9780099553281: Georgette Heyer Biography

The ground-breaking biography of one of Britain's best-loved and best-selling novelists.

Georgette Heyer remains an enduring international bestseller, read and loved by four generations of readers and extolled by today's bestselling authors. Despite her enormous popularity she never gave an interview or appeared in public. Georgette Heyer wrote her first novel, The Black Moth, when she was seventeen in order to amuse her convalescent brother. It was published in 1921 to instant success and it has never been out of print.

A phenomenon even in her own lifetime, to this day she is the undisputed queen of regency romance.

During ten years of research into Georgette Heyer's life and writing, Jennifer Kloester has had unlimited access to Heyer's notebooks and private papers and the Heyer family records, and exclusive access to several untapped archives of Heyer's early letters.

Review:

"An engaging portrait of a novelist beloved of four generations. A must for those wishing to explore the life of the queen of Regency romance." ( Daily Express, 4/5 stars)

"All lovers of the great Heyer, inventor of the Regency Romance, will love this superb biography of a very private woman." ( Saga magazine)

"Jennifer Kloester’s book is an exhaustive and detailed biography which is quite as gripping as The Regency Buck or The Corinthian. Recognition at last." ( Country Life)

"This should be read on creative-writing courses everywhere." ( Sunday Times)

"A compelling study of a fascinating life. Jennifer Kloester has opened the door on one of the most private literary icons of the past century, one whose works made and continue to make a lasting impression on readers worldwide. Meticulously researched and supported, Kloester's study is both sympathetic and exact, and paints a finely detailed portrait of the woman behind the books. An engaging, intriguing, absorbing read - history is rarely this entertaining!" (Stephanie Laurens, #1 New York Times bestselling historical romance author)
