Things sort of changed then, so here I am. Great to be with you all and I’m especially pleased to introduce Liz Martinson. Liz came to writing late in life and has had the happiest childhood and married life ever. I talked to her about this and she thinks growing up and living in the countryside has fuelled her sense of adventure, and love and knowledge of the countryside, all of which feature in her books. When she met her husband, she reckons her SAS course began and was compounded by having twin sons who both turned out to be as adventurous as their parents! Liz used to teach and finished her career working with special needs children. She’s done a creative writing course with Lancaster University, too. Loves cats, photography, reading, being outdoors, exploring, and… wait for it… triking.

But if Anna thinks she’s in charge of anything that I do, she really needs to reconsider. Look, she has enough on her hands with two little kids, a rescue dog, and her idiot cat. She doesn’t need to be in charge of anybody else, especially the hot guys she’s imagining.
