Meet the Author




Lucy Gordon was born in England, where she still lives with her Italian husband. She wanted to be a writer all her life, and began by working on a British women's magazine. As a features writer, she gained a wide variety of experience.

She interviewed some of the world's most attractive and interesting men, including Warren Beatty, Richard Chamberlain, Charlton Heston, Sir Roger Moore, Sir Alec Guiness.

Single life was so enjoyable that she put marriage, and even romance, on the back burner, while she went about the world having a great time. Then, while on vacation in Venice, she met a tall, dark handsome Venetian, who changed all her ideas in a moment, and proposed on the second day. Three months later they were married--and still are. Her friends said a whirlwind romance would never last, but so far it's lasted nearly 30 years.

Lucy now claims to be an expert on one particular subject. Italian men are the most romantic in the world. They are also the best cooks.

After 13 years on the magazine Lucy decided that it was now or never if she was ever going to write that novel. So she wrote Legacy of Fire which became a Silhouette Special Edition, followed by another, Enchantment in Venice.

Then she did something crazy--gave up her job. Since then she has concentrated entirely on writing romances for Silhouette and Harlequin. Rico's Secret Child, out in March 2000, will be her 50th book.

A few years ago she and her husband returned to Venice and lived there for a couple of years. This proved the perfect base for exploring the rest of Italy, and she has given many of her books Italian settings: Venice (of course), Rome, Florence, Milan, Sicily, Tuscany. She has also used the Rhine in Germany for Song of the Lorelei, for which she won her first RITA Award, in 1991. Her second RITA came in 1998, with His Brother's Child, set in Rome.

Eventually Lucy and her husband returned to England, where they now live. So far her settings have been European and her heroes mainly Italian or English, but recently she branched out with Blood Brothers, a Silhouette Desire (July 2000) cowritten with Anne McAllister, about an English lord and a Montana cowboy who swap lives. This will be followed by For His Little Girl, a Silhouette Special Edition, set in L.A., with her first American hero.




Catherine George was born in a village on the Welsh-English border, where the public library featured largely in her life. Her mother, who looked upon literature as a basic necessity of life, fervently encouraged Catherine's passion for reading, little knowing it would one day motivate her daughter into writing her first novel.

At 18, Catherine met her husband, who after their marriage swept her off to Brazil, where he worked as Chief Engineer of a large gold-mining operation in the mountains of Minas Gerais, a setting which later provided a very popular background for several of Catherine's early novels.

Nine happy years passed there before the question of their small son's education decided their return to Britain.

Not long afterward a daughter was born, and for a time Catherine lived a fulfilled life as a wife and mother who always made time to read, especially in the bath! Her husband's job took him abroad again, to Portugal, West Africa, and various countries of the Middle East, but this time she stayed home with the family. And spent a lot of lonely evenings in between the reunions when her husband came home on leave.

"Instead of reading other people's novels all the time," he suggested one day, "why not have a shot at writing one yourself?" So Catherine did.

But first she took a creative writing course. Encouraged by the other students' enthusiasm for her contributions, she decided to try her hand at romance, and read countless Mills & Boon novels as research before writing one herself. Her first novel, which Romantic Times voted best of its genre for that year, was accepted, along with all 54 written since.

These days son and daughter have fled the nest, but they return with loving regularity to where Catherine and her husband--back for good from his travels--live, with Prince, the most recent Labrador, in a house built at the end of Victoria's reign in four acres of garden on the cliffs between the beautiful Wye Valley and the River Severn.




For Nicola, writing has always been a passion, starting at the age of eight when she designed and scripted elaborate "Abba" and "Grease" concerts for family and friends. Being a voracious reader, she devoured every book she came across: her particular favorites included The Famous Five, The Secret Seven, Nancy Drew, The Hardy Boys and the Trixie Belden series. Her all-time favorite book was Enid Blyton's The Magic Faraway Tree; oh, how she wished for her very own tree with a different land at the top every day!

In her teens, a love of English literature led to dreams of being a journalist. However, her career choice wandered towards medicine before a work experience stint at a hospital led her in a different direction, and she later qualified as a physiotherapist. While studying for her physiotherapy degree, she had several part-time jobs where she worked as a waitress, an admin clerk in an office, an art department gopher and a sales assistant in a hardware shop -- situations rich in life experience!

Once she started her career as a physiotherapist, she dabbled in sports medicine, private practice, community health and vocational rehabilitation before finding her true calling in life -- to be a romance author.

And she's rapt! How many people can say they work in their dream job? She certainly can and loves every minute of it, happiest when she's tapping away at the keyboard, getting her stories across to the readers.

She first started writing after she met her own tall, dark and handsome hero and learned, at last, that romance is everything it's cracked up to be! Once she put pen to paper, she couldn't stop and completed eight novels in two years. Several more works are now in progress.

Her secret? Write...write...and write some more! And believe in yourself and follow the dream.
