Mary Anne Yarde

Mary Anne Yarde is a multi-award-winning and bestselling author of Historical Fiction, as well as being an award-winning blogger. She studied History at Cardiff University and went on to study Equine Science at Warwickshire College. 

Mary Anne is a passionate advocate for quality Historical Fiction and founded The Coffee Pot Book Club in 2015. Mary Anne became a professional Editorial Reviewer in 2016. Mary Anne has worked closely with publishing houses, and authors (both traditionally and independently published) to successfully market their books. Mary Ann and Ellie established Yarde Book Reviews & Book Promotion to create a comprehensive book marketing company for all genres.

Ellie Yarde

Ellie Yarde is an author, reader, blogger, and Vine Amazon Reviewer. She has been reading and reviewing fiction for as long as she can remember, and has always had a love for the genre. Working with The Coffee Pot Book Club greatly encouraged her love for history, and she can now often be found researching the history of the village she grew up in.

Ellie has been reading and reviewing for several years, and can often be found reading when she’s meant to be doing other things! She now spends her time reading, binge-watching television series, down the pub (working behind the bar, not drinking!), and riding horses.

Cathie Dunn

Cathie Dunn is a writer of award-winning, Amazon-bestselling historical fiction, mystery, and romance. 

Ever since she learned to read, she has enjoyed losing herself in books and stories. For several years, she reviewed novels for the Historical Novel Society in the UK, and she has been an active reviewer for a number of blog tour providers on both sides of the Atlantic. She loves reading a wide range of books, but her favourite genres continue to be historical fiction (including various sub-genres) and romantic women’s fiction. 

In her spare time, she loves exploring historic sites and uncovering hidden (hi)stories. She is a member of the Historical Novel Society and the Alliance of Independent Authors (ALLi).

Cathie is now the full-time coordinator at The Coffee Pot Book Club. She is also an Editorial Reviewer.
