About Mary

I grew up in post-war Wales as Mary Jenkins. It was in many ways an idyllic childhood even though Swansea, my home town, had been heavily bombed during the war, rationing was still on, and material possessions were few.

  • Lovely website! I love your stories and the characters that you bring to life.

    Beth Geiger Kansas US
  • I started reading your books only this year and have almost finished reading all that are available in eBook format. (No room in my house for more hardcopy books!) I love them and start a new one as soon as I finish the current one.. I have only one regret and request. The system does not lend itself to printing any pages, including a family tree, even with a screen scraper. I am usually able to locate a relevant map, location image, or dress and uniform examples on the internet; but no family trees for your fictional characters. Since many of your books reference the same or related characters would you please include printable family trees on your website? As I start to re-read the books, a family tree would be most helpful.

  • Beautiful website, Mary!

    Margaret Gannon Hampstead, NC USA
  • Mary, I have longed to see the new website. I do check often and was surprised today with a happy website. I love it. Keep it up you write wonderful books. I cannot wait for the next one. Excited fan, Rossi

    Rossi Moreno Milwaukee, WI USA
  • When I see any book of yours I grab it up. You are such a wonderful writer. I enjoy them all. My list of your books I read is very long. Thank you. Sorry trump is our embarrassment not our president.

    Jacqueline Clapper Canton, Ohio USA
  • I have read and kept all your books ( that I came across ) and novellas and reread them and repaired them, necessity from wear and affection required. Some I found in the thriving second hand market but enjoyed them in no particular order, especially the Signet Regency Romance edition (24)s as I knew I could depend on them for a quick read when my available time was at a premium.. I saved the longer editions for reading over several nights. Use of language, both able to paint a vivid visual and developing personalities of the characters. Always happy to finish without any disappointment., just satisfaction. I was only peripherally aware of reoccurring character names and before I retired and had a computer by then the definitely identified Series books began. I had not linked the earlier books and only recently realized I was missing Dark Angel after re reading Lord Carew's Bride and The Famous Heroine. and stacking the other five from that group. so many of your earlier writings have been re-issued is there any chance that Dark Angel might also become available again? Thank you for untold hours of reading pleasure, Just got home from a long road trip to Minnesota and back and. the Westcott Series latest available Someone to Care was my companion. My favorites are fickle as it is usually what I am reading at the time. Thank you again.. Judith P

  • Thank you Mary, for this glimpse into your life along with all of the book details. You've been my favourite author for many years and I have collected most of your print books, which has been no mean feat! Of course I also have the ebooks and the audiobooks. Your writing and Anne Flosnik seem like natural partners. for your audiobooks and are always a joy to hear whilst doing mindless things on the computer. Since I'm somewhat older than you my time is my own (at last!) so I read the print books in bed, and the ebooks go with me when I leave the house. Slightly Dangerous is my all time favourite book of any genre, so I keep going back to listen again a few times each year. Kind regards from Eunice

  • I’m excited about your new website! It’s awesome! I would reallllly like to win a book bag! 😊 p.s. I think I’ve read every book you’ve written. I’m 61 😊

  • Just finished "Someone To Care" ,your best one yet!! Can't wait for Someone To Trust.you really are my favorite Romance writer!! Millie Hanrahan

    Millie Hanrahan Fort Myers Florida USA
  • I found your books years ago in the Signet Regency world. I still have some of those paperbacks. Excited you are reissuing. About 10 years ago my newly wed husband surprised me with a bookmark and other goodies from you for my birthday. He knew how much I loved your books and your were very kind to help him out! Love keeping in touch with you on Facebook. Happy writing!

    Joyce Burkhardt Ohio USA
  • I really love the way you write. You always take time to made me love all your characters. I'm looking forward to read your new books and the ones that are already out there that I haven't read yet.

    Marie-Noelle Vachon Quebec Canada
  • I find myself returning to your books repeatedly and when my daughter says you just read that, I say it gives me such comfort. I, like you, read all types of books but when I want a book that takes me back to a historically accurate regency period written with such well developed characters that you come to care about, well it is your book that I crave. I find myself reading for up to 6 hours a night! Your writing is a beautiful gift you have shared with us and I for one have learned a lot about the regency period as well as wales and I thank you for this.

