After university, Joanna Trollope spent some time at the Foreign Office before becoming a teacher. She began writing 'to fill the long spaces after the children had gone to bed' and for many years combined her writing career with working as a teacher.
The common theme through all of her novels is the nature of relationships, particularly within families. Joanna's family is hugely important to her. She is the eldest of three, the mother of two daughters, stepmother of two stepsons, and is immensely enjoying being a grandmother.
Joanna Trollope has written eighteen bestselling novels, and has been appointed OBE for services to literature. She now lives in London, and still has the same core group of close friends she's had for the past thirty years.
