Loretta Proctor was born in Cairo, Egypt to an English father and Greek mother. She won prizes in the 1970’s for essays and plays, then wrote specialised articles. She studied Freudian, then Jungian, psychology from an earlya ge and did a good deal of counselling work. Now retired with her husband to Malvern, Worcestershire, she delights in story telling, writes poetry and is pleased to be a distant relation of Elizabeth Barrett-Browning.
Loretta Proctor won prizes for stories and plays in the 1970s, but put writing aside for many years. Now back to writing novels, her first book, The Long Shadow, was published in 2005. Her own interest in painting and a lifelong fascination with Pre-Raphaelite artworks led to her writing The Crimson Bed.
Loretta compares her books to those by Sarah Waters, Ruth Rendell and Tracy Chevalier.
