Facebook: Beryl Matthews
Beryl Matthews was born in London but now lives in Hampshire. She grew up in a family of enthusiastic readers, and books have always been a very important part of her life.
As a young girl her ambition was to become a professional singer, but lack of funds drove her into an office, where she worked her way up from tea-girl to credit controller. Her hobbies are writing, reading, swimming and golf.
She published her first book, The Open Door, at the age of 71 after joining a writers’ group and has since written over twenty novels. Her hobbies include travelling, swimming and golf but writing is her number one priority.
