Ada Langton lives with her husband, Pete, and her eldest daughter, Indea. Together they enjoy binge TV, dry martinis and all kinds of cheese. Ada has four other children and she hopes they all find someone who will support them to be all they aspire to be. Ada loves to hide away and write whenever she can - as long as there is a good supply of hot darjeeling tea.
She was a winner of the Varuna-HarperCollins Manuscript Award, writes a sometimes blog and published two books Sunday Best and After Before Time under the name Robbi Neal. She adopted the pen-name Ada Langton for her fiction. She chose Ada in memory of her great-grandmother who tragically died of cancer aged only forty-five, and Langton in memory of her much-loved grandfather who was the inspiration for Reuben in this novel.
