About the author

My interest in lighthouses stems back from family holidays; the first lighthouse I ever visited was South Stack Lighthouse in Anglesey; I also remember visiting Start Point Lighthouse in Devon, aged 12.

My first edition of Lighthouse Accommodation Britain and Worldwide was published in 1999, after I had stayed at Great Orme’s Head Lighthouse in North Wales, and I have produced a number of updates since then.

I am an active member of the Association of Lighthouse Keepers, and Secretary of Happisburgh Lighthouse Trust in Norfolk, where I live with my husband Patrick Tubby – we were married at Nash Point Lighthouse in Wales in 2009, staying in one of the lighthouse cottages for our honeymoon, of course!
