About Gwen Madoc

I was born in Swansea, South Wales, UK and have lived in the city all my life. I love the place.
Although I have had many jobs, from copy typist to personal secretary, I've wanted to be a published writer more than anything else since I was a small child. Sometimes I can't believe my dream has come true.
I have written twelve novels. The first three for Piatkus Books were under the name of Doreen Edwards. I had six books published by Hodder & Stoughton under the name of Gwen Madoc. Three books were published with Severn House Publishers also under that name.
