About the Author

Author Beth Andrews
Author Beth Andrews
Beth Andrews
 (the pseudonym of Paul Bethel) is a native of The Bahamas. Beth learned to read at an early age and began to write almost as soon as she could hold a pencil. Her first job was on the editorial staff of a local newspaper, where she also edited two books produced by their printing section. It was an invaluable experience. She's been an accountant at a furniture store, office manager of a natural health clinic, and assistant manager at a music store, among other misadventures. 

Having discovered Georgette Heyer and Jane Austen in her late teens, she thought she might try her hand at writing tales set in the Regency period. Publishers took notice and she earned her first check for a short story. Novels soon followed, and she is now working on her seventh book. 

Apart from fiction, she also writes (under her real name) articles and essays for Jane Austen's Regency World magazine and occasional short stories and silly song lyrics. 

In her spare time, she enjoys gardening, the beach, and singing in her local church.