    Sue Lincoln Charlottessville, Virginia US
  • I’ve probably read almost all of your books and will grieve if you actually retire from writing. What I like the most is that your books vary in type and are sometimes truly touching on subjects that others ignore.

    Ellen B Delaware Usa
  • My favorite book is Dancing with Clara.

    LC E Ga USA
  • Awesome website. I read and reread your books. They touch my soul and entertain me.

    Joyce Berty Avon, Ohio USA
  • Wonderful site! Thank you for telling us how to pronounce your last name. I always strive for correctness when it comes to names, as mine is frequently mispronounced (though. I'm not sure why). I'm now off to search YouTube for Welsh male choirs. :~)

    Jennifer Hynes Indianapolis, IN United States
  • I have read all your books that have been available to me. As a retired English teacher, I love your style. However, I especially like that many of your characters have “flaws”. Too plump, too nearsighted, etc. make them real.

    Martha Durick Columbus, ND USA
  • I'm a new reader of your books, and over the last few months have read and really enjoyed both the Wescott and the Simply series and have recently started the Bedwyn series. I haven't read enough yet to decide which is my favorite book of yours, but right now I can say that my favorite is usually the last one I've read. They are all great. Appreciate the wonderful reads.

    Linda Jackson Chicago, Illinois USA
  • Please add me to your upcoming releases.

    ardella slavens chalmers, in usa
  • The day I stumbled across the Simply series was truly an auspicious one. I've enjoyed every story you've told. Your views on communication and what happiness really is are so in line with my own that I relish devouring your new works - and find much comfort in curling up with an old favourite, time and time again. Thank you. 💙

    Catherine W Edmonton Canada
  • SIMPLY... THE BEST OF THE BEST! I have enjoyed ALL of the books you have written. Such an amazing array of Characters and their stories. So, from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU FOR HOURS OF ENTERTAINMENT!

    Jeri Arterburn Hensley USA
  • Hi, I just finished Survivors' Club this year and loved it! I'd like to know if this series will have sequels, with the survivors' children or if this books does exist already? Thank you, Dandara.

    Dandara Machado Santa Maria/Rio Grande do sul Brazil
  • Thank you so much for the gift of your stories. Since I stumbled across my first just over 2 years ago I've read more than 80 titles. Now that I've discovered your website I can see that there are still more for me to find. Yay.

    Peter Yardley Campbell River, BC Canada
  • Your new website is lovely! I especially like the family history and photos.

    Renee Gailloreto Whitewater, WI USA
  • I love the new website!

    Alison Hiltabidle Rocky Ridge, MD USA
  • I love the look of your new blog. The only change I might like to see is darker print, like on this page, the text is gray, a bit hard on old eyes. But I love the simplicity. I hate blogs that are loaded with content and graphics on one page. I work off an older iPad, and lots of graphics takes longer to load, more prone to crashing, and I can get lost. It's nice to see the older Signet regencies coming back out. I don't have to stress over the ebook thing as I still have all of yours, and a few other favorite regency authors. But for others, just discovering that unique Regency world, it's a godsend I'm sure. Many thanks for decades of great reading.

    Betty Schulz Vallejo, CA USA
  • Love your new page. Look forward to each and everyone of your books. I thoroughly enjoy them!!!

    Dawn Miller Bluffton, Indiana USA
  • Dear Mary, I'm reading through all your books...Just finished the Frazer series, to start reading the only one's books. And I have to say it, I just love so veru much all your books. You're such a great author. I'm a literary translator, and I work with literature all the time, not always enjoying very much what I read. So, read for me is very important. Reading your books brings me the emotional satisfaction, I feel so very happy, and I've became addicted to this sweet feeling, that your books have brought me. I have to thank you, to spent so much feeling in words, for your readers...And thank you for every dear character you have introduced us through all your books. I'm reading now A Thirf of Dreams, and I already love it,...And I loooooove it when a book caught me in the first chapter. Thank you.

    Tully Ehlers São Paulo/São Paulo Brazil
  • I love your books so much. My husband reads your books to me at night, even when I travel I call him and he reads to me. He says he enjoys reading them to me, I'm just glad he does.

