LBryceLesley Lodge…..Now lives on a smallholding in a rural village, bafflingly close to Luton, after many years working on regeneration projects in south London.

She grew up in the New Forest and worked for a racing stable, a palomino stud farm and a horse trainer before working as a journalist and then on Government policy and finance. Her long-time ride is Freddie, a hairy bay cob mare with a long moustache. (That’s not Freddie in the photo!).

Her other publications include the Luton Literary Prize winning Blues to Orange, a story about a farmer ruined by the foot and mouth outbreak, published in Junction 10, a collection of short stories. She has twice won prizes in the annual British National Short Screenplay Competition, is a Script Factory member and past Time Out and Jim Beam Whiskey Cult Film Buff of the Year. (Alas, the crate of Jm Beam that was part of the prize is long gone…)
