Maeve Binchy and Joanna Trollope honoured by RNA

17th March 2010

Two bestselling authors have been given lifetime achievement awards by the Romantic Novelists' Association (RNA).

Maeve Binchy and Joanna Trollope were recognised by the group for their contributions to the genre at the Pure Passion Awards at London's Royal Garden Hotel.

Binchy, whose books have sold an estimated 45 million copies worldwide, said she was 'delighted' to receive the award and thanked the association for its work in promoting the genre, while Trollope added: 'I am amazed and thrilled to be given this.'

Katie Fforde, chair of the RNA, commented: 'Maeve Binchy and Joanna Trollope are household names, national treasures and some of the best storytellers of the last 50 years.'

Other writers celebrated in the Pure Passion Awards include Lucy Dillon, who won the romantic novel of the year prize for Lost Dogs and Lonely Hearts, and Nell Dixon, whose Animal Instincts took the love story of the year gong.

Earlier this year, Binchy revealed that she is working on a new book - Minding Frankie - which will be published at the start of 2011.
