Kate Walker, another HM&B author, remembers Hamilton as "a tiny woman with an infectious, live-wire personality." In an interview on the Mills & Boon website, when asked "What quote or personal saying do you live by? Who said it?" Hamilton replied "'I can do it!' — Me."
As she also revealed in that M&B interview, Spain was one of her favourite settings for her novels "because it’s fabulous and so romantic" so I thought I'd include a quotation from her A Spanish Vengeance: "Things left undone, important things, didn't bring a peaceful mind" (168). This seems to have been true with regards to her own life as a writer: in that interview she revealed that one of the things she liked least about being an author was the deadlines and "With typical professionalism she turned in her last book just a couple of months before she died" (Walker).
