About the author
Alex Pankhurst describes herself as a Very Ordinary Old Bird, adding,’VOOBs like me don’t take easily to Twitter, FaceBook or YouTube, and we keep hold of our privacy like skirt-clutching dowagers in a high wind. I live a very quiet life in Constable Country, East Anglia. (For the far-flung, that’s the bulge sticking out on the east side of England, a land of rivers, estuaries and gentle countryside, part of it made famous by the paintings of John Constable.) Both Scoffing the Primroses, and a previous novel, Art and the Revolutionary Human Fruit Machine.’ Her aim is to write stories that readers will really enjoy. To make them feel better at the end of it than they did at the beginning, have a chuckle yet learn something along the way. She is also the author of Who Does Your Garden Grow?, which traces the background and stories behind much-loved garden plants.
