Meet the Author

Born in Bristol, Sarah Mallory grew up telling stories. She would make up adventures to relate to her school friends during break times and lunch hours, and was once caught scribbling a story instead of listening to the French lesson. As a punishment, her teacher made her translate the story into French!

She left school at sixteen and worked in offices as varied as stockbrokers, marine engineers, insurance brokers, biscuit manufacturers and even a quarrying company.

Sarah married at nineteen, but continued to work until the birth of her first child. It was at that time that she decided to try her hand at her first love—writing, and shortly after the birth of her daughter had her first book, Fortune's Lady, published under the pen name of Melinda Hammond. This was quickly followed by two more historical novels, Summer Charade and Autumn Bride, but with the birth of her twin sons the demands of family life meant that writing had to take a backseat for a few years.

A compulsive scribbler, Sarah never stopped writing and continued to work on research for her novels, experimenting with contemporary scenarios as well as writing pantomimes for her children's school. In 1989 the family moved to an isolated Pennine farmhouse in West Yorkshire not far from Bronte country, where the family expanded to include a dog, two gerbils and a dozen chickens. The growing family needed funding and she went back to work full-time. The writing had to be put on hold.

Then, in March 2000, Sarah stepped off a curb and landed in hospital with one ankle broken and one badly sprained. This laid her up on a sofa for twelve weeks and gave her the time sheneeded tofinish a novel. She wrote as Melinda Hammond and Maid of Honour was published the same year. Since then she has never looked back.

She's published more than a dozen books under this pen name and has won the Reviewers' Choice Award in 2005 from singletitles.com for Dance for a Diamond and the Historical Novel Society's Editors' Choice in November 2006 for Gentlemen in Question.
