Anne Mather is the pseudonym used by Mildred Grieveson (born 10 October 1946 in England, UK), a popular British author of over 160 romance novels. She also signed novels as Caroline Fleming and Cardine Fleming.

Mildred Grieveson began to write down stories in her childhood years. The first novel that she actually finished, Caroline (1965), was also her first book to be published. Her novel, Leopard in the Snow (1974), was developed into a 1978 film.[1]

Biography[edit]

Personal life[edit]

Mildred Grieveson was born on 10 October 1936 in England. She always wanted to write, and for years she wrote for her own pleasure. She had written all through her infant and junior years and on into her teens, the stories changing from children's adventures to torrid gypsy passions. Her mother used to gather these up from time to time, when her bedroom became too untidy, and disposed of these manuscripts.[2]

Mildred married very young and became a housewife. Her husband suggested that she ought to send one of her stories to a publisher, but she had never finished one of her stories. Published at 19, she was newly married, and her daughter was just a baby, when she juggled her household chores and scribbled away in exercise books every chance she got.[3] Now, she has two adult children, a son and a daughter, and two grandchildren, Abigail and Ben.[2]

Writing career[edit]

With her husband's encouragement, she finally finished a manuscript, Caroline. When she was only 19, in 1965, Mills & Boon published Caroline, and this became her first published book, signed under the pseudonym Anne Mather.[2]

"In fact her first five books were first published in hardback by Robert Hale Ltd, London although Mills & Boon later published these in paperback.

The first novel to be issued entirely through M&B was Dangerous Enchantment in May 1969. (ref. Fantastc Fiction website)."

In 1973, she became a launch author for the new Harlequin Presents line of category romance novels. Harlequin Presents books were more sensual than the previous line, Harlequin Romance, under which Anne Mather had been published. She was chosen to be a launch author because she, along with Violet Winspear and Anne Hampson were the most popular and prolific of Harlequin's authors.[4]

Her novel, Leopard in the Snow (1974), was developed into a 1978 movie.[1]
