Sunday Times Bestselling Author
for gritty heartwarming family sagas and compulsive historical fiction

Welcome to my website and thanks for calling in. I hope you’ll find something of interest about my books, and a little about me.

Copyright Freda Lightfoot, updated March  2015

I write family sagas set in the Lake District, Manchester, or Cornwall.

I also write historical romance, two time period stories, and historical biographies.

As you can see history is a passion of mine. I hope you enjoy my new title The Amber Keeper. It was great fun to write despite the challenge of learning about a different era and Russia. But then I love research.

If you have any comments or questions, or simply want to chat, don’t hesitate to get in touch. I really enjoy talking to readers on Facebook and Twitter.
