About the author (2011)

Audrey Lush was born in 1925. Her parent's were publicans, running a village pub in Dorset called 'The Hops and Barleycorn'. Later, her first book called 'Hops and Barley' was based on her childhood experiences at the pub. Audrey's Father farmed the land around the pub and her Mother made butter, which was sold along with the milk and other produce grown on the farm at the shop which was part of the pub. When Audrey was eight, she moved with her parent's across the border into Hampshire, where her parent's ran a large farm. She lived there until she married into a local farming family. She has three children. Audrey, always full of humour and fun produced variety shows that toured local hospitals and care homes, all the money raised went to local charities. Many of the comedy sketches written by Audrey at that time are retold in her books. She was involved with this for about thirty years. Painting was Audrey's hobby and her artwork was given as gifts to friends and family who live around the world. During the last twenty years, impaired vision has altered her life, she could no longer paint, so started to write. Audrey is an inspiration to others with her disability. She says she owes much gratitude to her friend who has helped her to put her thoughts into writing and achieving her ambition.
