You don't need to show your birth certificate...

A few days ago I wrote about 21 year old Ivan Brett getting a three book deal. The Great Lie is Myrrha Stanford-Smith's first novel.  Set in 16th century London, it follows the adventures of Nick, an aristocratic teenage runaway, who joins a troupe of travelling players and gets mixed up in the rivalry between Shakespeare and Marlow.
Myrrha was born in Brighton and is now living in Holyhead, North Wales where she is a director in a repertory company. 

Myrrha has a three book deal.
Myrrha is 82.
