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.

In 2012 she was recognised by Queen Elizabeth II for her 'outstanding service to literature'. In 2014 she received a Pioneer of Romance Award from Romantic Times in the US.[2]

In 2015 she started writing her first indie series called Alpha, aswell as her Harlequin Mills & Boon books. And on the 15th March 2015 she published her 200th book, titled Shadow Alpha,[3] which was recognised, along with her other achievements by being awarded the 2015 RWA Nora Roberts Lifetime Achievement Award.[4]

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.[5]