    Debra Thomas Austin, texas USA
  • As an English teacher, I always thought myself "above* romance books. Then one day I got a copy of Someone to Love on sale, and I was captivated by the richness of the characters and plot. A little while later I picked up a copy of Simply Magic, and I was hooked! Such interesting characters, a sweet love story, and a even a mysterious back story. Wow! I'm now on a mission to read all your books. I've read around 30 so far, and I've loved every one. I'm so glad you've written so many-- so much to look forward to ! Thank you for all the enjoyment.

    Rachel Zimand St. Louis, MO USA
  • I love your characters. You make them seem like real flesh and blood people. Some writers paint pictures with there words, some make the setting or the time frame the most important. With you it is the characters. Thank You. I am very much a fan!

    Darlene Berglof Sumas, Wa USA
  • Hi Mary, Simply, I think you’re the best - plots, style, characters, contents, variety, inventiveness, the whole package. Only discovered you in the last couple of years and you’ve greatly enriched my whole reading experience. Have just finished re-reading the ‘Mistress’ books, this time in order of marriages along with the missing chapters appropriately inserted from Now A Bride which added even more enjoyment second time around. I thoroughly delighted in the extras and greatly appreciated you sharing them after all. I did, however (that’s better than a ‘but’ hey?) notice the superb Tresham telling his friends several times,and Jane, in More than a Mistress that He ‘never waltzed.’ [Though this was naturally overruled in ch10 in order to waltz with his Jane.] Yet at an earlier occasion in Vauxhall Gardens, in ch10 The Secret Mistress, Tresham had actually led Cousin Belinda/Lady Eagan onto the dance floor and waltzed with her publicly, and deliciously. Perhaps I noticed the anomaly because you drew his Vauxhall waltz so luciously?😁 Bless you, Please keep writing and really hope you outlive me! Ek

    Erana Wojtas Christchurch New Zealand
  • Mary - I love your books! I believe I have read all of them and always look forward to the release of new ones. Your characters are believable and human and I love the way they work through their emotions and lives just like the rest of us. Keep on writing please!

    Karen Barber Syracuse, NY USA
  • My mother (who has passed away) started my love of romance. She had all of your books - some were lost due to hurricanes and friends borrowing. When the Survivor Series came out, we would go to the bookstore and buy two copies. We finally got wise to pre-ordering, and then it came down to who would get their copy delivered first. She usually got her copy earlier in the day (or even a day before me) because she ordered more from Amazon then I did. I have re-read all of your books, I have 75 on kindle. I never get tired of them. I have loaned my print copies out and given several from my mother's collection away. Can't wait for Elizabeth's story! I already have "A Christmas Bride" and "Under the Mistletoe", so will probably not order "A Very Special Christmas", but it will be the first time that I haven't gotten your latest. Thank you for all of your stories! Please keep them coming.

    Karen McConathy Texas United States
  • I love the new website, but I love your writing more. Thank you for sharing your life story with us on the "About" page. I read and re-read your books often. If I can't find something to read, I know an old friend is always on the shelf. I do wish that the publishers would re-issue your books in hardback editions so that they could last longer as my Bedwyn set is becoming quite tattered.

    Lynda de los Santos Texas United States
  • I first signed your guest book many years ago and have been an admirer it seems forever! I still use the autographed book marker you sent and I do have all your books, including the Signet ("Lady with a Black Umbrella") I won by paying $50 in the long-ago days when Amazon had bidding wars. You give Jane Austen a run for her money, with your literate, well-thought out, sensitive descriptions of the "human comedy." I value the e-books because they give me quick access when I want to reread a particular favorite, especially the Christmas stories, which still bring a tear to the eye. Years ago, when I was visiting Los Angeles, I discovered a book store that had five (!) of the older Christmas anthologies with your stories. I bought them and shipped them home! How lovely to find those stories together now.

