Liz Trenow

Liz Trenow's latest novel is The Dressmaker of Draper's Lane, set in the fascinating world of silks and fashion in 18th century Spitalfields, East London. Her previous novels are The Last Telegram, The Silk Weaver (The Hidden Thread in the US), The Forgotten Seamstress, The Poppy Factory (All the Things We Lost in the US) and In Love and War. She has been published all over the world and in nine foreign languages. The Last Telegram was shortlisted for a UK national award and The Forgotten Seamstress was a New York Times best-seller.

The Dressmaker of Draper's Lane, along with several of Liz's other novels, was inspired by her own family heritage of silk weaving which spans three centuries. The company, still in the same family after 11 generations, is one of only three weaving silk commercially in the UK today. The Silk Weaver and its 'companion' novel The Dressmaker of Draper's Lane are set in the place and time where her family first began weaving

Liz is a former journalist who spent fifteen years on regional and national newspapers, and on BBC radio and television news, before turning her hand to fiction. She lives in East Anglia, UK, with her artist husband, and they have two grown up daughters.
