Author Code: EGHR

Born: Aug. 16, 1902 - Wimbledon, London, England

Died: Jul. 4, 1974 - London, England

Working on a story for her sick brother when she was 17, she prepared it for publication and The Black Moth was issued in 1921. She married George Ronald Rougier, a student at the Royal School of Mines, in 1925. Rougier traveled widely in his job as a mining engineer. The couple spent several years living in Tanganykia and Macedonia before returning to England in 1929. Heyer wrote historical romances covering mostly the Regency Period. In addition, she produced a number of thrillers in the detective genre. Due to tax problems, Heyer formed a limited liability company called Heron Enterprises around 1950 to receive payment for her works and royalties. Unfortunately, Heyer's accountants were inept and the tax department claimed she owed £20,000. Heyer fired the accountants. Her new accountants encouraged her to abandon Heron, which she did in 1968 for £85,000 and included the rights to 17 of her novels. There were numerous authors accused of plagiarism of Heyer's works including Barbara Cartland and Kathleen Lindsay. Beginning in the 1960s, Heyer's health became an issue, beginning with kidney stones and an infected mosquito bite. she suffered strokes in 1973 and early 1974. In May of 1974, she was diagnosed with lung cancer and she died later that year. Her works include The Transformation of Philip Jettan (1923), These Old Shades (1926), The Masqueradors (1928), The Devil's Cub (1932), The Convenient Marriage (1934), Regency Buck (1935), Faro's Daughter (1941), Arabella (1949), Duplicate Death (1951), Sprig Muslin (1956), Venetia (1958), Pistols for Two (1960), Black Sheep (1966) and Lady of Quality (1972).