    Lee C Grand Island NY
  • I am enjoying the Wescott novels as I do all your books. I am so looking forward to Elizabeths story. Your books make me cry and laugh. Thank you for all your wonderful stories

    Jennifer Warrick Chesapeake United States
  • I sincerely appreciate and am touched by the wisdom that you include in your books. In the Claudia and Joseph book ( my fave) you have the interlude of silence and in other books as well. 'So many great romance writers and I am so fortunate that one writes from the truth of being. If you are familiar with Gangagi she would describe you as a 'secret agent' sharing the true depth of life. You reach my heart.

  • I have been a Mary Balogh fan since 2002, when I happened across A Summer to Remember. What a great time to discover your books, as that was the jumping off point for the truly wonderful Bedwyn and Simply series, and eventually even the Survivors' Club! I love the way you can create an entire community of characters who weave in and out of each other's books. And you are doing it again with the Westcott family. I can't wait for Elizabeth & Colin's story this fall. The set-up reminds me of my own love story with a younger man, to whom I've been happily married for 20+ years. 🙂 Many of your heroines have characteristics or circumstances that I can identify with; I think this is part of your gift of creating characters that ring true and to whom your readers can relate. Several of your books have become old friends that I revisit regularly. Thank you so much for your fabulous body of work and your ongoing dedication to your craft. And for somehow finding time to connect with us on Facebook, too!

    Kathy O. Illinois USA
  • I have read almost all of your books, and, obviously, love your writing. Wulfric Bedwyn is my favorite hero...followed by Claudia and her Marquis! Thank you for hours of pleasure.

  • Nice website. Congratulation from one Sask stubble jumper to another.😀

    Marilyn Karst White City, Sask Canada
  • I am so excited to see the books you have coming out this year Mary! I am one of those people who greatly prefer a paper book to an ebook, but I understand the physical and financial limitations of publishing. Luckily, thanks to my diligence (and luck!) when I first discovered your books, I was able to find a number of your old Signet Regencies in the used book stores, but my copies have been read and re-read so many times that they are falling apart. What a luxury to have the opportunity to purchase e-copies! The Wescott series is wonderful and I can't wait for the next installment. Thank you very much for the many hours of reading pleasure you have given us all.

    Lisa Schultz San Jose, CA USA
  • I have gathered together a complete set of your books including the short stories reading them ass they were acquired. Now I have set upon reading them in chronological order and am half way through (up to 1996). My burning question now is..... should I read the series together or in chronological order? Yes, I seem to have OCD. 🙂 Your books enthrall me, soothe me and comfort me in this uncertain world we live in at this time. Much love, Sheila P.

    Sheila Prince Stittsville, On Canada
  • I am new to the romance genre, being a mystery reader for the most part. I have been pleasantly surprised by your books. The writing is exquisite and the characters memorable and charismatic. Plots are intriguing and at times surprising. I am enjoying being relaxed while I read, which makes a change from the sometimes blood and gore of mysteries. Surprised to see you live in Saskatchewan!

    Dodie Bizon Sherwood Park, Alberta Canada
  • I am a Reader of your books, and i like this genre. Please can you inform me, of following books will appear in future in german Version or if not, and where I can get your books. slightly married slightly wicked slightly tempted slightly sinful slightly dangerous Thank you for your answer. Kind regards - Josefa Markowetz - Greetings vom Austria

  • I have never read any of your books that have disappointed me in any way. Love them all and of course any you write in future

    Jan Lowe Brownstown,Michigan USA
  • I discovered your books recently and I have listened to several audio editions - the complete Bedwyn series, and now I'm working my way through the Simply books. I do enjoy reaidngs so many interconnected stories set in the same universe - and I can see there are many others yet in store for me! I especially look forward to reading or listening Kit and Lauren's story and the counterpart of it, her erstwhile fiancé and his wartime wife's. I'm very glad there are several books available inthe Audible Romance package and I congratulate you on finding such an exquisite narrator as Ms. Landor who brings out so many facets of the subtle emotions and humor in the text. Thank you for this blog and for writing excellent Regency romances!

    Agnes Nogradi Pécs Hungary
  • I only found your books a couple of years back, but have read, and enjoyed, all I can get my hands on. I'm confused though, because many of your old books are being re-issued and they sound familiar. I'm wondering if maybe I've read them in books that are combined maybe with other authors, or more than one of your own stories...maybe with different titles? Do you happen to have a list connecting those books and your booklist? I don't want to re-purchase stories from Amazon that I already own under another title... Thank you for the many hours of enjoyable reading.

