From the British Council's Contemporary Writers site:
Novelist Joanna Trollope was born on 9 December 1943, and was educated at Reigate County School for Girls and St. Hugh's College, Oxford. She worked for the Foreign Office (1965-7) and held various teaching posts (1967-79), before becoming a full-time writer. She is the author of eleven bestselling contemporary novels.
Joanna Trollope is also the author of several historical novels (published under the name of Caroline Harvey) and of a study of women in the British Empire entitled Britannia's Daughters (1983). Her books have been translated into over twenty-five languages.
The Choir (1988), A Village Affair (1989), The Rector's Wife (1991) and Other People's Children (1998) have all been made into series for television.
Joanna Trollope is a member of the same family as Anthony Trollope, author of The Barchester Chronicles. She was awarded an OBE in 1996 and lives partly in London and partly in Gloucestershire, for which county she was made a Deputy Lieutenant in 2002.
