Her first book, Miller's Collecting Fashion and Accessories, was followed by the first of several telling the previously untold stories of women in WW2.

Mike Brown's career as an author began while teaching history in London -- it was research for the classroom that grew into his first book, 'Put That Light Out', in 1999. Since then, he has written 14 more books, and collaborated on a further nine. His television credits include Time Team and Timewatch and, like Carol, he gives talks to specialist and general audiences of all ages. Themes include the Home Front in World War Two, evacuees and the lives of children in WW2, and the Spanish Civil War.