  • Love the new website! Keeping up with your prolific writing can be tough some times...I can’t always read as quickly as you can’t write. 😊

    Michelle Long Hershey US
  • Mary, you are top of my list on historical authors. Your books are like a forever-gift. They make my world so much brighter. Thank you.

    Felicia Fallon Richmond, Virginia United States
  • Mary, I really enjoy reading your books, and the crossover of some of your characters between the different series. Like you, I am a great fan of the English author Georgette Heyer, and particularly of her book "Frederica" - I always enjoy anything about early inventions! I became an "Accidental Author", as you will be able to see from my web page - http://www.janetaylmer.com/authorbio.html and https://uk.linkedin.com/in/jean-brushfield-17280318 Having unintentionally written a "best seller" myself based on Jane Austen's P&P, I wonder whether anyone has ever suggested to you that they could write "missing chapters" for any of your novels, such as Slightly Scandalous or Simply Perfect? Some authors are now adding Epilogues to some of their books, which I suppose are missing chapters in a way; or, a different approach, a Novella as a prequel to a book already published. Or do you hate the thought of that type of idea?

    Jean Brushfield Bath, Somerset, and now Tunbridge Wells, Kent United Kingdom
  • I tried to leave a message on your blog, but it didn't take, I just wanted to let you know that I am glad that you started the blog again. I have enjoyed it so much in the past. I'm a real fan girl. I love your books.

    Mary T Missouri USA
  • I love all your books. But, I love epilogues. What happened to Edmund Waite and Mary? Did they have a child? Would have loved and epilogue. I know you don't always write one so I make them up in my head. Also Sophie and her husband in the counterfit bethrold. Love you books. Thank you

    Jackie Miller Norwalk, Connecticut USA
  • Love the series books. Appreciate your talent.

    Linda Knecht Levittown, PA USA
  • I enjoyed reading about how you get your ideas.

    Sandra Chan Auckland New Zealand
  • Glad to see The First Snowdrop coming as an ebook. I have been reading your books since A Masked Deception, which if I remembcer, was published even before The First Snowdrop. My Snowdrop is read at least once a year and is now simply a collection of loose pages - binding has long given up the ghost and the glue! This book, and many others of yours, especially the Christmas anthologies, are kept in the bookcase next to my bed. I love Regencies - and you are the only author of whom I have kept all the print books. - several lineal feet!

    Judy Needham Cape Cod, Massachusetts USA
  • To say I am a Mary Balogh fan is a massive understatement! I serendipidiously discovered Freya's book on my trip to Canada, at a lodge near Toronto in the landlady's little stack of books. I managed to hunt down the only copy of Slightly Dangerous in Romania and then badgered my dad who was on a trip to England to hunt down the other Bedwyn books. This was in pre online shopping era so we did a lot of hunting for your books, all worth it! We have lots of decent Romanian translations, though I am glad to have the original ebooks now, So happy I can enjoy your backlist finally. I started reading so much more thanks to you and it has been a great experience getting lost in each and every book. Thank you for your work & know you have lots of fans in Romania!

  • I have read 60 of your books & 10 novellas & loved each one. I started reading regencies in 2000 when I retired & got hooked on your books. You, Grace Burrowes & Julia Quinn are my favorites & I've started SAVING those books. I used to donate all my books to our local library but when I started the Survivor's Club, I decided to save the series. One day I was cleaning closets & found the entire Huxtable series on the floor, it must have fallen out of the bag of donations-to-go. I love reading series & don't start them till I have them all. But I often find a character pop up somewhere else & that is so nice. Keep up the exceptional work.

