Hazel lives in Staffordshire, England. She started writing at fifteen and has written on and off ever since. She has always been fascinated by history and writes mainly in the Regency and Georgian eras, although she has been known to occasionally stray into Medieval times.
When she was a child, she often told herself stories and this just progressed to committing them to paper to entertain family and friends. However, there have been gaps in her writing years where marriage and employment intervened, but now that she no long works, she is able to return to her first love and devote her time to writing. She had her first two novels published in 2005.
She has been married to her husband Terry since 1969 and they have a grown daughter and beautiful grandson. Apart from reading and writing historical novels, her other ruling passion is animals and until recently, she was treasurer for an organisation that raised money for animal charities.
She currently shares her home with two lovely yellow Labradors, Lucy and Mollie, who are her constant companions. They are real sweeties, but its not always easy working at the computer with a large Labrador trying to get on your knee!
Hazel hopes you enjoy reading her novels as much as she enjoys writing them and is always delighted to hear from her readers.
