Lizzie’s first writing job was compiling the instructions for flat pack kitchens! She apologises for any confusion caused but it’s not as easy as you might think.
As a child she made up stories off the top of her head for her siblings, pretended at school that she couldn’t read – Janet and John just didn’t inspire her – whilst reading the Greek Legends and Grimms’ Fairy Tales at home.
It was an American author friend who suggested that Lizzie turned her hand to writing, so she did, drawing a great deal on her mother’s history; her mother was also a great story teller, plus she’d always had a great love of history, books and anything that stirred the imagination.
Lizzie currently lives with her husband on a 46ft sailing yacht, dividing her time between Bath and the Med. Sometimes they mix with the jet set and sometimes they just chill out in a bay with a computer, a warm breeze and a gin and tonic!
