Themes of the importance of finding yourself and your family's path through history resonate strongly with me and feature in all my novels but especially in my forthcoming novel 'Red Leaves' (to be published in September 2014 by Macmillan Children's Books) so... I wrote my letter through the eyes of my character Zak Johnson... who will you write your letter from and to?

But be warned...you may need a box of tissues by your side... these letters tug straight at the heart strings.
