AT this difficult time when most of the shops are shut, one Devon author is offering to post copies of her books to readers – without leaving her home!

Liz Shakespeare says: "I have a post box in my front garden, so I can post a book to you or to one of your friends or relatives, while obeying the Stay At Home order!"

Liz lives at The Old Post Office in Littleham, North Devon. Although there is no longer a Post Office in her front room, the Royal Mail post box is still there.

She says: "If you need to send a birthday present, a get well present, or just want to escape into another world for a while, choose a book set in Devon from my website: or give me a ring on 01237 471165."

Liz Shakespeare has become well-known throughout the South West for the five books she has written, all of which are set in Devon.

Liz says: "My inspiration is the people, the history and the landscapes of Devon. The most topical of my books is ’Fever: A Story from a Devon Churchyard’ which tells the true story of a Devon village struggling to cope during an epidemic 150 years ago."

Also available is "The Turning of the Tide", a novel based on the true story of a young Clovelly mother confined in the Bideford Workhouse, "The Postman Poet" which tells the story of Devon man Edward Capern, "The Memory Be Green: An Oral History of a Devon Village and All Around The Year", a book of short stories set in Devon.

Liz can sign books and inscribe them for a special present on request. Books are priced from £7.99 - £9.99 and postage is free.
