The author describes her sister Moira as her soulmate. No one believes her when she tells them the sisters have never quarreled. They spent their days creating fictional histories and families for the few dolls they had.

They would also stay up late at night, inventing new adventures for the dolls. Their mother would often interrupt their conversations by calling up and telling them to go to sleep.

Balogh and Moira read voraciously. The author remembers consuming every Enid Blyton volume they could find. The sisters promised one another that they would become authors in the future.

They both achieved their dreams. Although, it took a while. Balogh’s parents were very progressive. Even though many people did not see the point in sending girls to school, the couple encouraged the girls to take their education seriously.

They also wanted Balogh and Moira to seek out satisfying careers. Balogh wanted to teach, which is why she moved to Saskatchewan in Canada.

She had secured a two-year teaching contract. The last thing she expected was for her blind date with Robert Balogh to lead to marriage. Before she knew it, the pair had started a family, which kept the author too busy to pursue her writing dreams.

Sian, their youngest child, was six years old when Balogh decided to add writing to her evening schedule. At the time, it was just a hobby. By then, she had already developed a healthy obsession with Georgette Heyer.

Balogh was enchanted by Heyer, and she couldn’t wait to tell stories similar to those Heyer had written in her Regency romance novels. Once supper was done and the dishes were washed, the author would sit at her kitchen table and write in longhand.

It took her three months to finish ‘A Masked Deception.’ Unfortunately, she had no idea what to do next. She wanted to submit the manuscript to a publisher but did not know where to find one.

But rather than giving up, she picked a novel, found the address for a publisher inside the cover, and mailed the book. Naturally, because she was an amateur, Balogh made a mistake.

She mailed the manuscript to a distribution center. But the person who found the manuscript read it, loved it, and sent it to the relevant offices in New York. The author received a two-book contract two weeks later.

In a way, Balogh succeeded specifically because she had no idea what she was doing.

Mary Balogh Awards

Balogh has won All About Romance Reader, RT Reviewers Choice, and Romance Readers Anonymous Awards.

Best Mary Balogh Books

The author wrote the first five books in her bibliography in longhand and with a typewriter. She finally switched to a computer with ‘The First Snowdrop.’ Balogh’s best books include:

Slightly Dangerous: Wulfric Bedwyn was back in town. The Duke of Bewcastle was expected to make an appearance at London’s most glittering social event. Every woman in London was determined to win him over.

But Wulfric had a reputation for being ice cold. Some people thought he was passionless. Others blamed his aloofness on a tragic love affair. Ultimately, no one expected Christine to catch his eye.

Strangely enough, she was the one woman that showed little interest in the duke. Wulfric was determined to make Christine his mistress. But the woman had no intention of making things easy for him.

Slightly Married

Colonel Lord Aidan was fiercely loyal. When a dying soldier asked him to protect her sister, Aidan was more than happy to oblige. However, Eve was different. She was too independent and headstrong.

More importantly, she had no interest in Aidan’s protection. But a dilemma was looming, one she couldn’t solve alone. A relative of the soldier wanted to throw Eve out of her home.

Aidan was more than happy to offer a helping hand. However, his solution was baffling. The colonel wanted to marry her. The fact that she did not love him made no difference. It would be a marriage of convenience, designed to save her home.
