L. E. Gartside

Lawrence Edward Gartside was born in Manchester in 1943, the younger son of an engineering draughtsman. As a young child, the author, with his family, moved to the healthier climate of the Cheshire coast.

He attended the local secondary modern and grammar schools, qualified as a teacher at Nottingham College of Education in 1965 and taught in a Wallasey primary school for almost thirty years. During that time he developed a deep interest in writing, after reading some of the classic novels of the Brontës and Thomas Hardy.

He took early retirement from teaching to devote himself to writing, especially novels of an historical and romantic aspect. The author loves reading novels of varied styles, listening to classical music and walking in the countryside with friends and his wife, Ann.
