About the Author
Born and raised in London, England, I left university armed with a fairly good English Literature degree some years ago and with no clear idea of a profession, but the certainty that, although I do love children and can't wait to be a mother myself, I have less than no sense of natural authority (not even hamsters obey me) and therefore that I would make a terrible schoolteacher. So I've had a variety of little jobs, while preserving some time for writing. I also have a bone-deep interest in military history, particularly the horrors of the First World War and American Civil War, and the heroics of the Battle of Britain. I write for the newsletter of a local aircraft museum and am often to be found rescuing long lost war graves from ivy and bindweed in cemeteries all over Kent, where I live very happily with my husband. 'A Man Like Alice' is the second of my unpublished novels and the first we have e-published.
A Man Like Alice
Julia is a kindly London school-teacher whose little world is rattled by a visit to an overgrown graveyard and the discovery that she really should have paid more attention to her own history lessons. The Battle of Britain will be as vital to Julia as it was to her country, two generations before, and will take her all the way to New Zealand before that which she's supposed to find is found.
