Short biography
Amy Baumann (née Brown) was born in rural Shropshire in 1922. During the Second World War she served in the Women's Land Army and subsequently trained and worked as a teacher. In the late 1950s she settled in Formentera with her husband, the poet and historian Jack Beeching (1922–2001), and their two children, moving on to San Vicente in Ibiza several years later. She also wrote two adventure novels for children, Treasure in Devils' Bay (1962) and Schooner on the Rocks (1966), and translated various books from the Spanish, Dutch and German, including Alexander Exquemelin's The Buccaneers of America.

In the late 1970s she moved to Fife, where she worked for 10 years at the Scottish Fisheries Museum.
