Valerie Thornhill is known internationally as an art historian but has now fulfilled a long-held ambition to move into the world of fiction.

Her first work of fiction was The Children of Kumbhalgarh, a diverse collection of non-autobiographical short stories inspired by her extensive travels and friends around the world.

This success was followed by The Tycoon’s Tale, a modern version of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, telling with humour and insight a compelling story of a multi-millionaire who is forced to question his role as an international financier and his neglect of family life.

Cynthia Loves Her Fiat 500 is a brief story which brings the heady atmosphere of 1960s Rome vividly to life through the eyes of two young English girls.

In Restoration, a compelling drama of love, loss and reconciliation, won the People’s Book Prize for fiction. Valerie’s latest work 1955 The Summer When… is available from Amazon
