The Twisted Vine, Alex Martin's debut novel, is based on personal experience of picking grapes in the 1980s. Harvesting vines is like harvesting words - hard work but fun.
Alex Martin grew up in Wiltshire and its rich and ancient tapestry informs her next novel, Daffodils, which will be out soon.
She is also a qualified herbalist and aromatherapist (see www.gowerserenity.co.uk) She loves nature so much she relies on it for her health and happiness and dispenses its treasures to others. This does not pay well. Not in financial terms.
She has turned to her keyboard, her first love, for another source of income. She can mostly be found, scribbling or tapping away in her garden shed, indulging that passion, as the wind and rain lash at her little refuge.
