What a delight – thank you SO much! The talks were fabulous, and I can’t believe such great content was generated, when you’ve already had previous Heyer conferences. I can only imagine the topics covered in earlier presentations.”

Those who love the novels of Jane Austen always think of her characters when we tread the streets of Bath, but for some of us there are other characters who come to mind as well – the delightful fictional creations of Georgette Heyer. Many of her books are set in Bath and she uses the city and its prestigious and not-so-salubrious addresses with the same skill as did Jane Austen. Heyer gives readers a greater range of locations, so from York and Harrogate in the north, down to Rye in Kent, it is possible to find places and buildings that appear in her fiction.

I find that Georgette Heyer fans are often shy about publicly admitting their love for her books. Perhaps this is because they are sometimes met by ignorant readers stating ‘Oh, she’s just Mills & Boon’. This is such a mistaken view! Heyer was a superbly skilled novelist and has never been beaten in the genre, in spite of thousands of imitations. Her books have never been out of print. Heyer admirers include Stephen Fry, A.S. Byatt, Margaret Drabble, Emma Darwin, Elly Griffiths, William Golding, and many more illustrious readers and writers. I am proud to share my love of Heyer’s novels and to be Lady Patroness of a society that bears her name.
