Tribute to Pamela Cleaver
We are very sorry to have to tell you that Pam has died.
Pam was a huge supporter of the Regency romance. Through her work with the Romantic Novelists' Association and the Historical Novel Society, she did a great deal to raise its profile. Her membership of this blog was the latest example of her dedication to a genre she loved.
Pam was a gifted writer. She had had many children's books published, and her book, How to Write Children's Books, was - and still is - a bestseller.
She had always loved Regencies, stemming from her love of Georgette Heyer, and she recently turned to writing them.
Her first Regency romance, The Reluctant Governess, is a perfect example of the traditional Regency. Its lively characters are embroiled in an adventurous story as the heroine tries to discover the identity of the leader of a band of smugglers. All the while, she knows the outcome might lead to heartache, as one of the contenders for the role is a man she finds very attractive . . .
The Reluctant Governess encapsulates the wit and sparkle of a traditional Regency, together with a satisfying love story - the Regency at its best.
We will miss her.
