Carole Payne

Born into a large and very traditional Roman Catholic family in Forest Gate, London in 1950, classically educated at a strict Ursuline Convent School and City University, Carole Payne was an unusual and imaginative child. Her life was shaped by global events and chance encounters with interesting, and famous, characters. The swinging sixties scene, music, arts and youth revolution had a massive impact on her, as did her early first and only true love. She decided to write down her memories of this early life for her grandchildren and it turned into a bit of a saga. So this is Part One – A Forest Gate Girl, taking us up to her marriage in 1971. Part two continues her varied career and the adventures which never stop to the present day. Now with family scattered all over the world, as a grandmother with time on her hands, Carole Payne Berry lives and writes in deepest Wiltshire.
