Born and bred in Cardiff, South Wales, Bronwen started her career in The City Library during the 1940s. Since then, her writing career has spanned six decades. She has written over 400 short stories for magazines, and has had several novels and poems published under the names Bronwen Hughes and Bronwen Vizard. All of Bronwens earlier work was produced on a typewriter with several layers of carbon paper, while the production and re-printing of this book has utilised modern digital technology. A Jewel for a Jacobite is set in her native Wales. Having moved away from the area for a while, Bronwen returned to South Wales in the 1960s and still lives there surrounded by family, including six children, sixteen grandchildren, and an ever- increasing number of great-grandchildren. Bronwen sadly passed away in 2016 , and she will be sorely missed by her family and friends . Her words live on in this book.
