Beezy Marsh is an award-winning journalist, who has spent more than 20 years making the headlines in newspapers including The Daily Mail and The Sunday Times. She is married, with two young sons, and lives in Oxfordshire with a never-ending pile of laundry. She is also a karate black belt. This doesn't help much with the laundry though. This was never going to be enough for a girl from Hartlepool, whose primary school teacher told her to give up her dream of becoming a poet and concentrate on being a nurse instead. Beezy is also a novelist and biographer, with family at the heart of everything she writes - whether it is the life and times of a gangland criminal, or a downtrodden mother's attempt to find the key to lasting romance. Her first novel, Mr Make Believe will be published by Ipso Books in April 2017.
