Jessica Hart was born in Ghana, and grew up around Africa, she has suffered from itchy feet ever since. She has traveled by Tanganyika, South Africa, Papua New Guinea, Oman, Australian Outback, Kathmandu, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iran, Turkey, Cameroon, Algeria, USA, Egypt, Kenya, France, Belize, Turkey, Sri Lanka, Spain, Italy, Greece… many of these countries have featured as settings in her books in one way or another. She obtained a degree in French from the University of Edinburgh, Scotland, where her mother continues living.

After some years spent working and traveling around the world, she stumbled into writing as a way of funding her Ph.D. in medieval history, obtained in 2004, and she is now a full-time author based in York, England dividing her time between Yorkshire and Wiltshire, where her partner, John, lives. The more she writes, the more interested she is in how and why romance works, and in spite of much grumbling about the writing process, suspects she is now hooked! Jessica has written more than 50 books and is winner of the two most prestigious awards in romance writing, a RITA® award for the best traditional romance of 2005, and the coveted Romance Prize, awarded by the U.K.'s Romantic Novelists' Association in 2006, an award for which she was also short-listed in 2007 and 2009.
