Joanna Trollope has been writing for over thirty years and is well known for her enormously successful contemporary works of fiction. She has been described as one of the most insightful chroniclers and social commentators writing fiction today.

Joanna’s latest novel – Mum & Dad – will be published 5 March 2020
It tells the story of Gus and Monica who abandoned England 25 years ago to build a new life in southern Spain, starting a vineyard and a wine business. Then Gus, in his early 70s, has a sudden stroke, and his and Monica’s three adult children have to ride to the rescue. As these children descend on the bodega, each one has a different view of both the situation and its solution. Age-old resentments surface, aggravated by new and unbearable tensions. Can the family, as a family, ever survive?

After winning a scholarship to Oxford University, Joanna joined the Foreign Office and then became a teacher of English. She began writing “to fill the long spaces after the children had gone to bed” and for many years combined her writing career with working as a teacher.

She is now the author of over 20 highly acclaimed and bestselling novels, including The Rector’s Wife, Marrying the Mistress, Daughters in Law and City of Friends.
