She was married to Ralph Izzard, a Daily Mail Middle East correspondent, circa 1948 in Delhi until his death in 1992. They had four children. On 4 February 2004, Izzard died in Royal Tunbridge Wells in England.


She was asked by her publishers John Murray to write a biography on the explorer Freya Stark. Izzard met Stark in the small Italian town of Asolo and noticed accounts of her life were fabricated. This caused Izzard to extensively investigate Stark further and revealed further information on the explorer. When the Murray family reviewed the manuscript, they asked Izzard to make alterations to it since it showed Stark, also a John Murray author, in a negative light. Izzard refused to make any changes whatsoever. The book was published by Hodder & Stoughton in 1993 and was received negatively by enthusiasts of Stark and got mixed comments from reviewers.


She co-authored her first book, Smelling The Breezes, with her husband Ralph Izzard in 1959, and was republished as A Walk in the Mountains in the United States the following year. The book Izzard wrote was about the two-month 300 mi (480 km) camping trek she and her family took through the High Lebanon mountains by donkey in 1957. Izzard’s second book, A Private Life, followed in 1963. She detailed in the book her memories of the first seven years of her marriage to Ralph Izzard reporting on the Partition of India, and bringing up her family amongst the Egyptian revolution of 1952 and the conclusion of British rule in Cyprus in 1960. In 1969, she authored A Life of Dame Helen Gwynne Vaughan on a commission from her publishers. Ten years later, Izzard wrote, The Gulf: Arabian Western Approaches, which was a first-hand account of the rise of the nation-states Bahrain, Kuwait and the Emirates set against Saudi Arabia’s restrictive Wahabism as well as Iraqi and Iranian power when Anglo oil companies lost their grip on the region.


Molly Izzard (née Crutchleigh-Fitzpatrick; 1 August 1919 – 4 February 2004) was an English writer. She was the co-author of the book published in 1959 called Smelling The Breezes, which is about a camping trek she and her family took in the High Lebanon mountains. Izzard subsequently wrote A Private Life in 1963 on her private life at work. In 1969, she authored A Life of Dame Helen Gwynne Vaughan and The Gulf: Arabian Western Approaches on Middle Eastern events ten years later. Izzard’s final work was a controversial biography on the explorer Freya Stark which was published in 1993.

On 1 August 1919, Izzard was born Molly Crutchleigh-Fitzpatrick, in Cornwall, England. Her father was of Anglo-Indian stock, and exited Calcutta to work on a British Guiana sugar plantation. Following the separation of her parents, Izzard accompanied her father to India. She attended convents in Cherbourg and Darjeeling. After the death of her father in a car accident, she moved back to Britain and was educated at Dollar Academy in Clackmannanshire before matriculating at a finishing school in Genoa. Izzard did not feel comfortable in such an environment and moved to Hungary to live with a aristocratic count and his family. Just before the Second World War, she again returned to Britain to join the First Aid Nursing Yeomanry as a driver before taking on intelligence duties ferrying important individuals across London for the following three years. Izzard also served under Sefton Delmer in the propaganda agency, the Political Warfare Executive.
