Sally Beauman was an English author of fiction. She also went by the pen name of Vanessa James.

She was born in the United Kingdom on July 25, 1944, in Devon, England. She passed away on July 11, 2016.

Beauman did well in the fiction market and had both commercial and critical success with her books. Under James, she first came out with the 1982 novel The Dark One. This would be followed by several more novels, including The Fire and the Ice, The Devil’s Advocate, and more. She also wrote books such as 1987’s Destiny, the 1990 novel Dark Angel, and several others, including the Lovers and Liars series. Many of her books have reached best selling status all over the world and have been translated into multiple languages.

Beauman’s maiden name before she was married was Sally Kinsey-Miles. She attended Girton College in Cambridge, where she studied English literature and graduated with her M.A. She would then go on to marry her husband, Christopher Beauman, who worked as an economist. They moved after her graduation to the United States.

Sally lived in America for three years in Washington, D.C., and New York. She also traveled during that time. She would start her American career working as a journalist. The New York magazine had just launched and she worked in the associate editor position. Even though she returned to England she continued to generate content for the magazine.

Her marriage to Christopher ended in 1971. She would marry again. In 1970 she met the actor Alan Howard for an interview for The Telegraph Magazine. They would meet again the next year and had a long relationship culminating in a 2004 marriage. They had a child together, a son named James, and grandchildren. Howard would pass away in 2015.

She has had a fantastic career as critic, journalist, and author. She would be made the editor for the former Queen Magazine, now Harper’s & Queen, their youngest editor in history to that point. Beauman also had her writing recognized when she won the Catherine Pakenham Award. Her work has been featured in a variety of magazines and newspapers in the United Kingdom and United States.

Beauman started writing romantic novels under her pen name of Vanessa James for Mills & Boon. In 1987, she would finally write a book under her own name. It would be Destiny, for which she got an advance that broke records. The book sold well. She would go on to write more novels, such as Rebecca’s Tale. She became a Whitbread Prize judge in 2000 for that year in the category of Best Novel.

Beauman is the author of the Lovers and Liars series, also known as the ‘Journalists’ series of fictional novels. The trilogy kicked off in 1994 with the publication of the debut fictional book, Lovers and Liars. That was followed in 1996 by the sequel, Danger Zones. The next year saw the third and final novel of the trilogy, Sextet. The book is also known by the alternate title, Deception and Desire. This is a romantic series that is full of secrets and drama.

Lovers and Liars is the first novel in the series by the same title. When a blonde woman who is beautiful and dressed well sends four parcels out on a cold morning in January, it’s clear that she is not the person that she claims she is. The parcels that were sent out were identical, and all on their way to different cities. One by one, they show up in London, New York, Paris, and Venice.

Different people open their parcels to find different things. The Paris package is opened by Pascal Lamartine, a photographer, who finds a silk black women’s glove, scented and very off putting. Gini Hunter is the daughter of a famed journalist and opens the package in London to find contents that are threatening.

Soon Gini’s editor gives the story to her and Pascal for a piece that could be promising. There is so much to delve into and the story is so juicy with potential as well as scandal that if it’s printed, it’s sure to be life-ruining. The piece is about the United States Ambassador John Hawthorne, a charming man who represents America to Great Britain.

Now it’s up to the reporter and the photographer to find out more about his life and the truth about it, which appears to be ever-changing. Hawthorne is part of a wealthy and famous family in America. He could have easily gone into politics, but took a diplomatic position instead. On top of that, his beautiful wife Lise is great with the media, is involved in society and charity, and is generally chic.

It appears that now she might even be generating rumors regarding her spouse. Gini and Pascal are getting into the story, but the one that they end up writing may be so dark and complicated with betrayal, desires, and more that they might be in over their heads. The two must also contend with their own romantic history.

As they delve deeper into the world of the rich and powerful, full of privilege and secrets, the two must decide whether it’s worth risking their well being to complete this story. Are the two still passionate for each other? Find out in this captivating first novel of the series by Sally Beauman!

Danger Zones is the second novel in the Lovers and Liars trilogy, also known as the Journalists series of fiction. If you loved the first book, check out this exciting sequel.

Danger zones are where the collision of secrets, sex and sin come together. Enter into the English Cotswolds, where two girls in their teens and dressed up in punk attend a late night party. Star, a young man, promises drugs, music, and dancing. Tonight he has the White Dove pill that promises a fantastic high.

It appears he also has a plan that could spell danger for attenders of the party. Also present is Maria Cazarès, known as an enigmatic, passionate legend. Her partner Jean Lazare keeps her safe, and she only has a few people in her circle. However, one of them is Star.

When two journalists, an editor and investigative reporter Gini Hunter, start to smell a scandal, they’re all over it. They’re fighting on how they should cover it, igniting desire along the way. Can they fight the feeling long enough to get a clutch story? Find out in Danger Zones!
