My Media and Publicity Bio

Before becoming a writer, Natasha Lester worked as a marketing executive for Harlequin in the UK, choosing pictures of handsome heroes for the covers of books, and then for L’Oreal in Australia, managing the Maybelline brand, where she possessed more shades of lipstick than anyone could ever wear. She then returned to university to study creative writing, completing a Master of Creative Arts at Curtin University as well as her first novel, What is Left Over, After, which won the TAG Hungerford Award for Fiction.

Her first historical novel, A Kiss from Mr Fitzgerald, was published in 2016, followed by Her Mother’s Secret in 2017, and The Paris Seamstress in 2018. She is now an internationally bestselling author, having decided that playing with words is more fun than experimenting with lipstick colours.

When she’s not writing books, she loves to collect vintage fashion, drink tea, read, travel, dream about Paris, and have fun with her three children. Natasha lives in Perth, Western Australia.
