About the Author

Josephine Cox

Josephine Cox was born in a cotton-mill house in Blackburn, one of ten children. At the age of sixteen, Josephine met and married her husband Ken, and had two sons. When the boys started school, she decided to go to college and eventually gained a place at Cambridge University. She was unable to take this up as it would have meant living away from home, but she went into teaching - and started to write her first full-length novel. She won the 'Superwoman of Great Britain' Award, for which her family had secretly entered her, at the same time as her novel was accepted for publication.

Josephine has now given up teaching in order to write full time. She says 'I love writing, both recreating scenes and characters from my past, together with new storylines which mingle naturally with the old. I could never imagine a single day without writing, and it's been that way since as far back as I can remember.'

Josephine Cox was given a Lifetime Acheivement Award by the Romantic Novelists Association in March 2011. At the awards ceremony Cox said: "I am thrilled and delighted to be receiving such a prestigious award. It's something I never expected and I would like to thank all those concerned for thinking I am deserving of it."
