Stephanie Varah

A budding writer from early childhood, Stephanie penned her first short story; ‘Alison and the Magic Skiping Rope’ (with one ‘p’!) at the tender age of six. If not busy writing stories or poems, Stephanie was immersed in Enid Blyton mysteries which fired her already lively imagination and kindled an enduring love of books.

Since escaping from a busy working life, Stephanie has realised a lifelong dream and written her debut novel ‘The Woodsman’. Inspired by a love of Nature and walking, ‘The Woodsman’, a tale of everyday magic, is steeped in legend and folklore.

Stephanie lives in a small hamlet on the Nottinghamshire border where she fulfils another passion by putting on live music in the tiny village hall. When not reading, she can usually be found dancing to her 1954 Wurlitzer jukebox or exploring wild places with her husband Andy and rescue whippet Stanley in their camper van.
