Jemima Brigges

IMG_9107 - Copy

As an exiled Salopian, Jemima looks on her nursing and midwifery career as an apprenticeship for the love of her life. She started writing at the age of eight, but set it aside to study historical facts, names, and dates by rote; discover historical fiction in the school library, and later undertake a fascinating family history project, which encompassed the landed gentry and working classes. With a paternal great-great grandmother born in 1753, and a grandfather in 1826; Jemima has a real feeling for the Georgian era in which they lived.

Impossible, you may say – it is nevertheless true.
