Carole Mortimer was born in England, the youngest of three children. She began writing in 1978, and has now written over one hundred and seventy books for Harlequin Mills and Boon(R). Carole has six sons, Matthew, Joshua, Timothy, Michael, David and Peter. She says, 'I'm happily married to Peter senior; we're best friends as well as lovers, which is probably the best recipe for a successful relationship. We live in a lovely part of England.'
A love of history drove Helen Dickson to writing and she spends hours in reference libraries researching her subject, which she thoroughly enjoys, but she realizes that it is a balance of imagination and the accuracy of research that makes a good story. In her spare time she enjoys being outdoors, reading, going to the movies and listening to music (especially classical). Helen lives on an arable farm in South Yorkshire, England, with her husband of over thirty years.show more
