Liz Hurley

Hailing from Norfolk, Liz Hurley started her working life as a Librarian, working across the country and finally settling in Cornwall. Deciding that she wanted more independence and challenges, she then set up her own bookshop and started writing. SCRIBBLES FROM THE EDGE and LOSING IT IN CORNWALL are collections of her column written for the Cornish Guardian.

She has gone on to publish A History of Mevagissey and is currently writing a collection of Cornish walking guides. A fictional series is also in progress.

She doesn’t have a muse but Harry and Agatha come close.


Liz is available for interviews and readings. For further details please get in touch.


Based in Mevagissey but happy to travel.
