About the Author
Lizzy Lloyd In postwar Surrey, families dreamed away the horrors of war in wooded hills and meadows and escaped into fantasy and creativity. Lizzy Lloyd grew up in this environment, where reality slipped into fantasy so easily and art and poetry and literature were the warp and weft of everyday living. The 1960s enthused youngsters into believing everything was possible, and the rise of the working-class hero in fashion, photography, interior design, and films led her to, first, art school then a career in haut couture. Ever restless, she diverted into photo editing and finally social care while moving around the country. In 1980 she settled in Tewkesbury, where the genius loci is very strong. In 1982, The Long Man was conceived and several other books inspired by that region. In the last twenty years, she has produced more stories of the interface between the psyche and the heart and the thin veneer between one period in history and another.
