Dilys and I had finished writing a book when she was taken ill in late 2017. This book has now been published in Dilys’ memory and all proceeds will go to charity in her memory. For those of you who have been influenced by her, or even perhaps by me, I hope you will find this book useful and a fitting tribute.