    Carol Lynn Glendale WI
  • Where Do Your Ideas Come From? Somewhere in my book collection I think I have a book, 'Where does creativity come from?' Which reminded me of your musings on ideas and trying to explain where they come from. I'm fairly certain that we don't really know. Not a location. Nor a specific moment. Inspiration comes with many emotions, visuals, audio and grace or mindfulness that allows us to be open to receiving all that we have going on around us and in our memories. Relationships add to our reactions to experiences. Remembered words or moments stay with us. I love that you are inspired by music and share your loved moments from all types of music. My mother loved your books. Reading Mary Balogh were times when she expanded her knowledge, her heart and her faith that Love is the answer and we can all change. I read your books to her during the last four months of her life. She linked me to reading your books. I think of her as I read and comment to her (in my head/heart) lovely moments and character's uniqueness and wisdom. My mother even got my father to read your books. Over 18 years ago, I can still see him (in my mind's eye) with his eyeglasses up on this forehead, lying on top of his bed...reading one of your books. My father once said that he wished he had read Regency Romances many years ago. He thought he'd be a better husband if he had known more about romantic love. Thank you for capturing your ideas and building them into healing and inspiring stories. Katherine Cramer

    Katherine Cramer Oakland, California United States
  • I have nearly every one of your books from earliest to present day. I am working on the collection. I want you to know how much I admire and appreciate your work. Thanks for all you do.

  • You are my favorite author. I enjoyed reading your bio on the new website. Thanks for the info on how to pronounce your name. I’ve been saying it wrong for years! Keep the new books coming!

  • Paddy Ann Patton aka Grace Fellowes recommended I read your books. I met Paddy at a workshop in April and contacted her when a school friend and I decided to write a historical romance novel together. My school friend and I live in Austin, Texas but we went to boarding school in England. To get started, Paddy suggested I read your novels and sang your praises! I wondered if you had any advice for my friend and me as we set out? Any suggestions/ workshops/ conferences you would recommend? Very best wishes, Val

  • I am a real fan of your books and have read them all. Especially LONGING, this is my favourite I have read it many times and still get tears in my eyes. As long as my library has it I shall read it again and again. But it would be wonderful to own my own copy. I'm afraid I couldn't leave a comment on your blog.

    Yvonne Jones Hamilton New Zealand
  • I really love your books. Especially the newer ones. You have great plots and believable characters. I am eagerly awaiting the new book.

    Mary Carricaburu Riverside, CA USA
  • Sorry to get technical (because it's a lovely site, and yours are wonderful books) but you should ask your web developers to change the links for Amazon, etc. to ones that open in a new tab. That way, when I want to pre-order A Daring Masquerade (which I did), I still have your website up on its own tab to return to. As it was, I had to back out of Amazon and you know how grabby that site can be. 🙂

    Magdalen Braden Kingsley, PA USA
  • I really absolutely love your work, my first book of yours was Dark Angel/ Lord Carew's Bride. It is so very near and dear to my heart, I get a great sense of joy reading your books. It helps me escape reality, if only for a moment. Thank You

    Laura Kirani Las Vegas, NV USA
  • I just want to thank you for the hours and hours of joy you have given me. When I am stressed, I reach for your stories again and again. Some of them I re-read as old friends. There are certain scenes that I remember and treasure. I hope that in your busy life you have time to read the comments people leave and understand ho wmuch you are appreciated. I am going through a hard time right now, and I have spent many sleepless nights with the Survivor's Club novels (again). They are old friends - both the books and the characters. Thank you so much. I am so grateful.

    Lisa Van Gemert Arlington, TX United States
  • I have enjoyed each stand alone book and each series. My favorite book of all of your series is "the next one". I love the way your words flow as you develop your story line. Thank you for perfecting this excellent craft of story telling .

  • Love, love, love your books. My 83 year old mother is a fan too. Keep giving us great books

    Joyce Hagens Kerens, Texas USA
  • I love your books and always look forward to the next one. I use to get your email newsletter which I enjoyed and love the update on the next book coming out. However, I’m very disappointed that for the last couple of years, for some reason, I no longer get your email newsletter. I would really like to. Yes, I know I can go to your site, which I do, buy, it was so much nicer to get it by email to let me know it was out and about the upcoming books. Can’t wait for your next books

    Susan S Benton, LA USA
  • I am not sure if this the proper spot, but I received an email that I was a lucky winner in your drawing! I am delighted and thankful. My thanks for this gift and the gift of hundreds of hours of sweet reading! Martha

    Martha Durick Columbus, ND USA
  • This is a wonderful website! I love the design and how the books are laid out by year or series. The family photo was super cute too 🙂 It's always nice to learn a little more about the life of the person writing/making all the 'magic'. I'm a big audiobook fan - love the performances of the voice actors, and I can read while doing dishes, etc. even when my eyes are tired after work. So I am REALLY looking forward to more of your books being available online, especially the Christmas ones!!

