Clova Leighton

Biography

A full-time resident of London, Clova Leighton admits to being older than thirty-nine and less than fifty. She feels she is at a perfect age to embrace life.

Historical Regencies and Romances, the Victorian Era, and works about the Roman Empire are her favourite periods about which to write and read. She also enjoys browsing through antique jewelry, swimming, flower arranging, or listening to music. Her own favourite authors are Georgette Heyer and Norah Lofts

Her job in administration does not allow as much freedom as she would like for her writing or her hobbies, but Clova makes the most of her limited time. She says she could spend hours researching her novels. Her fascination with the early 1800s and Napoleon's Court clearly shines through in A Court Lady.
