Money raised for injured fire fighter
Steve Morris, a fire fighter from Green Watch, Bolton, (UK) attended a fatal incident on 23 June 2008 in which three fire fighters received burns, Steve received 50% burns. A special web site has been set up to record Steve’s progress and the views, feelings and support of his family, friends and colleagues.http://www.fireservice.co.uk/steve/index.php
My husband is a former fire fighter from Red Watch, Southsea and my thriller, IN COLD DAYLIGHT, is dedicated to fire fighters and was inspired by a true and tragic story, which I heard on the Watch one day about the high number of fire fighters contracting cancer. I took this idea and weaved it into a fast-paced thriller, which was shortlisted for the World Book Day Prize 2008.
I would like to thank everyone who bought a copy of my books. Steve is making steady progress and shows tremendous courage and determination but then that’s fire fighters for you. I wish him all the best for his recovery.
