With total sales of over 1.6 million (source: BookScan) to her name, Lyn Andrews is one of the UK's favourite saga authors.
Aunt Babsey considered herself a cut above her neighbours on Everton Ridge. For one thing she was trade . She taught her children to be respectable, and she ruled her family with a rod of iron. Fourteen-year-old Louisa was the only one who didn t quite fit in. With her mother dead and her father away at sea, she was becoming increasingly aware of the grinding poverty of the thirties. The tough conditions of Liverpool love, war, betrayal, death all made her determined to seek her own path, both in the man she loved, and the work which would eventually make her famous throughout the city as Liverpool Lou.
Lyn Andrews was born in Liverpool in 1944; her father Joseph was killed on D-Day just nine months later. Lyn was brought up in Liverpool and became a secretary before she married and gave birth to triplets. Once the children had gone to school Lyn began writing, and her first novel was quickly accepted for publication. She has since written over thirty books, many of them Sunday Times bestsellers.
Lyn lives on the Isle of Man, but spends many weeks of the year back on Merseyside, seeing her children and grandchildren.
