About the Author

Carmen Reid

Carmen Reid was born and brought up in a chilly and windy corner of Scotland in the depths of the countryside. This may explain her lifelong phobia of cows and abiding interest in cities, department stores, books, the cinema and newspapers.

Fortunately her hobbies are cooking, cleaning, arguing about whose turn it is to walk the dog, clean the fish tank, take out the rubbish, do the laundry... and so on.
