Paddy Austin


I am a New Zealander indulging my love affair with the UK, by living and working in England for a few years. I love historical fiction, and am particularly interested in the lives of women who have acted against the constraints imposed on them by the times in which they live.

I also write about my travels, and enjoy entertaining people with my stories. I have also been known to write doggerel ditties for friends who reach various milestones.

I'm living the dream in Oxfordshire, and hope people will enjoy my writing.

When two well-born women run away from their homes in Kilkenny to live together, the genteel world of 18th century Ireland is scandalised. Based on a true story, Sarah & Eleanor is a tale of betrayal, seduction, loneliness and desire. But mostly, it is a story of a love that endures through hardships and scandal, and leaves a legacy of achievement still admired today.
