About the Author

Lizzie Lane was born and brought up in one of the toughest areas of Bristol, the eldest of three siblings who were all born before her parents got round to marrying. Her mother, who had endured both the depression and war years, was a natural born story teller, and it's from her telling of actual experiences of the tumultuous first half of the twentieth century, that Lizzie gets her inspiration. Lizzie put both cities and rat race behind her in 2012 and moved onto a boat, preferring to lead the simple life where she can write and watch the sun go down without interruption.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
