About the Author: Barbara Gaskell Denvil

Sumerford's Autumn Download Rating 3.2 Ð Barbara Gaskell Denvil I was born approximately two hundred years ago It sometimes feels that way in Gloucestershire, England, right in the heart of the Cotswolds After a few years, I moved to London and fell in love with the history which oozes through the old stones, and the medieval atmosphere leaks from the beautiful old buildings For many years, I walked the old cobbled lanes and researched the 15th century from original sources, and the books in the British Museum I worked there in the Department of Ancient Documents, a place which I adored, full of scrolls illuminated by medieval monks, and hordes of informative parchments.My father was an academic and playwright, my mother was a retired teacher, and my sister was an author of fantasy I had no other passion except the arts, and booksAlready a passionate reader half crazed by the avid consumption of literature, I had grown out of Enid Blyton when I was about six Next came a passion for Georgette Heyer, although far too young to understand romance Once again it was the historical details I loved and I moved quickly onto Shakespeare, Dorothy Dunnett, Tolkien, C.S Lewis and a host of others.I started writing Nonsense naturally But I kept it up and eventually write articles and short stories for current magazines and newspapers I was also a tutor for scriptwriting, and a reviewer for Books and Bookmen That kept me busy until I married A husband and three little girls including identical twins were a full time job, and for most of the time I also worked at secretarial jobs, keeping the threat of starvation at bay and paying for the baked beans.After leaving my husband, I started writing again but this time I was distracted by something different, as I had a wonderful 18 year romance with a man who lived on his yacht in the Mediterranean, sailing during spring, summer, and autumn, and exploring Europe by car in winter.My partner died, and I was bereft, deciding to come to Australia for a change instead of sitting around in stagnant tears Writing again, and seriously this time, I wrote full length books in all my favourite genres I was accepted by one of the big top 5 publishers, and two of my historical crime mysteries were published in the traditional manner However, although I was reasonably well paid and sold reasonably well, I also found myself disliking the control system I had to write as commanded, insert bucket loadsromance, accept covers I hated, and generally do as I was told.Now, happy and free, I self publish, and enjoy every minute of my writing I live in Australia, adore the weather, the birds and the wildlife, and live a placid life during the day and a wonderfully exciting one in my dreams at night.I have written fantasy and historical fiction Very different genres, but all are crime mysteries in one way or another I have almost finished my children s series Bannister s Muster series, for middle grade children , no crime here, but a vibrant mixture of history and fantasy After this is complete I am moving onto a series of modern crime mysteries, and I m looking forward to that.Writing is and always has been my passion, now that I am able to do this full time, I am in my element and life couldn t be better a littlesunshine might help though.
