Bethany Askew – Author

Bethany Askew is the author of nine novels and is currently writing her tenth.

She approached Blue Poppy with two historical novels about Samuel Taylor Coleridge that she wished us to publish.

Three Extraordinary Years: The Coleridges at Stowey

The Two Saras: Coleridge in Cumbria

These fascinating books perfectly capture the life and times of Samuel Taylor Coleridge.

Bethany was born and brought up in Somerset and has lived there all her life. A Dispensing Optician by profession, she was able to fulfil her lifelong ambition to be a writer when she retired from employed work seven years ago. She is married and has four grown-up children and six grandchildren.
