Meet the Author

Until Sylvia retired, she didn't have much time for writing, though she did attempt a modern "woman in danger" novel, which she worked on desultorily for about 20 years, then abandoned. Teaching full-time as vice principal of a large comprehensive sixth form college, while also running a house and a family, didn't really give her much time for writing. When she took it up again she found the heroine a complete wimp and the hero a pompous bore. On the whole it seemed better to leave them to their fate.

She never attempted to have anything published before she sent in her first historical romance to Mills & Boon, in the days when the series was called "Masquerade." She was somewhat flabbergasted — though absolutely delighted — when it was accepted. Perdita first appeared in 1991 and she now has seven "sisters," with a new brother and sister due to appear as part of the Steepwood Scandal series. In spite of this, Sylvia is still surprised at the idea of herself as a writer.

Sylvia and her husband, Simon, are retired and visit their small house in Normany whenever they can. They still talk in Caen of Sylvia's piercing shriek of delight when she first discovered one of her romances on sale in the "Continent" supermarket there.

    Fulfilling

    Sylvia Andrew brings a catch to your throat as you wait for the heroes to find each other amid a large cast of fascinating and fleshed out characters, witty dialogue and action I've been a big fan since the 1990s with her book titled Perdita
