Lin Treadgold studied a creative writing course with the University of Leeds, but due to running a business full time she was unable to write a novel. Lin began as a driving instructor and after twelve years of teaching, she moved on to a higher training course to train the instructors and spent 25 years mentoring and teaching. After several years working in the north east of England, she retired early from her teaching job and moved to The Netherlands to join her husband for his work. Eventually, with more time to spare, she began to write stories and poetry but never thought that one day she could be a published author. After early retirement she had the opportunity to write that all-important book which had been sitting in a cupboard, handwritten, and forlorn. Lin now has three other books in progress and her second novel, The Tanglewood Affair is due for publication in August 2018 with a further work in progress ‘Harold The Good Soldier.’ a wartime story inspired by WWII letters from a prisoner of war camp.
Lin now lives in Devon and is a member of the Romantic Novelists’ Association. She is the group organiser and is always happy to see new members in the group.

GOODBYE HENRIETTA STREET 2nd edition published by Silverwood Books.
‘Goodbye Henrietta Street’ is set in Whitby in Yorkshire and on the Isles of Scilly in Cornwall. When Pippa Lambton leaves her estranged husband and her home for the islands to find respite from a sad loss, she discovers more than she bargained for. Her life is turned upside down again, but this time she has Sven on her side, and perhaps the man she met at the cemetery, back home, was right. ‘Maybe you’ll find direction around the corner where it’s been waiting to meet you.’ he’d said. Pippa is now faced with a dilemma and what happened to her husband and friends whilst she was away?
The story twists around the scenery and romance of The Isles of Scilly in Cornwall. . Update: This book is now available on Amazon with the revised edition from March 2015.
