Liz Wainwright is a playwright and novelist whose website can be found at www.lizscript.co.uk
Liz first started writing when she was a young Mum with two small children. She entered a novel writing competition in a magazine - she didn't win, but it taught her to type.
".......My characters do most of the writing for me, they become voices in my head and take on a life of their own. They're no angels, and they get into the sort of relationship situations which fascinate me. They make me care about them; they make me cry, and they make me laugh. I hope they'll do the same for you."
