Brother: Cornelius Cornwall Baxter, 2nd Baron Flint

My inspiration for creating Uncle Farfar:


After starting off my first novel with a cast of somewhat unpleasant characters in Grace's life, I realised I needed her to have an ally—someone in her corner to offset her miserable childhood. And what better than a kindly uncle who sneaks sweets into the nursery beneath the governess's nose!

His name, Uncle Farfar, is based on my own childhood experience of trying to pronounce my grandfather's name, Arthur.
