Cornish born author, B.D. Hawkey, can trace her Cornish roots as far back as the 18th century. This background and heritage has given her an understanding and knowledge of Cornish rural life which is the inspiration for her writing, as are the many historical buildings, beautiful countryside and dramatic coastline that form the Celtic county

Following a fulfilling twenty-five year career as a nurse, a change in profession has finally allowed her time to write in her favourite genre ~ historical romance.

She likes her romance books to have a strong background story but at the centre is the unmistakable emotion, passion and even pain of loving someone.


She is married with two grown up children.
