Hilary Green is a trained actress and spent many years teaching drama. Among her star pupils was the latest James Bond, Daniel Craig. She also ran a Youth Theatre Company, one of the members of which was the now acclaimed theatre director, Christopher Luscombe. She has always written, producing novels, scripts for the BBC, and short stories, one of which one the Kythira Prize awarded by the Historical Novel Society. She even wrote the book and lyrics for a school musical, which she also produced. She loves all forms of theatre, including opera and ballet. This is probably 'bred in the bone' as both her parents were in what theatre people always refer to as 'The Profession'. Her father was a singer, trained for opera in Italy, while her mother was a ballet dancer. Their pre-war experiences in variety were the inspiration for the 'Follies' series of novels. Hilary regularly gives talks about her work to book groups and other organisations where she enjoys meeting her readers and hearing their reactions to the stories. When not writing she gardens, rides horses, walks in the countryside and plays bridge as well as enjoying travel and has been round the world several times. Hilary is married, with two grown-up sons and two grandchildren.
