Evelyn Anthony began writing in 1949. First writing short stories for periodicals, she gained fame and success with her well-researched historical novels, being especially noted at the time for her original treatment of Anne Boleyn. Two of these novels became US Literary Guild Choices. Later, Anthony turned to writing thrillers and spy novels for which she won huge acclaim. Her 1971 book The Tamarind Seed was made into a film in 1974, starring Julie Andrews and Omar Sharif. She adapted well to the end of the Cold War and continued writing thrillers set in the post-1990 reality. Evelyn’s books have been translated into nineteen languages and have invited comparison to the writings of Ted Allbeury, Colin Forbes and Clare Francis. She lives in Essex.
