About the Author
Born in London, Karen Bowman became an adoptive 'Essex Girl' at the tender age of ten. She has blended her love of history with her knowledge of the county, and has published numerous articles and stories on a variety of historical subjects. The idea for this, her first book, grew out of one such feature, 'Romantic Essex Girls'. Through her research, she has re-discovered and given new life to a great many Essex women, both renowned and unknown. Karen Bowman is married and lives near the South East Essex coast with her family.
