Isobel Mills, CBE

24th October 2018 - Jenny Moscrop

Isobel previously worked as a Civil Servant in the now no more Government Office for Yorkshire and the Humber, responsible for getting money into the region to tackle disadvantage and deprivation. This included delivering programmes into the most left behind parts of the region and running European Funds.

She has written five novels since her retirement but says she doesn’t take rejection well, so these have only been read by her husband and son.

Isobel has a pet ginger cat called Douglas.
