Romance Aloud

To mark the Diamond Anniversary of the Romantic Novelists’ Association in 2020, I produced and hosted a ten-part podcast series of interviews with prominent RNA authors.

In each episode I talk to an author about their own work, and ask them to chose and talk about a favourite author from the RNA’s 60 year history. You can hear the first seven episodes below:

It’s a fascinating insight into the writing process and business, and the benefits to authors of the RNA, as well as an excellent way to compile a reading list of recommended romance books published over the past 60 years.

Here is the full episode list:

Milly Johnson on Carole Matthews

Nicola Cornick on Mary Stewart

Lorna Cook on Rosamunde Pilcher

Sue Moorcroft on Christina Courtenay
