Hilary Linstead, Elisabeth Davies Book and Novel

Hilary Linstead, Elisabeth Davies - Authors


Hilary and Liz went to school together in the UK before their lives took very different turns.

Hilary Linstead left England for Australia at twenty-one, pursuing a man and her dream of becoming an actress. She discovered that she couldn't make a full-time living as an actress and went into business with a friend, first as a casting director, later becoming the first theatrical agent for directors and designers in Australia, representing many distinguished clients like Neil Armfield, Gillian Armstrong, Baz Luhrmann, Louis Nowra and Wendy Harmer.

Liz Davies went to Cambridge University, graduated in Economics and became a civil servant and freelance journalist. Meeting up again much later in life, the pair discovered their mutual love of travel and embarked on the series of adventures that are the subjects of this book.
