Hello, Dr. Perry,
thank you for taking the time to talk to us about Stardust Always and your involvement. Tell us what Stardust Always is to you. Why did you write something for it?
It’s a way to use words to help fight cancer. Charity anthologies are one of the few things we fiction writers can do to help. I like to submit to as many of them as I can.
Tell us about your story. What message do you hope to convey to your readers?
I wrote a poem. I hope to help those grieving to know that others have been through that, though it’s different for everyone.
How did Rickman and/or Bowie influence your life?
Bowie’s music did for me exactly what I hope my poem did; helped me feel less singular during hard times. And Alan Rickman helped me remember that it’s okay to start a creative career late in life. I started publishing at the same age he did his first film. His name was part of my mantra.
If you could tell them/ him anything what would it be?
Anything you’d like to say to those whose lives have been affected by cancer?
We’ll beat this disease someday.
