Miss Paltry's Baby Swap by author Jennifer Ryan

 

Born in a village in Kent, just south of London in the UK, Jennifer's childhood was one of gallivanting around the countryside, often on bikes, climbing trees, cobbling dams over trickling streams, launching attacks on neighborhood factions, and eating cheese and tomato rolls in red telephone boxes to shelter from the rain. It is these memories, the pale English sunshine, the scent of lavender, honeysuckle, rose mingling with freshly cut grass, the sound of birds and bees and balls on tennis courts, that fill in the background of her stories, forming a full set of a living, moving world.

 

After school and college, she worked as an editor for nonfiction books in London, and as her editing and writing became stronger, she began to thread her way into writing fiction. But it was once she married and moved to Washington, DC, that she began to write voraciously, and when she took time off work to have children, she found the space and time to write her first novel, The Chilbury Ladies’ Choir. It took five years of hearty researching, writing, and reworking.

 

Jennifer's second novel, The Spies of Shilling Lane, came in a great big sudden thwack of inspiration. The entire novel, complete with those larger-than-life characters, simply arrived in her mind. She wrote the first draft in just six amazing months, glued to her trusty laptop, unable to wait to see what was going to happen next.

 

 

The Spies of Shilling Lane is once again published by Crown Publishing, part of the Penguin Random House Group, and is due to come out in hardback on June 4th, 2019. Please go to your local bookstore or Amazon and pre-order a copy today.
