Hello, I’m USA Today bestseller, author Lizzie Page. Welcome to my website.
I grew up in a sea-side town in Essex, a commuter town, about forty miles East of London. I studied politics and international studies at Warwick University, then worked as a nanny in Paris and then as an English teacher in Tokyo for several years. On returning to England, I worked in various jobs including administration and marketing, and eventually did an MA in creative and life writing at Goldsmiths, University of London.
Husband Steve, my three children and Lenny the cockapoo all conspire to stop me writing.
I love escaping into fictional worlds especially historical fiction – I particularly love learning about the way women used to live in the twentieth century. My ears prick up when I hear of the achievements of forgotten women in the past and I am inspired almost daily. I like reading stories that make you think, smile and empathise and those are the kind of stories I want to write too.
