Hilary Mackelden lives in Sussex, UK, where she writes stage plays and pantomimes. As Caitlyn Callery, she writes Regency Romances.

Her Regency Romance "Viscount in Hiding" was released in April 2023 by The Wild Rose Press. A second novel, "A Betrothal Agreement" will be released later this year.

In 2004, her play, "Sammy" won the Sussex Playwright's National Open Award for an original stage play.

In 2007, her play, "The Price of Firewood" was commended at the Verity Bargate Award.

In 2016, her novel, "Incognito" was shortlisted for the Romantic Novelists Association Historical Romance Novel of the Year.

Hilary was born in Coventry and grew up in Leicestershire, but has lived all her adult life in Sussex, where she enjoys reading, writing, amdram, walking on Ashdown Forest, and visiting the coast at Hastings and Eastbourne. She has three children, one of whom has Prader Willi Syndrome, (the condition at the heart of the play, "Sammy") and four grandchildren. In October 2023, she will become a great-grandma, although she is far too young for this, really.
Before becoming a full time writer, she worked for the charity "World In Need" and, with them, visited Kenya, where they honoured her and her friends by allowing them to plant 640 trees in one morning, and Morocco, where she delivered wheelchairs and other aids for the benefit of the disabled there.
Other jobs have included working in a bank, a call centre, a bar and restaurant, driving lorries, being a mechanic's mate, and cleaning.
