Rebecca Lisle

  • 5 stars across 22 books
    Born and educated in Leeds, Rebecca spent her gap year as an au pair in France, where the view from her bedroom window was Mont Blanc! Living in an old chateau, without a TV, Rebecca spent a lot of time writing, to amuse herself and her charges. After university at Newcastle and Oxford, she worked as a teacher - only part time, so that she could fit in a few short stories and some romantic fiction. Marriage in 1985 and having children temporarily halted the writing, but when her three boys were old enough she was at it again. Now living in Bristol with her husband, sons, dog and cat. And Rebecca is the happy author of sixteen books, and is busily at work on the follow up to THE CURSE OF THE TOADS to be published in 2007 called THE CURSE OF THE RAVENS.
