Liberty, Lock-up and Lockdown (Front Cover)

Michael Terence Publishing is excited to announce the release of Liberty, Lock-up and Lockdown: Sally Barber’s Prison Diary and Memoirs, all to the Sound of Music.

About Liberty, Lock-up and Lockdown:
A true story, Sally Barber’s prison diary covers the period just before incarceration at Her Majesty’s pleasure on 7 June 2019, to her eventual release on parole on 10 March 2020, three weeks before the first Covid-19 pandemic lockdown. It gives a shocking account of Sally's traumatic time in HMP New Hall, a women’s prison in Wakefield, West Yorkshire.
Told with honesty and compassion, it explains the events that led to Sally’s imprisonment and sheds light on the challenges she faced working as a government officer for a local council, where workplace bullying and political puppetry were rife.
Sally explains the anxiety and stresses she faced, due to pressures on her at work, whilst she tried to cope with the menopause. She also reveals the impact on her whole family, throughout her rollercoaster journey through the court process, prison and probation systems, and then back in the outside world facing Covid-19, unemployment and subsequent counselling (for PTSD).
Through humorous personal anecdotes and references to her life's soundtrack, this book provides an interesting insight into Sally’s childhood, successes, and failures throughout her career. It draws on her love of all things alpaca, music, motorsports and rugby league. These and her other passions of the English language and writing helped her cope in the face of adversity, turning negative into positive thinking. In the hope that things would get better, whilst putting two fingers up to the judge who put her inside, her writing provided her with a nod to nostalgia. It took her back to happier times, to counteract the boredom and loneliness inside.
