Blair Bancroft recalls receiving odd looks from adults as she walked home from school at age seven, her lips moving as she told herself stories. And there was never a night she didn't entertain herself with her own bedtime stories. But it was only after a variety of other careers that she turned to serious writing. Blair has been a music teacher, professional singer, non-fiction editor, costume designer, and real estate agent. She has traveled from Bratsk, Siberia, to Machu Picchu, Peru, and made numerous visits to Europe, Britain, and Ireland. She is now attempting to incorporate all these varied experiences into her writing.


Blair's first book, TARLETON'S WIFE, won RWA's Golden Heart and the Best Romance award from the Florida Writers' Association. Her romantic suspense novel, SHADOWED PARADISE, and her Young Adult Medieval, ROSES IN THE MIST, were finalists for an EPPIE, the "Oscar" of the e-book industry. Blair's Regency, THE INDIFFERENT EARL, was chosen as Best Regency by Romantic Times magazine and was a finalist for RWA's RITA award.


Blair believes variety is the spice of life. Her recent books include Historical Romance, Romantic Suspense, Mystery, Thrillers, and Steampunk, all available at Smashwords.


A long-time resident of Florida, Blair fondly recalls growing up in Connecticut, which still has a piece of her heart.

I was surprised, it was really good. A lot of historical facts. The only thing missing was an epilogue.... In a story of two sweet lovers as these, it's only right that we get a visual of their future. The whole story pulled you along waiting for that moment then .......... However there was a lot of true history facts on everyone else in the story. I dont think I like made up characters thrown in with true historical stuff..... Maybe lie next time about the lead characters, I won't know the difference!

I am a fan of Blair Bancroft now, but when I picked up this book as a first sample of her talents, I fell in love! Maybe not the most original plot, it was well developed, as were the characters, and extremely well written. I was captivated from the first page!
