Jeffery Farnol has of recent years ranged far from the Kent and Sussex of the Regency period which live so bravely in the pages of "The Broad Highway" and "The Amateur Gentleman."

His host of readers will be delighted to know that in this latest novel "A Jade Of Destiny" he has turned to that Merrie England he has made indisputably his own, and has given us a glowing romance of the days of Queen Bess—a romance dealing to some extent with one of the many plots against the life of the great Queen. Two contrasting love stories are woven through this swift-moving, colorful narrative and, as may be expected in a Farnol novel, the drama rises chapter by chapter to the ultimate climax.

Author Bio for Farnol, John Jeffery

Author Image

Jeffery Farnol (10 February 1878 – 9 August 1952) was a British writer since 1907 until his death, known for writing more than 40 romance novels, some formulaic and set in the Georgian Era or English Regency period, and swashbucklers, he with Georgette Heyer founded the Regency romantic genre.

He published his first romance novel My Lady Caprice in 1907. The success of his early novels led Farnol to become a professional writer. He produced around 40 novels and volumes of stories, and some non-fiction and children's books. His last book was completed by his second wife Phyllis.

Two of his early books, The Amateur Gentleman and The Broad Highway, have been issued in a version edited by romance novelist Barbara Cartland. The Amateur Gentleman was adapted for British film in 1920 and 1936, American film in 1926.--Wikipedia.
