   Writers: Beth Webb (England)  
  About the author  

Beth Webb grew up in Farnborough in Hampshire, wishing she lived in the country, but watching the London overspill gradually eat away the fields and green areas around where she lived. This, and the fact she was a bit of a 'loner', helped to turn her into a dreamer, someone who always could pretend and imagine a world that was just as real as the everyday one, but considerably more interesting.

Her favourite book was undoubtedly 'The Tanglewood Tales' by Nigel Hawthorne. This little book inspired her life-long fascination with myths and legends. She also loved Rudyard Kipling's 'The Just So Stories,' they intruiged her because of Kipling's extraordinary use of the English language, as well as a wonderfully humorous way of looking at why things as 'just so'.

Beth loves the idea that there are other energies and influences to be reckoned with beyond the obvious. For her, a good story has to include a means of finding either a wise or supernatural slant to a practical problem. She hates peanuts and slugs and loves interesting salads and laughter.
