Lucinda Riley was born in Ireland, and after an early career as an actress in film, theatre and television, wrote her first book aged twenty-four. Her novel Hothouse Flower (also called The Orchid House) was selected by the UK's Richard and Judy Book Club in 2011 and has been translated into thirty-four languages and sold over eight million copies worldwide. She is a New York Times and Sunday Times bestselling author. "
"Lucinda's novels include The Seven Sisters, a seven-book series telling the story of adopted sisters and based allegorically on the mythology of the famous star constellation. Book 1, The Seven Sisters, and Book 2, The Storm Sister, have been No. 1 bestsellers in Europe, and the rights to a multi-season TV series have already been optioned by a Hollywood production company. The Storm Sister has been nominated for the prestigious Premio Bancarella literary prize in Italy.

"A new contemporary novel The Olive Tree has just been published, set during one long hot summer in Cyprus, and based on a family holiday. Lucinda and her son Harry have personally narrated the audio book together. "
"She is also rewriting and releasing a number of books originally published when writing under her maiden name of Lucinda Edmonds, including The Italian Girl, The Angel Tree and in 2017, The Love Letter. "
"Lucinda lives with her husband and four children on the North Norfolk coast in England and West Cork, Ireland. "
"When not writing, travelling or running around after her children, she loves reading books that she hasn't written with a glass or two of Provençal rosé!
