Ann Langley loves to write. Her pen name, Ann Barton Langley includes Barton, her maiden name, which is a big part of who she is.
She has written poetry for as long as she can remember, but on retiring as a Dental Nurse, she decided to go to a creative writing class, and joined a local group.
One of her first challenges was to write a short story based on a piece of poetry. She started writing and couldn’t stop, and so her first novel, Millie’s Lyme, was born. Millie’s Lyme is set in and around Lyme Regis, Dorset.
She has since written a number of short stories and a host of poetry - several of which have been published, and the rest are in the process of being collated into a small book which she hopes to publish at a later date. Somewhere amidst this she wrote the sequel to Millie’s Lyme, which will be published in 2012.
Although Ann was born and brought up in Somerset, the Dorset coast is one of her favourite areas.

The latest example was an order that was supposed to arrive last Friday. It was delivered to a shop seven miles away. The shop reported the problem to both Bertrams and Yodel.
The situation was not helped by the fact that the tracking link that was supplied by Bertrams was out of date which made it look as if Yodel had not updated their tracking information. It was only later in the day that I realised that there had been a problem when I inputted the parcel number directly on Yodel's site.
I contacted Bertrams by phone and Yodel by email. To date, I've had no response from either.

I tried viewing the 'Seller Connection' forum this morning and it is still unavailable this afternoon. I can still read Amazon's announcements but there is no mention of this problem. The Amazon.com forums are still available.
