Wartime Friends - now out in hardback and in paperback from April 28, 2022 - is a tale of unbreakable bonds in times of strife, by bestselling author Margaret Dickinson, the so-called Queen Of Saga.
Its release is poignant, written during lockdown, when we were unable to see friends, it deals with lifelong bonds forged during the backdrop of war - not the ongoing Russia invasion of Ukraine, but World War II.
The Sunday Times top ten selling author and her fans are familiar with the theme, most of her 38 books - the past 29, including latest novel with publisher Pan  MacMillan - are set during the First and Second World Wars, featuring strong, female characters.
Here in an exclusive chat with Graham Walker, the 79-year-old gives details about the book, what inspires her stories, her book-a-year writing process and  gives advice to aspiring new authors.
Margaret tells why she would never write about the Ukraine war - or in deed the miner's strike.
And she reveals the name of her landmark forthcoming 30th book with Pan MacMillan and her books she would love to see turned into a TV series.
