We have two pieces of news from Jane Dunn to share with you today.

As most of you will know, Jane published her biography about Daphne du Maurier and her sisters Angela and Jeanne in 2013.  In writing Daphne du Maurier and her Sisters: The Hidden Lives of Piffy, Bird and Bing, Jane brought us an excellent insight into three fascinating sisters as individuals and in their shared life and relationships with one another.

Having enjoyed a life as a biographer, Jane moved in a completely new direction last year when she published the first of her Regency novels.  She is enjoying writing historical fiction and fell in love with the Regency period when she was carrying out research for her first biography, Moon in Eclipse: A Life of Mary Shelley.  So, Jane had plenty of research material to draw on when writing these beautiful works of Regency fiction.

An Unsuitable Heiress, paperback, ISBN: 9781804835357.
A Scandalous Match, paperback, ISBN: 9781804835456.
