Intrigued by the character of Edward Vlll, who makes an appearance in Palace Circle, Rebecca is currently writing a novel based on his early court life at Windsor when, as Prince of Wales, he was the most glittering icon of his times. Happily married, Rebecca Dean has five children, two small dogs and, though a Yorkshire girl born and bred, lives in London.
