Francesca Capaldi has enjoyed writing since she was a child, largely influenced by a Welsh mother who was good at improvised story telling. A history graduate and former teacher, she decided to turn her writing hobby into a career in 2006. She is a member of the Romantic Novelists' Association and the Society of Women Writers and Journalists. Each month she writes a competition post for the Romantic Novelists' Association blog.

Writing as both Francesca Capaldi and Francesca Burgess, she has had numerous short stories published in magazines in the UK and abroad, as well as articles in several magazines and newspapers. Her short stories have been included in the anthologies 100 Stories for Haiti, Diamonds and Pearls and 7 Food Stories from Rome. She's also been placed or shortlisted in a dozen national writing competitions.

Three pocket novels have been published by DC Thomson, one of which, Danger for Daisy, is available as an ebook.

Her World War 1 saga, Heartbreak in the Valleys, is published by Hera Books.

Francesca currently lives in Kent with her family and a cat called Lando Calrission.
