About Vivien Hampshire


Author Vivien Hampshire developed a fascination for cryptic crosswords by the age of ten, and has never looked back. She now cracks at least one puzzle every day (the more challenging and devious the better), collects and analyses some of the cleverest clues, and leads crossword workshops to help others learn to solve them. Vivien lives in Middlesex with her partner, an elderly cat, and far too many dictionaries.
