Listen to Fancy Pants on a Lighthouse!
Eastbourne author Elizabeth Wright was interviewed last night by with well-known radio presenter, Michael Sargent, host of ‘Write to be Heard’, from Turquoise Radio, Louisville, Kentucky, USA.
Belle Tout is a hardback, coffee table style book on the history of the famous lighthouse, with over 100 photographs some dating back over 100 years. Elizabeth spent over twenty years on the research for this book, and it shows in the quality of the writing and the knowledge revealed. A fascinating insight into Sussex history.
Fancy Pants took even longer to research, as it is her autobiography, a story of a modern mum growing up in Eastbourne, business building and failing, the search for love, children, all told with a dry wit that keeps you chuckling. Elizabeth was very well known in Britain for her knowledge about animals - her business was a pet shop - and for four years her Amazon Green Parrot Lulu won the best talking bird competition at the National Bird Show, in London.
In the evening of 20th May 2014 her interview with well-known radio presenter, Michael Sargent, host of ‘Write to be Heard’, from Turquoise Radio, Louisville, Kentucky, USA, was aired. This is an exclusive on-line weekly books and literary show, by writers for writers, brought to listeners in 200 countries in association with the University of Louisville Film and Media Department. Michael Sargent “brings aspiring authors who have real talent to the public eye, to talk about their work, their inspiration and their journey. The programme “attracts a huge following world wide”.
In the recorded interview Elizabeth and Michael talked about her writing life, and her books, with special mention and reading from her humorous autobiography, ‘From Fancy Pants to Getting There.’ He said, “When I picked it up, I really did not want to put it down, I found it engaging, I found it funny, I found it sexy, and courageous and inspiring. I read it from cover to cover” and further commented that “Elizabeth Wright forges her own personal story of heartbreak and hard luck into an open and honest romp through her most trying (and occasionally intimate) adventures. Can’t wait until the next book is done!”
