After working in publishing, Jennie Walters began to dream up her own stories over ten years ago. She was partly inspired to write the 'Swallowcliffe Hall' series by visits to beautiful old English country houses, and partly by a silver housekeeper's chatelaine she found when clearing out her late father-in-law's flat. As a teenager, she spent a couple of years at a clifftop boarding school converted from a Victorian mansion, with a huge marble staircase and a collection of stuffed birds in glass cases.
She now lives with her husband in London. Visit Jennie's website, http://www.jenniewalters.com, for fascinating insights into English country houses and the servants and families who live in them, original photographs from Victorian times, biographical information and lots more!
