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.

Interesting in many ways, though overly hagiographic (the young Georgette was talented and beautiful and fantastic in every way, etc etc). It does give some interesting insights into the process behind the novels, but not one to keep and re-read in the way I do the novels themselves. Read full review
