Sandra Clare Howard (née Paul) was one of the leading photographic fashion models of the 1960s and 70s. She began doing freelance journalism while still modelling and continues to write for the press alongside writing novels, which is now a full-time career. Her four published titles are GLASS HOUSES (2006) URSULA'S STORY (2007) A MATTER OF LOYALTY (2009) and Ex-Wives (2012). Sandra has begun work on a fifth novel with a working title of ‘Tell the Girl’, which, although fictionalised, will be largely autobiographical. It is set both in the 60s and present day. Sandra is closely involved with two national charities – as a trustee of the drug rehabilitation charity Addaction and a Vice-President of Youth Epilepsy (NCYPE). She is married to the former British Conservative Party leader Michael Howard. They have three adult children and live in London and Kent.
