Mary Brock Jones Quotes

Mary Brock Jones
  • Mary Brock Jones

  • Born: in New Zealand.

  • Description: Mary Brock Jones, author, lives in Auckland, New Zealand, but her childhood years in the stunning Otago region of the South Island live on in the romantic adventures of her heroes and heroines.
    When not office bound or being towered over by four grown sons, much to their endless amusement, she writes historical romance and science fiction.
    She grew up in a land where history marches alongside farms, stunning tourist vistas and the entrepeneurial endeavours of the modern day. The love of historicals was born in the pages of great books by such as Georgette Heyer and Dorothy Dunnett; the science fiction and love of the environment came from playing with the world around her, and from writers such as Isaac Asimov and Anne McCaffrey.
    Her parents introduced her to libraries and gave her a farm to play on, where trees became rocket ships and rocky outcrops were ancient fortresses. Is it any wonder she became a writer?”
