Publisher's Summary

Georgette Heyer remains an enduring international best seller, read and loved by four generations of readers and extolled by today's best-selling authors. Despite her enormous popularity, she never gave an interview or appeared in public.

Georgette Heyer wrote her first novel, The Black Moth, when she was 17 in order to amuse her convalescent brother. It was published in 1921 to instant success, and 90 years later it has never been out of print. A phenomenon even in her own lifetime, to this day she is the undisputed queen of regency romance.

During 10 years of research into Georgette Heyer's life and writing, Jennifer Kloester has had unlimited access to Heyer's notebooks and private papers and the Heyer family records and exclusive access to several untapped archives of Heyer's early letters. Engaging, authoritative and meticulously researched, Georgette Heyer: Biography of a Bestseller offers a comprehensive insight into the life and writing of a remarkable and ferociously private woman.

    "Heyer as a person"

    Jennifer Kloester spent many years researching the life an works of Georgette Heyer, perhaps best known as the inventor of the Regency Romance. This biography allows the interested listener to learn more about Heyer as a person, and what was going on in her life as she wrote her beloved books. And Phyllida Nash was an excellent choice for narrator. She has narrated several of Heyer's novels and shows and interest and understanding of the genre. She also has a very pleasant voice. I am delighted to be able to listen to this biography.

    Currently Audible has almost all of Heyer's novels available as audiobooks, which is also a delight. Having this biography available fills out the set. I hope that one day Audible will be able to add audiobooks for Pistols for Two, Heyer's short story collection and the rare Heyer novels not currently available.
