Pip Granger - shedworking novelist

Writers make up a sizeable proportion of shedworkers. Among their number is Pip Granger, award-winning author
of the 'Soho'series of novels set in the 1940s and 1950s (her early childhood was spent in the back seat of a light aircraft as her father smuggled brandy, tobacco and books across the English Channel to be sold in 1950s Soho where she lived above The Two Is Cafe in Old Compton Street). All Pip’s books but the first were written in a shed in the wildlife garden she has created. Thanks to Philip Johnson for the alert.
