Lynda Collins is a 1960s teenager who dreams of a better life, and of being loved. Not much to ask, is it? Both wealthy Ellen Heywood and sbbish Sheila Stanworth think that Lynda, brought up in a run-down pub in the poorest part of Milfield, isn't good eugh to marry their son. Ellen forces her son, Daniel, to give up Lynda, but Dan's best friend, John Stanworth defies his Mother and marries the girl Sheila describes as 'a cheap imitation Marilyn Monroe with cooking skills'.
When people ask me where it all comes from, this writing, I tell them I have this special software - it's called 'my imagination'. There's reality and experience in the background though; for example, when I was young we lived in a run-down pub not unlike The Black Bull. I first started writing when I was a young Mum with two small children. I entered a novel writing competition in a magazine - I didn't win, but it taught me to type! My characters do most of the writing for me, they become voices in my head and take on a life of their own. They're no angels, and they get into the sort of relationship situations which fascinate me. They make me care about them; they make me cry, and they make me laugh. I hope they'll do the same for you. Visit Liz's web pages: www.lizscript.co.uk
