Anne Weale, Romance Grande Lady Dies

Anne Weale, a/k/a Andrea Blake, author of nearly 90 contemporary romance novels and a great lady in the genre has died. She was born in England where she started writing short stories for magazines and then became a reporter.

Her debut novel Winter is Past, written in 1956, tells a story that captures the passion felt by the characters while never slipping into overtly sexual writing. Although she didn’t write specifically for a Christian readership, her books had a quiet dignity.

She wrote over forty books for Harlequin, writing both series and single title romance novels. An enthusiastic traveller, many of her romances had authentic foreign settings.
