Fire Woman- my autobiography- published April. 2017
"If you think you’re not interested in the fire service, don’t be put off by the title of this book! It is a really quirky (true) story with quite a ‘rock n roll’ angle about a young woman who became a fire fighter as a teenager. Indeed, each chapter is amusingly named with a song title from the era in which it took place (‘Burning Down the House’, ‘Teenage Kicks’ etc). There is no shortage of dramatic emergency situations that Josephine has to deal with (including an escaped monkey on the loose!), but this is balanced out with a colourful narrative of love, tragedy, humour and the crazy fashions of the time. A remarkable tale. Would make an excellent holiday read"
"The book and by extension you and your life, is amazing! I've only put it down between working as I found it totally captivating…Well done girl! You've had me laughing, on tenterhooks, crying, itching to turn the page and see what happens next..."
