Genre


Valerie Winifred Grosvenor, later Myer, was born in Lower Soudley in the Forest of Dean on 13 April 1935 to parents who were second cousins. The family lived in a cottage that apparently had no electricity, sanitation or running water, which, according to Sue Limb who wrote her obituary, led her to remark later in life that "The organic life isn't all it's cracked up to be."

After education at East Dean Grammar School she left to train as a librarian in Gloucester. As a freelance she also wrote articles for the 'Forest of Dean Mercury', a newspaper that eventually employed her as a fully fledged reporter.

In 1958 she moved to the 'Dartford Chronicle' and also undertook editorial work for the women's magazines, 'Housewife' and 'Flair'.
