SJ Bennett

SJ Bennett was born in Yorkshire and travelled the world as an army child. She studied languages at UCL and Cambridge University and had a varied career, including lobbyist and strategy consultant, before her first novel was published when she was 42. Since then her books have won the RNA Romance Novel of the Year, been optioned for TV twice, and have been translated into over 20 languages.

She was once asked to interview for the role of Assistant Private Secretary to the Queen and still considers it the job that got away. A curious royal watcher for many years, she lives in London where she can often be found haunting its palaces, museums, galleries and libraries.
