Gwen Madoc writes Historical Romance and Family sagas and was first published in 1997 when she had two books out that year. She has had twelve books published..

Gwen is an avid reader and adores her Kindle. She likes murder mysteries and also science fiction. She reads Historical Romance and Family Sagas for entertainment and also to keep her eye on the competition! Gwen is interested in history, cosmology and research into human genes amongst other things. As a writer she is passionately interested in people.

"Editing and revising is a very enjoyable part of the process of writing," Gwen said. "It gives me a chance to bring the novel to the highest standard I can achieve. I intend to give my readers the best I can. They deserve it."

Apart from her print books, Gwen has written two new novels on A novel that she started in 2008 which she was unable to complete then has now been completed on Wattpad. POVERTY'S PRIDE is a Victorian historical romance. Gwen then complete a further novel, THE BARONET'S DAUGHTER a Regency Romance. Both these books have proved very popular with readers on Wattpad. Gwen is now starting a new book, a Western Historical; a big departure from her usual genre, THE SILVERADO - ROMANCE OF THE OLD WEST.

A new idea for a novel is like a little green shoot pushing its way up through the earth, this idea will grow (hopefully) into a many-branched tree.

Selecting a cast of characters for a new book is always interesting. Finding apt names for each of them is often time-consuming but well worth the effort. Once a character has a name they come alive and start to communicate with the author, which is exciting.

Gwen has also written a series of articles on the craft of creative writing under the name of Jaci Gwyn at:

Birth Place: Swansea,  UK

Accomplishments: Before being first published in 1997 when she had two books out that year, Gwen spent twelve years learning and honing her craft as a writer. They were twelve years well spent and the hard work finally paid off when she found an agent and then a publisher.
"There were many rejections during that time," Gwen says. "But I was determined to succeed as a writer. Each rejection gave me added strength because I believed in myself. After ten years I still do believe."

Gwen lives with her little Jack Russell dog named Monty, who is her constant companion, friend and guardian. "Monty keeps me active and gets me up early in the mornings," Gwen says with a smile. "Without him I would be very lazy!"

Previous to becoming a published writer Gwen was a Medical Secretary and has also worked in the Civil Service. She studied The Humanities with the Open University for five years. The years with the Open University opened her mind to so much. "I enrolled with the idea that I could become a better writer,' Gwen says. "And I believe the mind-expanding experience really worked."

Gwen believes that her greatest achievement is having twelve novels published and hopes for many more. "I love writing," Gwen says. "It is what I live for."

Gwen is proud of the books she has written and enjoyed the writing of them. It was hard work, but when a reader expresses pleasure from reading the books, Gwen feels all the hard work was very worth while. Gwen has recently completed two new novels on POVERTY'S PRIDE and THE BARONET'S DAUGHTER. She is currently engaged in writing a Western Historical entitled THE SILVERADO - ROMANCE OF THE OLD WEST. Being a writer is like being an entertainer. One writes mainly for the pleasure the stories will give to others. With completion of her twelveth novel Gwen has now fulfilled her current contract with her publishers.
