I qualified as a Lawyer in England and joined a large London law firm.
Romance is hardwired into my DNA so my novels include a strong romantic theme. However, I broke out of the romance bubble with one (you’ll see which one when you visit the Books page on my website) which is a quirky departure in style and content.
I've also authored several short stories that feature on my blog http://www.serenafairfax.com/serena_fairfax_author_blog/

Apart from writing and reading (all kinds of books), a few of my favorite things are collecting old masks, singing (in the rain) and exploring off the beaten track.
I'm a member of the Romantic Novelists Association, which is a very supportive organization. My golden retriever, Inspector Morse, who can't wait to unleash his own Facebook page, and I divide our time between London and rural Kent. (Charles Dickens said: Kent, sir. Everybody knows Kent. Apples, cherries, hops and women).

Little does Gemma know that the identity of the attractive mystery man who saved her and her motorbike from near disaster in a raging storm will only be revealed in very different circumstances after her desperate dash to her critically ill uncle's bedside.
In this wry, comic entertainment set in the early 1980s it’s just three years since art historian Anthony Blunt was publicly unmasked in 1979 as the fourth man in a ring of British spies that had worked for the Soviet Union as KGB operatives.
