About the Author

ALEXANDRA COLLARD returned to Cornwall after over 40 years when she had hiked the coast and fallen in love with the West Country. She wanted to revisit St. Ives, the village that had inspired her to write, The Swanhawk and As the Deer Longs. She had two main reasons for doing this. One was nostalgic. The other was to revisit the village in both her novels and make certain her memory had not cheated her. It was a wonderful surprise. Even though some things had changed, it was basically the same village she remembered from the early 70s.
The hotel where she had once stayed had been made into flats, and many of the pubs had changed ownership. St. Ives was no longer a fishing village, but there were still a few fishermen on Smeaton's pier spreading their nets. She could not find the area she had called The Craft Centre, and the artists she had known were no longer there. One of them had recently died.
As she spent a week in memory lane, another book was beginning to grow in her mind. This is the third book in what is now The St. Ives Trilogy.
Alexandra lives in Monterey, California, where she continues to write and acts in local musical theater productions.
