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.
Her first published work was the short poem Taken which was shortlisted to represent and show case the talents of the south west of England. It was chosen for publication as one of a collection of poems from various poets for the book Bright Voices published by United Press Ltd in 2003.
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.
