Meet the Author




Sara Craven shares her somerset home with a West Highland white terrier called Berlie Wooster, several thousand books, and an amazing video collection.

When she's not writing, she likes to travel in Europe, eat in good restaurants, and go to the theater, but reading will always be her greatest passion.

Since the birth of her twin grandchildren, she is a regular visitor to New York City, where the little tots live.




Daphne Clair, aka Laurey Bright, lives on a farmlet in beautiful New Zealand with her Dutch-born husband. Together they raised five wonderful, talented children, one of them an orphan from Hong Kong. She has written almost seventy romance novels for Harlequin lines. As Daphne de Jong she has published many short stories and a historical novel, both critically acclaimed in her homeland. She has won the prestigious Katherine Mansfield Short Story Award, has been a Rita finalist and has either finaled or won in other contests in several writing fields. Her online newsletter is issued once a month to six weeks, and is sent by email to subscribers (free). One of the most visited features on her site is The Writing Class where questions are answered about all aspects of writing.

She enjoys passing on the knowledge she's gained in many years of writing, and runs courses for romance writers at her large country home.




Christina Hollis was born a few miles from Georgian Bath in England. She has been writing from the moment she picked up a pencil and her first book was a few sentences about three puppies that lived in a basket. It was written at the age of three!

She left school at sixteen. Working as a 'gopher' in the marketing department of a financial institution was an experience that opened her eyes to life outside of sleepy Somerset. She met her husband on a blind date and love at first sight led to marriage within months. When a play she wrote in her spare time was short-listed for a national award, her husband suggested she try writing full-time.

Over the next few years, Christina wrote half a dozen full-length novels, did a lot of non-fiction work for magazines and had two lovely children. In the year 2000, she joined a college course in creative writing to update her skills. It was tutored by the prize-winning Welsh poet Paul Groves, who suggested she try writing short stories. Various examples of these went on to be broadcast by the BBC and achieved success in several national competitions and magazines.

Christina's first modern romance, The Italian Billionaire's Virgin, began life as a two-thousand-word holiday assignment for her writing course. Urged to send it to Mills and Boon by her fellow students, her thrill at being invited to send in a completed manuscript was only topped by the experience of receiving THE letter--acceptance! It arrived on her young son's birthday, making it a double celebration the family will never forget.

Christina's hobbies include cooking and gardening and she always has a book in hand. Romances are a favourite, as they are in such contrast with raising a family in a crumbling old cottage. Married to the most romantic man in the world, Christina enjoys every aspect of the subject. Romance can be as simple as a cup of tea in bed, but grand gestures such as a restaurant dinner add spice to the mix.

Christina thinks writing must be the best job in the world. There really is nothing like seeing the pictures in her head become words on a page. The chance to explore relationships and the way people overcome the problems that life throws at them means that there is always some new avenue to investigate.




Margaret is a hopeless romantic who loves writing. She falls in love with every one of her heroes and likes to boast about how many "love affairs" she's had.

It was never her ambition to become a writer, although she always loved reading, even to the extent of reading comics out loud to her twin brother when she was eight years old. In fact, her only writing experience was in letters to various pen pals around the world. She has, unfortunately, lost touch with them now and often wonders whether any of them have ever discovered that her chatty letters were the forerunner to her writing career.

She was born in Staffordshire, England, and has remained within the country all of her life. She left school to become a secretary, taking a break to have her two children, Adrian and Tina. Once they were at school she started back to work and planned her further career by becoming a bilingual secretary. Unfortunately, she couldn't speak any languages other than her native English, so she began evening classes. It was at this time that she got the idea for a romantic short story-- to this day she doesn't know where the idea came from or why, but she thanks her lucky stars because it kick-started her career.

Margaret, and her mother before her, had always read Mills & Boon romance novels, and to actually be writing one excited her beyond measure. Her first two submitted novels were accepted simultaneously, and now she has over sixty-five to her credit. When she looks at them lined up on her bookshelf she wonders how she has managed to write all those millions of words.

"My life began at forty" is another one of her favourite sayings because that is when her first book was published-- two-and-a-half years after she first set pen to paper (that first book was written long before she felt confident enough to send it off). Having those books accepted was the happiest and most exciting day of her life. She waltzed her husband around the room and their two children thought they'd gone mad, until they were told the good news.

Margaret gets so immersed in her writing that one day-- before she made writing her full-time career and did most of her writing at the office (!)-- her daughter phoned to ask whether she could come and meet her out of work. Margaret told her not to be silly because it was foggy. Her daughter said, "But it's sunny here." And when Margaret looked out of the window the sun was shining. Her hero and heroine were lost out in a sea of fog!

Before she became a successful author Margaret was extremely shy and found it difficult to talk to strangers. For research purposes she forced herself to speak to people from all walks of life and now says her shyness has gone forever-- to a certain degree. She is still happiest pouring her thoughts out on paper.
