She has had a mixed career history: PR to an antiques' dealer, sales assistant, professional cook, kindergarten teacher at Garden House School, volunteer teacher for various charities in India and Mauritius. She has two children, Rebecca and Benjamin, and is currently semi-retired and living peacefully with slightly overweight border terrier, Marley Mortimer, in London.
April 2014 Non-Fiction Book of the Month. After the bestselling Dear Lupin, Charlie Mortimer’s sister Louise allows us once again to revel in Roger Mortimer’s prose, the stories of batty friends and relations, the incontinent dogs, and the admonishments of an exasperated father. Louise was not such a worry as brother Charlie but all the same managed to turn quite a few parental hairs white engendering the same witty dressing downs. Roger Mortimer’s love of detail and absurdity is ever-present, his appreciation of the eccentricity around him makes a nonsense of the politically correct - lovely letters that any child would treasure.
