Arrow has signed four more books from saga writer Donna Douglas, author behind the "heartwarming" Nightingale Nurses series of books set in an East End hospital in the 1930s.
Jenny Geras, publishing director of Arrow, bought world English rights from Caroline Sheldon at the Caroline Sheldon Literary Agency.
Arrow, which launched a second strand in Douglas’s publishing with The Nurses of Steeple Street in May, will continue publishing two books a year, one in Spring in the Steeple Street series and one in Autumn in the Nightingales series.
Geras said: "We are delighted to have a new deal with Donna. She is one of the very best writers in this area of the market, and her sales are going from strength to strength."
Douglas said: "I’m delighted that I have the opportunity to continue with the Nightingale and Steeple Street series, and I’m even more thrilled that I can go on working with Arrow. They really are a brilliant team of people to work with, and I’m keen to continue building an exciting future together."
