our Guest Editor for August

Guest Editor - July 2010 - Veronica Henry

 

 

Veronica Henry began her career as a script typist for Radio 4s 'The Archers'.  

After two years in Ambridge she became a script editor for Central Television, then jumped over the fence and wrote scripts for ten years for many of our best loved dramas, including Boon, Heartbeat and Holby City.  

Her secret wish to become a novelist was fulfilled in 2000 and she has since written eight novels.  She lives on the North Devon coast which was the inspiration for her latest book, The Beach Hut.
