Mary Brendan Book and Novel

Mary Brendan - Author


Mary Brendan was born in North London, the third daughter in a family of six children; four girls and two boys. She was educated at the local grammar school and started work for an international oil company, firstly as a clerk and later as a personnel secretary. Always a keen reader of historical romance novels, she decided to try her hand at writing a Regency novel during my youngest son's afternoon naps. What started as a lazy lunchtime indulgence, sandwich in one hand, notepad in the other, soon developed into a highly enjoyable part-time occupation. She was delighted when her first work was accepted for publication in the United States in 1986. She now lives in a village in Suffolk, and when not at her word processor creating a hunky hero and feisty heroine to spark against one another, likes to relaxe by browsing junk shops for curios and antiques, or by visiting the local Tandoori for a prawn dansak and a glass or two of red wine.
