference at the Free World Centre. A great venue full of organisations doing great work to help people within and across the justice system from all perspectives.

I had read one of Erwin’s books while I was inside and delighted that he liked mine as much as I liked his. My favorite comment from Erwin was

“No-one has ever done this before, it is something very special”
