About Kathleen Winsor

Kathleen Winsor was born in 1919. She became fascinated with Charles II and his immoral court after reading her first husband's thesis on the subject. Five years and much research later, she wrote FOREVER AMBER. It was a sensation, selling over 2 million copies in hardback, and was banned in Boston. It outsold almost every other book of the decade and became a bestseller in 16 countries. Kathleen Winsor lives in New York.
