After many years of thinking 'I could be a published writer' I'm finally getting round to actually being one. What genre? Travel writing, history, why I'm even working on a piece of fiction.
I live in Birmingham, UK with my 2 daughters (one at university during term time) and in my day job I'm a Sustainability Consultant.
My personal book collection includes politics, cooking, gardening, and as much Nordic crime fiction as I can get my hands on.
Favourite books ever? My Family and Other Animals by Gerald Durrell, which I read as a teenager and eventually inspired me to visit Corfu; and Not Now, Bernard by David McKee, which I read to my children and will one day read to my grandchildren.

Lucie Aubrac - the Schoolteacher who fought the Gestapo
by Phil Beardmore
Never before fully told in English, this is the inspiring biography of Lucie Aubrac, one of the leaders of the French Resistance in Lyon. A true love story involving sabotage, subterfuge and prison escapes, it provides a living example of boundless courage in the face of Nazi terror.
