About the author

Lorraine Turnbull

Lorraine Turnbull wanted to be a farmer since she was five years old.  After running a successful gardening business in Glasgow, Scotland, she uprooted herself and her family and moved to a run-down agriculturally tied bungalow in Cornwall.  She retrained as a land-based tutor and taught horticulture at both adult & further education level, whilst running a one acre smallholding.  After working as a Skills Co-ordinator for The Rural Business School, she started a profitable small craft cider business.
In 2014 she was recognised for her contribution to sustainable living by winning the Cornwall Sustainability Awards Best Individual category.
 After successfully removing the Agricultural Occupancy Condition on her home she relocated to France; where unsurprisingly, she continues to run a smallholding, when not writing. 
She currently has 3 books published and is writing no 4 & 5. Her hobbies include gardening and photography.
