About the Author

Indulging Your Inner Aristocrat~ British Period Novels Meet Author Debra Brown I grew up with my nose in books. I loved mysteries and surprise endings. I especially loved the Victorian houses that my favorite sleuths tiptoed around in. In school, I was handed a copy of Great Expectations, which I could not put down. Miss Havisham was an incredible figure! For the rest of my life, I wanted to be a mouse in the wall watching her live her strange life. During my years of self employment in the jewelry field, I watched period movies while I worked on my creations. I was in love with the characters, the plots, the historical realities. I became acquainted with the rigidly structured class system, the customs of the times and the required polite behaviors with the policy of shunning anyone who stepped out of line. I ran out of movies. With the economic difficulties of recent years, my jewelry business slowed. I began to write my own little story as a hobby, never intending to publish it. It developed in my mind faster than I could get it down on my word processor, and I stayed up later than I should have typing away. It didn't let me sleep when I did go to bed! It developed so beautifully that I decided to put it out there into the world. I am grateful to those that have helped me in various ways with this happy project; you know who you are. I am thankful to World Castle for accepting my book for publication. And my second book is now keeping me from sleeping.
Always the perfect gift

Debra cut her teeth on the Bookhouse Books, which created a nagging longing to live in a land of castles and wear flowing gowns and exquisite headdresses. Though life kept her busy, she was eventually able to do so vicariously through the characters of her books.

Her first published novel, The Companion of Lady Holmeshire, is set in early Victorian England. Emma, a former servant girl, is chosen as companion to The Countess of Holmeshire and dragged along into polite society where she is sure to receive a rude reception.

Debra's work-in-progress, For the Skylark, is on the back burner but simmering slowly. She has spent more time on the development and running of a multi-author blog, English Historical Fiction Authors. The group posts a daily article on British history and has a weekly historical fiction giveaway. History lovers join us with their morning tea at

Shortly after the first anniversary of the blog, an author suggested the creation of a book composed of select posts. A year later, to celebrate the second anniversary on September 23, 2013, Castles, Customs, and Kings: True Tales by English Historical Fiction Authors, edited by Debra and the late M.M. Bennetts, was released. Volume II will be released on September 23, 2015, and we hope to continue the series.

You can chat with Debra about history and historical fiction and meet her author friends on Facebook at and at her Goodreads group, Historical Info for Historical Fiction Readers.

Debra is the President of the M.M. Bennetts Award for Historical Fiction Association which honors the author of an outstanding novel each year with a $500 USD prize. Winners are announced at the annual Historical Novel Society Conference. Learn more at
