Listening to the music of Bob Marley as a young woman growing up in East London inspired Millie Murray to think that she might one day become a writer.
Although I had trained as a nurse, to me writing was a white, educated occupation; having read loads of books, it never dawned on me that people of colour wrote them.
I am never without a book. It would be tortuous for me to be on a journey, short or long, without something to read. I have books in the bathroom, bedroom and the living room.
