Author A to Z

After teaching her 1000th pupil, Lizzie retired to pursue her first love: writing. She joined the RNA/NWS and became Independent Member #2 in 2015.

Although much of her time is taken publicising her three novels, she is working hard on number four. Her biggest surprise is how popular a man in a kilt seems to be with readers. Thank goodness.

Lizzie is a founding member of indie publishing group – New Romantics Press and is building a reputation as a go-to speaker on the subject of self-publishing. Nice to know that all those years as a teacher haven’t gone to waste.

She lives in Leicestershire with her husband (aka Bongo Man) and a naughty parrot called Jasper.
