Product description

About the Author

Lesley Hayes was born in London, in 1948, and started writing almost as soon as she could talk. Her first story was published when she won a literary competition at the age of 13. Between 1966 and 1992 she was regularly and prolifically published in literary and women's magazines, writing stories, serials and articles, and in 1986 had a novel published called 'Keeping Secrets'. For the following two years she had a weekly slot on BBC Radio Oxford reading her short stories. Her son and daughter, born respectively in 1969 and 1971, helped her throughout these years to keep her feet on the ground and her sense of humour alive and well and occasionally kicking. In 1990 she came to the conclusion that continuing to write about the fascinating vagaries of the human condition just wouldn't be enough, and for the next four years she trained to become an integrative psychotherapist. Her long and successful career as a psychotherapist over the ensuing years took her away from fiction writing, but was a fork in the road she never once regretted, and she used many of same creative skills and insights. During the past five years she has given in gracefully to the compelling urge to write fiction again, and has so far published three novels: 'The Drowned Phoenician Sailor', 'A Field Beyond Time', and 'Round Robin'. All are available on kindle, along with four collections of short stories: 'Oxford Marmalade', 'The Oscar Dossier', 'Without a Safety Net', and the aptly named 'Not Like Other People.' As you might expect, now that the genie has once again escaped from the bottle, more will soon follow.
