About Mel Penrose
Mel Penrose is the pseudonym of writing partners Mike Truscott and Francesca Hanikova. They met in 1982 when Francesca joined the Falmouth Packet newspaper in Cornwall as a trainee journalist and Mike was her supervising chief reporter. After several years in newspaper journalism, both went on to successful careers in public relations but continued to write - and stayed in touch. Meeting up to enjoy another shared passion - walking the Cornish coastal path - Francesca persuaded Mike to dust off an unfinished draft for a story, Lottery Loveboat was finally written and found a publisher, and Mel Penrose was born.
