"Stop the world, I want to get off" - a catch-phrase from the sixties. We got off and this is how we did it.

Author Biography

Long before "Been there, done that" was the vogue, Elizabeth personified it. She is a sprinter rather than a marathon type. Whenever she either needs or would like to try something new she goes for it. Once she has done it to her own level of satisfaction she looks around for the next thing. In her time she has been a nurse, served in the W.R.A.F. and been a full time wife and mother. Later she lived the 'self-sufficiency' lifestyle, ran a catering business and attended Bible College. After College Elizabeth and her husband James had a three fold ministry in Mid Wales. James as Pastor of Pendref Chapel and together running a Christian Bookshop and their home 'Plas yn Dre' as a small Christian Guesthouse As a Pastor's wife Elizabeth has seen her role as 'helpmeet' and 'sounding board' for ideas and discussion. She led groups and did counselling. She was a seminar leader, trainer and counsellor for 'Tell Wales' a National Evangelistic Campaign throughout Wales. She also found time to be a founder member of the Wholefood Co-operative, making and selling Soya products to its members. In 1990 the Lord called them both to South Africa to be used in the ministry of reconciliation where her particular ministries of hospitality and encouragement have been much used. They returned to South Wales in June 2001. There they became involved in the setting up of a Community Association and a Community Centre. In 2005 the Lord moved them on yet again and they are now settled in Co Sligo Ireland where they both feel they have come home. They are now writing and enjoying a more laid back lifestyle. When not writing she enjoys cooking for friends and the ensuing discussions around the table. Reading, listening to classical music and doing jigsaws and Sudoku with James.
