Victoria Connelly studied English Literature at Worcester University, got married in a medieval castle in the Yorkshire Dales and now lives in rural Suffolk with her artist husband, a young springer spaniel and a flock of ex-battery hens. She is the author of two bestselling series, Austen Addicts and The Book Lovers, as well as many other novels and novellas. Her first published novel, Flights of Angels, was made into a film in 2008 by Ziegler Films in Germany. The Runaway Actress was shortlisted for the Romantic Novelists' Association's Romantic Comedy Novel award. Ms Connelly loves books, films, walking, historic buildings and animals. If she isn't at her keyboard writing, she can usually be found in her garden, either with a trowel in her hand or a hen on her lap.
