Lesley Mary Close is the author of two conventionally published non-fiction books and chair/editor-in-chief of a self-published creative writing group. When her job as an administrator in an engineering company was made redundant in November 2016, she invested some of her payoff in a training course to be a funeral celebrant. With the entirely new outlook on life that course gave her, Lesley looks forward to working for herself in the service of others until she is way past retirement age!
Lesley is the youngest of three and was born nine years after her brother, John. He was 54 when he was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease in March 2001 and he died, with help from Dignitas, in May 2003
