Heyeroes and Heyeroines with Jane Holland and Alison Bonomi

Heyer Today Episode 5 alison

This week we look at Heyer’s treatment of her heroes and heroines and unpick why she was largely ignored by the literati. Our guests are two people who could definitely fall into that category:

Alison Bonomi of the LBA literary agency and poet and novelist Jane Holland. With Charlotte Lamb as her mum, Jane knows all about the impact of a literary legacy.

Join Sara-Mae as she talks to them about Heyer’s lasting impact on the Regency romance genre, as well as what it’s like to live in the shadow of a famous author…

Better the Devil’s Cub you know…

khalid

This week, bass player and teacher, Khalid Ham, joins us to talk about one of Heyer’s most popular books: Devil’s Cub. As he’s the same age as Vidal, Sara-Mae quizzes him on the similarities between himself and the hot-headed hero.

Plus, we journey to 1920s Africa, as Georgette and Ronald visit Tanganyika on one of Ronald’s ill-fated mining excursions. As a rhino crashes into camp, Georgette rushes into the danger zone…

Our fantastic voice talent includes Sarah Golding (sites.gravyforthebrain.com/website/sarahofgolding/), Helen Davidge and Karim Kronfli (podchaser.com/creators/karim-kronfli-107ZzkFiMb).

Coming up…episode 5 featuring Jane Holland and Alison Bonami on Heyeroes and Heyeroines!

Episodes 1-3 of new pod Heyer Today is well and truly launched!

We’re so excited about our fab new podcast being out.

Not only did we release our amazing Stephen Fry interview as an early Xmas treat, we’ve now started releasing our eps on a weekly basis until mid way through the season (episode 12) when we’ll take a little break.

This week we talk to Emma Darwin. She’s the only author to be simultaneously listed for the Commonwealth Writers’ Best First Book, AND the Romantic Novelist’s Association Book of the Year.

Emma Darwin

Emma Darwin, our guest for episode 3

And she has one other small detail about her ancestry that people tend to fixate on… yes, she is Charles Darwin’s great-great granddaughter. But she’s so much more than that; an accomplished novelist and teacher, as well as a judge on several writing awards (the Crowns in particular).

So we were delighted to be able to chat to her about all manner of things relating to Heyer’s craft, how to write historical fiction and the importance of forgetting your research in order to make a story sing.

Last week our first book club episode dropped, featuring our two potential Heyer lovers, and it was just as brilliant as we’d hoped, even though, alas, one of them was not converted. You’ll have to listen to find out which of these two gorgeous gals it was…

They joined me in reading one of Heyer’s best loved books: These Old Shades. Want to hear what we thought? Join our book club by checking out our reading list here.

Next week is another book club episode – we’re discussing Devil’s Cub – do read it so you can comment, and if you enjoy the pod, please RATE, REVIEW AND SUBSCRIBE!

Love,
