From the Inside Flap:

About the Author:

Georgette Heyer's novels have charmed and delighted millions of readers for decades. English Heritage has awarded Georgette Heyer one of their prestigious Blue Plaques, designating her Wimbledon home as the residence of an important figure in British history. She was born in Wimbledon in August 1902. She wrote her first novel, The Black Moth, at the age of seventeen to amuse her convalescent brother; it was published in 1921 and became an instant success.

Heyer published 56 books over the next 53 years, until her death from lung cancer in 1974. Her last book, My Lord John, was published posthumously in 1975. A very private woman, she rarely reached out to the public to discuss her works or personal life. Her work included Regency romances, mysteries and historical fiction. Known as the Queen of Regency romance, Heyer was legendary for her research, historical accuracy and her extraordinary plots and characterizations. She was married to George Ronald Rougier, a barrister, and they had one son, Richard.

Phyllida Nash has appeared in numerous sound productions, including over fifty plays for BBC Radio 4, as well as "Book at Bedtime", two series of "Up the Garden Path", and many classic serials. Her career spans stage, television, and radio, having played parts as diverse as Portia in "Julius Caesar" and Poppy Dicky in "Rookery Nook". Phyllida also produced the book "Unexplained Laughter" as a play for BBC television, which starred Diana Rigg and Elaine Page.
