Short biography
Freya North was born on 21 November 1967 in London, England, UK. She gave up a PhD scholarship to write her first novel, Sally. For 4 years she turned deaf ears to parents and friends who pleaded with her to ‘get a proper job’. She went on the dole and did a succession of freelance and temping jobs to support “writing days” every now and then. In 1996 she approached one of the UK’s top literary agents, Jonathan Lloyd at Curtis Brown Ltd. Lloyd took her on and put her work up for auction. 5 publishers enter a bidding war for Freya’s books. A three-book deal for a six figure sum is the result. Published since 1996 to great acclaim. She lives in London with her family. In 2008 Freya won the Romantic Novel of the Year award by the Romantic Novelists' Association with Pillow Talk.
