About the Author

Liz Lenton was born in 1937 and grew up in wartime suburban London. After the war she went to a convent school in Belgium, shortly before spending 2 years with her parents in 'British West Africa', where she did not attend school, but sometimes submitted to home tuition by her father, aided by a PNEU correspondence course.

On returning to the UK she went to a PNEU day school before becoming a border at Dr William's School in North Wales for three years. Later, she transferred to a pre-medical course at an Essex Technical college. Her undergraduate medical education was completed at St Andrews University before the split from Dundee, so she undertook the clinical part of her studies there.

During her penultimate University year, Liz became the first woman RAF Medical Cadet, so on completing her pre-registration house jobs at NHS hospitals, she served a total of eight years as an RAF (not WRAF) Medical Officer.

Her first RAF posting took her to Malta, where she met Stewart, a pilot, who later became her husband. After the RAF Liz became a country GP, and Stewart, a civilian airline Captain.

They retired to Plymouth where Stewart joined the National Coast Watch Institution (NCI), and Liz started using her training in Christian counselling. Stewart photographed fishing boats to be used by the NCI for identification purposes, but Falmouth Maritime museum persuaded him to publish this unique photographic record. Liz helped him turn it into three books: 'The Fishing Boats and Ports' of Cornwall, Devon and Wales.

When Liz was told that she had dry Age Related macular degeneration - a blinding condition for which there was no treatment - she wrote her own book to give hope to others, describing how she eventually found a pioneering surgical treatment that restored her vision.
