About the Author

Having left Cambridge armed with a science degree, Liz Fraser worked in TV, presenting shows such as BBC's Holiday and Channel 4's The Virtual Body. After the birth of her second child, she gave up work to become a full-time mother. Six months later, in desperate need of adult conversation and a creative outlet, she returned to work part-time. She is now a freelance writer and lives in Cambridge, in a house not quite as tidy as she'd like, with her husband and three children.
