Philippa Gregory

“Gregory has launched herself into a popular period and produced something with that most underrated of virtues: readability” – The Times.

Philippa Gregory was born in Kenya. When Gregory was two years old, her family moved to England. She was a “rebel” at school, but eventually decided to go to University and was educated at the University of Sussex. She worked in BBC radio for two years before attending the University of Edinburgh, where she earned her doctorate in 18th century literature.  Gregory, who has taught at the University of Durham, University of Teesside, and the Open University, was made a Fellow of Kingston University in 1994.

Her work, which has always been popular, has come to greater prominence after being made into a movie.
