A book by Stephanie Lawrence

Stephanie Laurens took up writing during her break from science. Her hobby quickly turned into a career, when her novels about the sovereign Kinster family fell in love with readers, making her one of the most beloved and popular authors. Stephanie Lawrence lives near Melbourne (Australia) with her husband, two daughters and two cats. She has been writing novels for 16 years, many of which have become bestsellers. She has created the series Kinsters, The Leicester Family and The Bastion Club. From my autobiography: I had a rather unusual childhood - I was born in Ceylon at the time when it just ceased to be a colony. When I was 5 years old, the family moved to Melbourne (Australia), where we have been living ever since.

After graduation, I received a biochemistry degree, and together with my husband we went to work in London on assignment. Of course, we didn`t just jump on the plane and fly. No, it was a wonderful journey - from Kathmandu to London, through North India to Kashmir, then through Pakistan and Afghanistan. From Kabul we moved on to Iran, then across the Caspian Sea, crossed Turkey. I still have vivid impressions about these countries, their amazing nature. Having traveled almost all of Europe, we finally reached England. In London, I got a job as a research scientist, just like my husband. We lived in a lovely little 16th century cottage surrounded on all sides by the lush green fields of Kent. Of course, not far away were the ruins of an ancient Roman villa, and just below - a medieval castle where the ancestors of its founders lived. We have lived 4 wonderful years in England, traveling also to France, Spain, Portugal and Northern Italy. We are very fond of provincial France, as for Portugal - for us it was a real paradise. Returning to Australia, we continued our scientific research. I already had my own laboratory when ...

fate intervened in my life. I must say that I have been fond of love stories since the age of 13 - since I read the books by Georgette Heyer, which my mother borrowed from a co-worker. In England, I had the opportunity to get acquainted with romance novels of the Regency era, which at that time were not available either in the United States or in Australia - I still have all the shelves filled with them. It so happened that after returning to Australia, I literally had nothing to read. And I really wanted a new novel about the Regency! But there was none in the stores. In despair, I decided to write such a novel myself - I always wanted to, but somehow my hands did not reach. I did just that - I just sat down and wrote a novel; I wrote at night, on weekends, mostly to amuse myself. To my surprise, I still finished the book - probably, I really wanted to know how it will end. Well, the book is clear, it turned out quite good, it was published. Over time, I realized that doing science is still not for me. The nervous tension was too high. But now I could do something different - write love stories. This is how I "left" my scientific life for a more calm and acceptable for me writing life. The rest, as they say, is history ...
