By the age of 11, Emma Orchard had read all the books in Swinton Children's Library several times, and so was given special permission to use the adult section. Here she discovered Georgette Heyer, and has never looked back.
She studied English Literature at the universities of Edinburgh and York, and went on to work behind the scenes in television and publishing. She is married with two grown-up children.
Her first novel, The Second Lady Silverwood, is published by Allison & Busby in April 2023.
