Stephanie Butland is the author of seven novels, including the beloved bookshop tale Lost for Words, as well as The Curious Heart Of Ailsa Rae and The Woman In The Photograph. Her first two books were memoirs of her dance with cancer.
Stephanie lives near the sea in the north-east of England, with her husband Alan and Harris the greyhound. She writes in a studio at the bottom of her garden. For fun, she reads, knits, bakes, walks, and goes to the cinema and theatre. Stephanie loves to talk books and meet readers, and is an occasional performance poet.
