Deborah Lawrenson Book and Novel

Deborah Lawrenson - Author

Deborah Lawrenson was our Guest Editor in August 2011 - click here - to see the books that inspired her writing.

Deborah Lawrenson spent her childhood moving around the world with diplomatic service parents, from Kuwait to China, Belgium, Luxembourg and Singapore. She graduated from Cambridge University and worked as a journalist in London. She is the author of five previous novels, including The Art of Falling, chosen for the prestigious WHSmith Fresh Talent promotion, and Songs of Blue and Gold, inspired by the life of writer-traveller Lawrence Durrell.

Deborah is married with a daughter, and lives in Kent. The family spends as much time as possible at a crumbling hamlet in Provence, France, which is the atmospheric setting for The Lantern.

If you like Deborah Lawrenson you might also like to read books by Douglas Kennedy, Kate Mosse and Sebastian Faulks.
