Hello. I'm Evonne Wareham and I write romantic thrillers and romantic comedy, with a touch of crime, for award winning UK independent publishers, Choc-lit. Writing in the sunshine and in the shadows.
I like to think that I write books that are exciting, romantic and glamorous - a shot of escapism when the world looks drab and grey. They are also sometimes a bit scary.
After a career in local government in London, I’m now back in my home town, on the coast of South Wales, living near the beach. I like to write about memorable locations, so both big cities and beaches feature in my books. Also sunshine, food, art, architecture, gardens, pretty clothes, shoes, very nasty villains, heroes with a dark past and independent heroines who find themselves in difficult and sometimes dangerous situations. And, of course, they’re love stories. They always have a happy ending.
