Welcome to the second day of RRBC’s “Bethany Turner Pay It Forward” week. Each day I will introduce you to another amazing Indie author, and hopefully you’ll follow them on Twitter, LIKE them on Facebook, and visit their websites. It’s an awesome way to learn about some authors and books that you might otherwise never discover. Today, I have the pleasure of spotlighting Lizzie Chantree
Lizzie is an enthusiastic inventor, businesswoman and artist. She founded her first company at the age of 17 and has been creating products and driving her family mad ever since.
Lizzie appeared on Sky News, ITV Lunchtime News, This Morning, The Big Breakfast, BBC’s Worldwide Radio Service, amongst others for becoming one of Fair Play London’s Female Innovators.
Lizzie lives in Essex, with her gorgeous family and a very unusual dog. In between the school run and baking cakes (or burning them!), she sits in her rooftop studio daydreaming about gaps in the market and how she can fill them. Babe Driven is her first novel and she is currently working on her second.
“I don’t know if it is the same for everyone, but as a writer I’m constantly taking note of the things that are going on around me. I often scribble a record of things that inspire me and it can be something small, like an interesting stone on the beach, to something profound that someone says to another as I am walking past them in the street.
Sometimes these things can develop into an idea for a story, but every so often it is good just to sit down and enjoy finding or seeing something that makes the world seem incredible. We have so much technology at our fingertips to help us communicate with each other, but it is still the little things that mean so much.”
