i have named him, but if i didn't it will be obvious who he is - he was quite high profile for a while in scotland and london. i did go to the police (in aberdeen) but the domestic abuse liaison officer called me to tell me her boss had told her that if she had anything to do with the case then she'd lose her job. su
thanks for that - and good to find out at this stage.
how do other people manage to write about true events that may not sit well with the person they are writing about? is there a time frame maybe that could be involved? mine happened in 2001/2.
For Jo C
thank you for the article. i am thinking of changing the names and places and types of jobs, and trying to write it as being anonymous. some people already know that i am writing this book, but i am wondering that if i have gone as far as i can in covering up the identities would that be okay..........sort of names have been changed to protect the baddies!
