I am Liz Mills - incredibly old, but (amazingly) still fully functional. I was born of gentle, loving parents in Southend-on-Sea in the county of Essex, England, famous for its pier, shingle beaches and seaweed. I now live in the euphemistically named Three Bridges, in West Sussex, with my writer fiancée Douglas.
My childhood was undistinguished: expelled from posh school for being dim, I found my level in the state secondary education system, emerging with just enough basic skills to enable me to get a job … then another job … then another … and so on. At various points in my life I married and divorced a few times, producing two children, who are now adults and whom I love.
Writing was always a hobby, followed intermittently, until I shook off the shackles of the capitalist slavery system and gratefully accepted retirement. I developed my writing skills by reading and analysing the work of others. From some, I learnt how to write, while others showed me the mistakes to avoid; I am grateful to all of them.
At the age of sixty, as retirement loomed, I reinvented myself. I threw off the mantle that had stifled me for my whole adult life, and discovered, inside, the person I should have been. That person is now Elizabeth Audrey Mills, chatelaine and author of three full-length novels for adults/young adults, and a science-fiction series for young teens.

This is a fantastic little book! Tapestry Capricorn is a cool shape-changing dimension-hopping feline secret agent - more or less 'nuff said! You can't get better than that, and it is well written, engaging and doesn't talk down to the reader. Well reccomended!

What a charming little fantasy, or is it? Still being an eight year old boy, at heart, I enjoyed this story immensely. It is totally engaging and I readily related to the plot as it reminded me of some of my own childhood dreams, or were they just dreams? You will thoroughly enjoy this story, unless you are just an old sour puss.
