A Chapter of the Romantic Novelists' Association in the heart of England


Successful in many sub-genres, all the members of Writing from the Heart write novels that deal, in one way or another, with love.

As every bookseller and librarian knows, love sells.

The members of Writing from the Heart like to help it sell that bit better. Want an interview? A library talk? Book signing? A lively panel for your literary festival?
