Lydia Pembroke is an Australian author whose roots extend firmly back to England.
Her interest in historical England began when she learned that some of her ancestors were transported as convicts, and some were enticed as free settlers in exchange for large parcels of land.
Her interest in the Regency period was piqued by a pendant handed down through the generations from her great, great, great grandmother.
Now Lydia writes wonderfully romantic stories set in the world of Regency Romance where the surface of genteel and polite conversation and glittering balls hide intense emotions. But where love triumphs in the end.
She enjoys putting her characters in difficult situations and showing all facets of the human experience of love (oh, and she tries to not kill off her characters, unless it's really necessary)
