Biography and Notes

Isobel is a former theatrical costumier, working in Covent Garden and for Dino de Laurentis on Flash Gordon before starting a family. For many years she was Editor of Poems in the Waiting Room, a task that was nowhere near as easy as it sounds. The publication had excessively stringent editorial guidelines; no one was to be upset. GPs are there to make people feel better and treatment should start in the waiting room!
