Caroline Roberts - book author
Family, friends, food, a glass of bubbly and, of course, a good book make me smile. I love writing emotional stories about love, loss, betrayal, and family, that explore how complex and yet beautiful love can be. I also like to write romantic comedy, letting the characters have a bit of flirty fun too! I believe in following your dreams and working hard towards them, which led me to Harper Impulse (Harper Collins) and a publishing deal (woop!) after many years of writing. Stunning Northumberland is my home – sandy beaches, castles and gorgeous countryside that have inspired my writing.
Caroline Roberts is the author of books: The Cosy Teashop in the Castle, The Cosy Christmas Teashop, Rachel’s Pudding Pantry, The Cosy Christmas Chocolate Shop, My Summer of Magic Moments, The Torn Up Marriage, Christmas at Rachel’s Pudding Pantry, The Cosy Seaside Chocolate Shop, Summer at Rachel’s Pudding Pantry (Pudding Pantry, Book 3), La piccola bottega del tè / I nostri momenti magici / Un bacio nella piccola bottega del tè
