Historical Fiction Author

Val McBeath. Historical Fiction Author







I didn’t ever envisage being an author, and certainly not of historical fiction. As I researched my Family History, however, there was something about the unfolding story that compelled me to take this leap in to the unknown. Initially I wrote for my own benefit but after much deliberation I decided the story needed to be told.

That was back in 2010/11. I’m currently revising and editing the novel, which has turned into a series, and have just completed a short story prequel called Condemned by Fate.

Outside of writing I am a scientist by training and have worked for the pharmaceutical industry for many years. I was born and raised in Liverpool but now live in Cheshire with my husband, two daughters and cat. In addition to Family History my interests include rock music and Liverpool Football Club.

The Ambition & Destiny Series is set in Birmingham (UK) between 1846 and 1890 and although inspired by the information I uncovered, it is very much a work of fiction.
