This year's Radio 4 stories from the Bath Literature Festival were recorded on stage on International Women's Day and are all are written by women in the West Country, with women at their heart. They all have a slightly edgy feel to them, too, as ghosts, shadows and the memories of strange events unfold. In Jenni Mills' story, Cleaning the Silver, a daughter remembers her childhood under the regime of a strict and bullying father, and revisits the circumstances around his shocking death. Jenni writes psychological thrillers, and is the author of two novels, Crow Stone and The Buried Circle - the latter set at Avebury stone circle, not far from her home in Wiltshire. Cleaning the Silver is set in another place she knows well, one of the smaller Channel Islands.

Before turning to writing, Jenni worked in broadcasting as a producer, TV director, and radio presenter, fronting Woman's Hour, Famous For Fifteen Minutes and other R4 programmes.
