About Tessa Lorant

Tessa Lorant began her working life as a computer programmer, then married an author who encouraged her to write. She began to write on her hobby of knitting, publishing thirteen books on textile crafts as well as patenting two knitting aids. She is featured in Richard Rutt's seminal A History of Hand Knitting. After her husband died of cancer Tessa wrote, at his request, A Voice at Twilight, writing as Tessa Lorant Warburg. This looks at the experience of living - and dying - with the Big C. Tessa won the Oddfellows Social Concern Book Award for this- the prize was presented at the House of Commons. As family members kept telling her how like her husband the book sounded she thought she could try to use that skill to write fiction. Tessa has now published six suspense novels and a trilogy. She is working on a detective series - Proof Positive - and a book on wildflowers, as well as adapting more Victorian knitting patterns for the 21st Century.
