Joanna Trollope biography and information

Novelist Joanna Trollope was born on 9 December 1943, and was educated at Reigate County School for Girls and St. Hugh's College, Oxford. She worked for the Foreign Office and had various teaching jobs before becoming a full-time writer. She is the author of several bestselling novels, including Girl from the South (2002), the story of an American Southerner who comes to London to get away from the family and social pressures of her home in South Carolina. Brother and Sister (2004), is a novel which explores themes of loyalty, adoption and the nature of identity.

Joanna is also the author of several historical novels (under the name of Caroline Harvey) and of a history of women in the British Empire entitled Britannia's Daughters (1983). Her books have been translated into more than twenty languages. A number of her books have been adapted for television.

Joanna is a descendant of Anthony Trollope, well known as the creator of The Barchester Chronicles, and perhaps less well known as the inventor of the modern post box. She was awarded an OBE in 1996 and divides her time between London and Gloucestershire, for which county she was made a Deputy Lieutenant in 2002.
