Lucilla Andrews

Lucilla Matthew Andrews Crichton (November 21 1919, Suez - October 3, 2006, Edinburgh) was a British romantic novelist as Lucilla Andrews.

She joined the British Red Cross in 1940 and later trained as a nurse at St Thomas' Hospital, London, during World War II.

She was a founder member of the Romantic Novelists' Association, which honoured her shortly before her death with a lifetime achievement award.

As a writer of thirty-five novels over the period 1954-96 she specialised in hospital romances. Her noms de plume included Diana Gordon and Joanna Marcus.

In late 2006, Lucilla Andrews' autobiography No Time for Romance became the focus of a posthumous controversy. It has been alleged that the novelist Ian McEwan plagiarized from this work while writing his highly-acclaimed novel, Atonement. McEwan has protested his innocence.
