Florrie Palmer is One of the first British female singer-songwriters, Florrie’s songs have been recorded by many including Abba blonde Agnetha Faltskog, Manfred Mann, Mike Rutherford of Genesis, Elaine Paige and Sheena Easton. Her biggest hits were recorded by Sheena Easton who hit the number one spot in America for 6 weeks with 9-5 (Morning Train) which was also number one in fifteen other countries worldwide including Australia and Canada. This resulted in a platinum record and was followed by a number 12 with When He Shines which Sheena performed at the Royal Variety Performance in 1981.
In 1994, Florrie wrote a comic novel based on her experiences in the music business called Never Final Till it’s Vinyl. She has written The Madeira Effect, a short entertaining history of her eccentric family that is half American and half English with tales that include pioneers building railways in uncharted territories in Colorado and intermarrying with native Americans as well as English ancestors with more money than sense.
The Decoy was her first venture into crime fiction. Cliff Edge followed and she is currently writing the third due out next year. Having lived in various English counties as well as the south of France and Italy, Florrie now lives in Cambridge.
