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 in Central and Local Government policy and finance and as a Journalist. 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.
