Penny is the doyenne of the modern blockbuster GLAMOUR


Hello Everybody,

It is wonderfully exciting for me to introduce my new book, A Perfect Heritage; it’s been a bit longer than usual, but I hope you’ll think it’s worth the wait.

The heritage in question is that of a legendary cosmetic company, the people who work within it and its survival. Founded in 1953, Coronation year, the House of Farrell has fallen on difficult times, and the family who still have control of it have been forced to look for help from an outside source. The power struggles between the matriarch Athina Farrell, still its figurehead, and the hyper cool and high-powered Bianca Bailey, moved in by the money men to save the company, is fought against a background of the glamour of the cosmetic industry.

It’s a business I know well, with its combination of glamour and big business, and indeed worked in for many years. It’s been a joy to return to it.

I do hope you enjoy reading the book as much as I enjoyed writing it.