  • I found Mary Balogh books this year! First was The Secret Pearl. It was such a good story. Since then I have read The Survivor's Club series, The Slightly series, The Mistress series, The Web series. Just finished Beyond the Sunrise. I loved the historical background of this story as well as Joana and Robert. Thanks for sharing your writing talents with all your reading audience. Please don't stop writing!

    Mickey Perhac Spring Hill. Tenn. USA
  • I started reading regency romances at age 15 when I started working at my local public library. I adored Georgette Heyer and became addicted to Mary Stewart’s romantic suspense novels. One day a work colleague suggested your books. I started the Bedwyn series and was captivated by your ability to create memorable characters. Your excel in writing romances that cannot be put down (my husband can bear witness to that since I read in bed). I know you have a great sense of humor from following you on Facebook. Your books give me a lot of pleasure. Thank you.

  • A friend gave me a bunch of "romance" books to take back to the library. I had never read a book of that genre and read one of them that fell out of the bag. It was not very good, but as you said this type of book could have great or better quality. I asked my librarian if there were a better quality author of this type of books. She took me to the regular fiction shelves and showed me your books. ( Not in the "Romance" stacks. ) And that was the beginning... I love your novels!! Especially the series. Am looking forward to "Someone to Trust" and catching up with some of your earlier books that I missed. Thank you for the many hours of quality enjoyment.

  • Thank you for sharing your talent in the stories you tell. I have just started reading your books and have fallen in love with the Survivors series. I have so many more to read and look forward to it. These stories take me to a world I can only imagine living in - in a way I am glad I did not. I can identify with so many of your characters. I had the joys of travelling in Wales twice and loved the areas we saw. My husband loved the little railways and that brought us to the sites and to learn the history. I now must return to Wales, Scotland and England soon to visit the places in the stories and also visit my friends there. I am trying to read your series in order, but the library here does not have all of them. Hunting them down online and in bookshops. (I prefer books) Looking forward to reading all your books - thank YOU!

  • I've just reread the Bedwyn series - one of my all time favourites - although I do appreciate all your books and series - and are wondering if you ever have thought about picking up that thread again and would tell us a second generation story about Christian Bedwyn all grown up. It would give your readers a chance to see how Wulfric and Christine are doing in their sixties and might offer glimpses of the other Bedwyns and their offspring as well. As you have mentioned in your blog Wulfric is your most popular hero and his son might follow suit. I'm certainly not the only one who would be interested. Thank you once again for many pleasurable hours of reading and enjoying your books. I sincerely hope there will be many more to come. All the best, Ingrid

  • I am pleasantly surprised by the number of books you’ve authored. I thought I had read all your books, but find I am woefully behind. I now know what to tell my family when they ask what I want for my birthday. I hesitate to give feedback concerning the website, as I am on my IPhone and I’d like to view it on my laptop (where I can actually see it better). However, anything printed in gray is difficult for me to read.

  • I have read and reread all your books and always enjoy them. I just read your biography on your website and it helped me to understand why I am so drawn to you and your writing. I often get your posts on Facebook and must admit they are one of the few things that I share. I love your puns, your cartoons, and the beautiful pictures you share. Thank you for the enjoyment you have brought into my life. Rosemary

  • Dear Mary. I have read every book you have in print and have just completed "Someone to Care" which reminds me somewhat of "The Escape." I am originally from Jamaica, the West Indies. One book that means a lot to me is "Longing" set in Wales. As a child in the backwoods of home, I learned about the "Eisteddfod" when it was introduced to our school by a very forward-looking Head Teacher. I grew up in the days when my country was still ruled by Britain and so I view myself as through and through British. Naturally, I am enthralled by everything Regency, but I love your turn of phrase and I often go back and re-read whole books just for the joy of it. I am a writer myself, but my genre is poetry. Please keep the books coming and if there are some out of print, you may want to have them released again. Thank you, Rose.
