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 many poems published under the names Bronwen Hughes and Bronwen Vizard.
All Bronwen’s earlier work was typed on an old fashioned typewriter, with several layers of carbon paper. ‘A Jewel for a Jacobite’, set in her native Wales, was written when technology was in its infancy. Having moved away for a while, Bronwen returned to South Wales in the 1960s and lived there surrounded by her family, which included six children, sixteen grandchildren and an increasing number of great-grandchildren.
Bronwen sadly passed away in 2016 and will very much be missed.
