Erica James is he author of fifteen bestselling novels, including  Gardens of Delight which won the 2006 Romantic Novel of the Year Award, and Sunday Times top ten bestsellers The Queen of New Beginnings and Promises, Promises.

With an insatiable appetite for other people's business, Erica will readily chat with strangers in the hope of unearthing a useful gem for her writing. She finds it the best way to write authentic characters for her novels, although her two grown-up sons claim they will never recover from a childhood spent in a perpetual state of embarrassment at their mother's compulsion. Erica now divides her time between Cheshire and Lake Como in Italy, where she strikes up conversation with unsuspecting Italians. 


  • Just back from watching #Dunkirk What a film! Easily the standout film of the year for me. Quite extraordinary. Go see it!

    @allisonltdf Yes! I checked my photos of the garden from last year and the tomatoes were ready late July and August…

    @juliecusack @orionbooks Not until next January, I'm afraid.
