Lynne Francis grew up in Yorkshire, but studied, lived and worked in London for many years where she co-ran an non-fiction publishing company. Now she is a full-time writer living in Kent, and draws inspiration for her novels from a fascination with family history, landscapes and the countryside.
She has written several historical trilogies, the first set in her home county of Yorkshire, the later ones in east Kent, where she now lives. By coincidence she discovered after moving there that she has ancestral links to the area. She is published by Piatkus.
