Elizabeth Steynor (formerly Toppin)
I am a transplanted American who has been a writer and editor, both freelance and a in a ‘proper job’ for many years. I have written about a number of different topics from real estate to fashion and finance to Blu-ray manufacturing and online technology.
Along the way I have also written about local history, when I developed a fascination and passion for weird and wonderful London street names and the even weirder and more wonderful stories and people behind them. What started as a hobby took on a life of its own and after time I had compiled enough information to fill a whole book on the subject.
Traditional publishers at the time (nearly two decades ago) did not believe that it was a topic that would interest readers and so I shelved the whole project for a while until the rise of the internet, the blog and the ebook provided what shows every sign of being perfect medium for this book.
I hope that this book will see the light of day before too much longer.
