I was on a writing course last week for writers of teen fiction, one of my own favourite areas of novel writing. During conversation one evening, I mentioned to the group my mother and her lifelong commitment to writing.
To my surprise, quite a number of the women there - including one of the tutors - had been avid Mills & Boon readers as teenagers and could still remember reading my mother's novels with great pleasure. One was quite upset when she learnt that my mother was dead, as she frequently re-reads her favourite Charlotte Lamb novels and still thought of her as a contemporary writer.
As her best books are re-issued in various formats and editions around the world, including the exciting new Manga versions, I think a whole new generation of Charlotte Lamb fans will be created. If you are one of them, do please drop me an email or comment below this blog post and let us know your experience of Charlotte Lamb romances, thrillers and historicals.
