Posted: 03 Aug 2012 09:30 PM PDT

Courtesy of Amazon - Georgette Heyer remains an enduring international bestseller, read and loved by four generations of readers and extolled by today's bestselling authors. Despite her enormous popularity she never gave an interview or appeared in public. Georgette Heyer wrote her first novel, The Black Moth, when she was seventeen in order to amuse her convalescent brother. It was published in 1921 to instant success and ninety years later it has never been out of print. A phenomenon even in her own lifetime, to this day she is the undisputed queen of regency romance.

During ten years of research into Georgette Heyer's life and writing, Jennifer Kloester has had unlimited access to Heyer's notebooks and private papers and the Heyer family records, and exclusive access to several untapped archives of Heyer's early letters. Engaging, authoritative and meticulously researched, Georgette Heyer: Biography of a Bestseller offers a comprehensive insight into the life and writing of a remarkable and ferociously private woman.

Georgette has published over 55 books and is well known as the Queen of Regency Romance.  I remember my grandmother reading these books, then when I was old enough, I have to.  Now, in a few more years, I'll turn my daughter toward them.  Simply Amazing to have had such a publishing career! Happy Birthday Georgette!
