Veronica Henry Book and Novel

Veronica Henry - Author

Veronica Henry was our Guest Editor in August 2010 - click here - to see the books that inspired her writing.

Veronica Henry began her career as a script typist for Radio 4s 'The Archers'.

After two years in Ambridge she became a script editor for Central Television, then jumped over the fence and wrote scripts for ten years for many of our best loved dramas, including Boon, Heartbeat and Holby City.

Her secret wish to become a novelist was fulfilled in 2000. Her fourth novel, An Eligible Bachelor, was shortlisted for the RNA Novel of the Year Award 2006 for A Night on the Orient Express.

Veronica lives with her husband and three sons in a village in North Devon.
