About Rosemary Hawley Jarman

Best selling author both in the UK and the North America, Rosemary Hawley Jarman was born in Worcester. She lived most of her time in Worcestershire at Callow End, between Worcester and Upton on Severn. She began to write for pleasure, and followed a very real and valid obsession with the character of King Richard III. With no thought of publication she completed a novel showing the King in his true colours, away from Tudor and Shakespearian propaganda. The book was taken up almost accidentally by an agent, and within six weeks a contract for publication and four other novels was signed with HarperCollins. The first novel We Speak No Treason was awarded The Silver Quill, a prestigious Author's Club Award, and sold out its first print of 30,000 copies within seven days. We Speak No Treason was followed by The King's Grey Mare, Crown in Candlelight and The Courts of Illusion.show more
