About the Author

Alice Lee Thornton didn't start writing until she'd already lived a full life. Born in 1938 in Ely, England, where her father was Precentor of the Cathedral, she grew up in Devon, Cornwall, Shropshire, and Somerset, and was educated at Christ's Hospital Girls' School in Hertford and the College of St. Matthias in Bristol.

After a career teaching English and Music, she spent several years managing a Bed and Breakfast, teaching piano lessons, and serving as chairman of the Suffolk and North Essex branch of The Incorporated Society of Musicians. Then, at the age of seventy-two, she transcribed and edited her mother's handwritten memoir. A vacation in Cornwall inspired her to write her first novel Angel, Sinner, Mermaid, Saint.

Married three times, Alice has three children, two sets of stepchildren, and four grandchildren. Now widowed, she lives in Somerset with her Labrador-Saluki dog, Guinness.
