Jones, Mary Brock
Mary Brock Jones lives in Auckland, New Zealand, but her childhood years in the stunning Otago region of the South Island live on in the romantic adventures of her heroes and heroines. When not office bound or being towered over by her four grown sons, much to their amusement, she writes historical romances and science fiction. Her romantic yearnings stem from those early years in a land where history still marches alongside modern farming, stunning tourist vistas and the entrepreneurial endeavours of the modern day. Her love of historicals was born in the pages of great books by writers such as Georgette Heyer and Dorothy Dunnett. Her parents introduced her to libraries and gave her a farm to play on, where trees became rocket ships and rocky outcrops were ancient fortresses. Is it any wonder she became a writer?
