Helen Brooks

Helen Brooks

Rita Bradshaw was born on 1950 in Northampton, England, where she was educated as a good Christian by her mother Vi Whitsey. She met Clive, her husband, at the age of 16 and now the magic is still there. They have three lovely children, Cara, Faye, and Benjamin. For years, Rita worked as secretary.

Rita began writing in 1990 as she approached that milestone of a birthday 40! She realized her two teenage ambitions (writing a novel and learning to drive) had been lost amid babies and hectic family life, so set about resurrecting them. She sent off a 55,000 word romance called Deceitful Lover to Mills & Boon, that was accepted after one rewrite in 1992 under the pseudonym Helen Brooks, and she passed her driving test (the former was a joy and the latter an unmitigated nightmare!) Under her pen name has written many successful novels and several delightful sagas under her own name, Rita Bradshaw, since 1998. Since becoming a full-time writer Rita's life has been transformed, she has been able to give up her part time secretarial job to write full time and her husband Clive, has also given up his job to become her manager. She has found her occupation one of pure joy and often surprised when her characters develop a mind of their own but she loves exploring what makes people tick and finds the old adage "truth is stranger than fiction" to be absolutely true. Her Mills & Boon books have attracted fans in more than 25 countries around the world. She would love to hear from any readers care of her books.
