Faith Mortimer; born in Manchester, England. Her childhood was spent on Royal Air Force camps around the Globe, kindling her lifelong enthusiasm for seeing new places and meeting new people. She attended Purbrook Grammar School in Hampshire but there was never enough time for study; life was for reading, writing, painting, amateur dramatics and sport! She left school with a handful of ‘O’ levels but a wealth of interests.
Faith's love with books began at age 4. Early favourites were those by Enid Blyton with Faith joining the Famous Five and Secret Seven on their many adventures. This love for books still remains. The mysteries and secrets of novels dance around the edges of Faith's mind often keeping her awake into the long hours of the night.
