Liz Hedgecock grew up
in London, England, did an English degree, and then took forever to start
writing. After several years working in the National Health Service, some short
stories crept into the world. A few even won prizes. Then the stories started to
grow longer... Now Liz travels between the nineteenth and twenty-first
centuries, murdering people. To be fair, she does usually clean up after
herself. Liz's reimaginings of Sherlock Holmes, her Pippa Parker cozy mystery
series, and her co-written Caster & Fleet Victorian mystery series are
available in ebook and paperback. Liz lives in Cheshire with her husband and
two sons, and when she's not writing or child-wrangling you can usually find
her reading, messing about on Twitter, or cooing over stuff in museums and art
galleries. That's her story, anyway, and she's sticking to it.

I would be happy to
deliver the following: - A writing workshop for primary school children - A
general talk/Q&A for children or adults (with or without a book reading) -
A session for adults on getting started in self-publishing, writing (and finishing)
a novel, writing a mystery, or creating a character arc for their protagonist I
can bring paperbacks if required.
If delivering a
workshop requiring preparation, I would charge £15 per hour of the workshop
(including any materials such as worksheets). For an author talk/Q&A type
event I would charge £10 per hour of the event.
I would require
travel expenses from Lymm; either reimbursement of public transport expenses or
a mileage rate of 11p per mile.
