More About the Author

Lesley Mary Close was born in Oxford, England and lives in the Chiltern Hills in Amersham, Buckinghamshire. She had created the outlines of many books in her head before meeting the subject of her first, Heather Ritchie, and being inspired by her amazing pictorial rugs.
Lesley's second book, Assisted Dying: who makes the final decision?, includes the story of her brother John's death at Dignitas in 2003, case studies (written by Lesley) of other people's difficult deaths, and essays on a variety of aspects of the subject from a range of authors.
Lesley enjoyed writing her first biography so much that she is engaged upon the hugely enjoyable task of researching and writing another (but very different) biography. She and Heather have also looked at ideas for further books based on Heather's rugs.
Lesley has always enjoyed reading biographies, but that's where the clever reading ends: 'who/why dunnits' by the likes of Ruth Rendell, Barbara Vine, PD James and Peter Robinson have been her preferred reading for many years! In her fifties, she took up creative writing and found it very challenging. The first anthology of stories by the group she joined, Just Write, is available as an ebook on Amazon.
Also in her fifties, Lesley joined a Rock Choir and started taking singing exams. She enjoys walking (both with and without a geocaching element), cycling and cooking for friends.
In her 30s Lesley learned to tap dance: her late father and brother would want her to say 'but she kept falling in the sink' so, in their honour, she will do so!

3.0 out of 5 stars John's Final Journey 17 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have to admit that I was rather disappointed with this book. I know that Lesley chose to start at the end of John's life and then move backwards. For me, personally, this did not work - maybe it worked better for those who knew him.
I am a strong supporter of assisted death and feel that it could have had a greater impact had the book ended with his death.
I empathise with her and her family and salute her for writing her brother's story

5.0 out of 5 stars Knowing John. 19 Aug. 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I knew John for several years. He was a regular member of The Black Horse Folk Club in Great Linford, Milton Keynes. At that time, I was the club organiser and John would sing his allocation of three songs each week. I took over the duty of Organiser from Sue when she had a baby. I had been a regular for some time and would sing my three songs, too. He was a talented singer/songwriter.
