Georgie Newbery is a flower farmer and artisan florist based at Common Farm Flowers, a smallholding in Somerset where she lives with her husband, artist Fabrizio Boccha, two very nice but noisy and generally quite feral children, and a relatively well-behaved border terrier. Her day job involves growing 250+ different varieties of cut flower and foliage, supplying 50+ weddings a year, and teaching lots of workshops on how to grow, cut, condition and arrange flowers from your garden.
In the secret hours between five and seven in the morning she tiptoes downstairs to drink tea and write gardening books and novels, relishing the quiet, and giving space on the page to the people who crowd the stories in her mind.
All Desires Known is Georgie’s first foray into the world of fiction.
