About

Cressida Pride was born in Durban, but she left in 2000 to escape from an abusive and violent ex-boyfriend. Welcome to the 21st century! The threat is still real and Cressida (an alias, of course), is currently hiding in London, having spent recent years in squalid room-shares.

 

Consistently living in fear, Miss Pride’s experiences make for compelling reading. The reader is often left thinking: “There but for the grace of God…”

 

Cressida made dreadful choices in life and love, but surely no woman who hasn’t lived can write such stories?
