Carole Mortimer (born 1960 in England) is a popular British writer of over 150 romance novels since 1978. She was one of Mills & Boon's youngest authors, and now is one of their most popular and prolific authors.

Biography[edit]

Carole Mortimer was born about 1960 in a very rural hamlet in the east England, and she had two brothers.[1] She studied only one year of nursing, and ended up working in the computer department of a well-known stationery company, where she started to write her first manuscript.[1]

The manuscript was rejected by Mills & Boon, but the second was accepted and was published in 1978 as The Passionate Winter.[1] She became one of the youngest and most prolific Mills & Boon's authors. She celebrated the publication of her 100th book, 20 years after her debut, and 30 years after this, she published her first historical novels, in the Mills & Boon Historical series.

Carole married to Peter, father to two children, they had four sons more, and now the family is formed by six children (with 22 years of difference between the first-born and the unexpected youngest child.[2]
