GEORGETTE HEYER: the Queen of Regency Fiction

Born on 16 August, 1902 in Wimbledon, London, Georgette Heyer's first book, The Black Moth, written to amuse her brother Boris during an illness, was published in 1921 when she was only nineteen years old. She died in 1974 and her last book, My Lord John, was published posthumously. Between these two titles this wonderfully prolific author wrote over 50 books: Historical Fiction, Regency Fiction, Historical Romantic Suspense, Contemporary Fiction and Mysteries. Although she created the Regency Romance genre, and she is certainly best known for her Regency fiction, she also wrote books set during the Restoration, Medieval, Georgian and the France of Louis XV, along with three biographies. An Infamous Army, set in and around the battle of Waterloo with an extensive bibliography for further reading, was so well researched and vividly written that it has been used as a school text-book.

Heyer was a meticulous researcher and she set high standards for historical accuracy for the many authors who have followed in her footsteps. Her books are characterised by their sense of historical "presence", amusing dialogue, strong intricate characters and variety of plot elements.
