Producing numerous novels over the years, she really sets herself apart, with her engaging, compelling, and extremely evocative style.

Mainly writing contemporary fiction and romance, Fern Britton’s books appeal to a modern wide-ranging audience. Good natured and easy to pick up, they’re simple to get into, yet difficult to put down, with their compellingly written storylines. The worlds that she creates are also well established, managing to create an ambiance that’s quite unlike any other. She really has a clear understanding for the audience, allowing them to fully immerse themselves, whilst also saying exactly what it is that she wants to say.

It’s also her characters that Britton is well known for as well, with leading protagonists that really resonate with the reader.

This approach to writing has allowed her to become highly successful both nationally and internationally, reaching a worldwide audience. With a lot more to come too, she has plenty more books set to be released in the near future, with a number of series as well.

Early and Personal Life

Born in 1957 on the 17th of July, Fern Britton was born and raised in Ealing, London, with her father the actor Tony Britton. Raised with a background in show-business, she’d come to understand it fast, as well as communicating ideas with increasingly large audiences. This would be something that would come to serve her well over the years, and something which would heavily inspire her work.

Attending Dr Challoner’s High School based in Little Chalfont in Buckinghamshire, she would later go on to train in stage management at the Central School of Speech and Drama. Working as a presenter on television, she would primarily appear on daytime TV, starting out as a newsreader and announcer. Currently still working and writing to this very day, she has a daughter, and was previously married to Phil Vickery the celebrity chef.

Writing Career

In 2011 Fern Britton would write her first novel, which would be titled ‘New Beginnings,’ and it would be a stand-alone romance novel. The following year in 2012 she would start her ‘Hidden Treasures’ series of romance novels, starting with the book also named ‘Hidden Treasures.’ These titles would fast see her becoming successful, as many would come to appreciate her as a fully fledged author in her own right.

She would also write a number of short-stories too, with ‘The Stolen Weekend’ being the first of these back in 2014. There would also be some non-fiction work with Britton offering recipes, including ‘Fern’s Family Favourites,’ which came out all the way back in 1998. Maintaining a strong brand and profile both online and off, she continues to write to this present day, with lots more still to follow.

Coming Home

Originally brought out back in 2018, this would come out on the 1st of January through the HarperCollins publishing label. It would be a stand-alone romance title with a self-contained narrative, making it an easy book to pick up and casual read. Later it was also released in an omnibus edition alongside ‘A Good Catch’ in 2020, which was a similar romance story in tone.

Following the death of her grandmother, Ella returns to the Cornish coast to collect herself, and deal with the grief. It’s here though, that she begins to find her home once again, returning to her past, as secrets begin to rise up once more. Previously Sennen had left as a single mother unable to deal with it all, and now she must come back to the children she left behind. Facing her mistakes, she hopes to reconnect with her daughter, and rectify the problems of of the past, as she finds herself coming home.

Spanning across three generations of family, this really works on a number of different levels, as it shows Fern Britton doing what she does best. Giving the reader a colorful cast of characters to enjoy, it’s richly immersive, allowing the audience to fully invest themselves in the action. The story itself is intriguing too, as it really keeps the reader guessing every step of the way, making for a very well written page turner.

Daughters of Cornwall

Initially released through HarperCollins once again, this was published in 2021 on the 29th of April to a great deal of acclaim. Providing another stand-alone romance, it’s similar to Fern Britton’s other books, but it also has some twists and turns of its own. Taking place in Cornwall in England, it’s a story with a lot to offer, and is a must for both fans of the author and the genre as a whole.

A family saga beginning at the end of the first and continuing through second world war, as it begins in 1918 with Clara Bolitho fighting for her family. Later in 1947 Hannah, Clara’s daughter, is falling in love for her very first time, but with the wake of World War Two underway, she must now protect her baby Caroline. Moving ahead to 2020, Caroline is living quietly on the Cornish coastline, but there’s devastating family secret that threatens to rear its head. Will she be able to get past it, can they all overcome this hurdle, and what will become of the daughters of Cornwall?

Running across generations yet again, Fern Britton delivers another well written and well plotted story, working on numerous different levels. Paying close attention to detail when it comes to historical accuracy too, it really allows the reader to feel as if they’re fully experiencing it themselves. Really easy to read with fun engaging characters, it’s expertly handled, continually keeping its audience guessing every step of the way.
