Leslie Ash started working in showbusiness at the age of four and went on to become one of Britain's most popular actresses. Her big break came in the film "Quadrophenia" and she became a household name in the hit BBC comedy ‘Men Behaving Badly’ as well as starring in a string of other TV shows.
One of TV's best-known faces, Leslie was also a newspaper regular given the intense press fascination with her personal life. Now she wanted to tell her own story, in her own words. As a book, it had so many elements – not only Leslie's long and fascinating career as an actress, but her life as a wife and mother and the huge adversity she faced when her world was changed forever after contracting MSSA. After suffering spinal nerve damage, she woke up in a hospital bed unable to feel her body and had to learn to walk again. Her strength and determination amazed me.
