I don't get much reading right now because I'm so focused on writing. Too many stories in my mind keep me up at night. lol
I'm a mother of three and a grandmother of four, happily married to the greatest guy.
I've written since I was a child, creating plays to act out in the garage for the local kids.
In 2002 I had a severe breakdown and ended up writing because I couldn't do anything else for years.
I've published 14 books, 10 of which are now out of contract. I hope to have them up again soon. Creative writing is a big part of my life now because I LOVE writing!
I look forward to meeting many new friends at CTR.

My name is Nancy Adams. I am a full-blooded Canadian, right down to the maple syrup running through my veins. I enjoy watching hockey and eating Poutine, usually at the same time. I have no problem driving for 6 hours for a weekend trip and I will throw in the occasional French swear word into a conversation. I have a three small addictions, bed lines, lavender, and books. All of which, is replenished on a regular basis. Reading into the wee hours of the morning, is one of many bad habits, next to spontaneously rearranging furniture and randomly painting rooms in my house.
Writing is a new passion for me, which began with ‘Hobby’ writing courses dating back to 2008. I don’t show favoritism against any genre, and when writing I just go with the flow and write what I want to write. Although, you will find that my books are a combination of many different genres and all have a hefty dose of erotic romance and usually a laugh thrown in for good measure.
I have two books published with erotic romance publisher Total-E-Bound, No Matter When is a Historical/Futuristic/Time Travel romance, and The Soul Within is a Contemporary/Paranormal romance. My next book The Bannockburn Spell is due for released with TEB in Nov/Dec this year.
I am currently working on a Paranormal/Shaper-Shifters Romance set on the coast of Vancouver Island, British Colombia.
Welcome to my corner of the coffee shop. I like my coffee with a dash of cream and shot of Irish Whiskey…Tullemore Dew is my favorite…when I can’t have Irish Coffee, I prefer Earl Grey tea.
I write Irish Westerns, Medievals…and more. I published my first book, THE MARSHAL’S DESTINY (bk 1 in my Irish Western Series) with Avalon Books in 2001 and my tenth book, TYLER, released from Sourcebooks on March 1st. Both are Irish Westerns (I like to take my Irishmen out west and get them into trouble). I have a Medieval Trilogy with DCL Publications, the third book in the trilogy will be going into print this year. For my full book list, check out my website
About me…as a romance author, I've finally found a way to keep the voices from driving me insane...I put them in my stories. Now when the people in my head argue and wake me up, I'm not worried because I know they are characters from my current works-in-progress...and if not, they soon will be! I like to use family names in all of my stories. The castle on my home page is the ancestral home of my Purcell relatives in Tipperary, Ireland. All of my heroes have some of my husband’s best qualities: his honesty, his shoulders, integrity, his compassion for those in need, and his killer broad shoulders. I’m a sucker for a man with broad shoulders.
Unstoppable heros, Uncompromising love, Unforgettable passion.
Science Fiction Romance author Kayelle Allen spent years developing the universe for her books. Her debut novel was so spicy it made seasoned Romance readers blush. Appealing to every gender and sexual orientation, her command of the romantic language evokes passion in all its forms. Her offbeat humor and surprising twists generated the motto, "Think you know what'll happen next? No way! It's by Kayelle...
Having written as Amy Gallow for over ten years, a reasonable question is why I would choose to change, especially as I will continue to write romance under her name (with at least one book contracted and another in preparation)?
The answer is that I want to go places where Amy’s friends might feel uncomfortable, even though a strong romantic thread runs through all my stories. Places like the mind of a veteran of WWI, the French Foreign Legion, WWII and Korea, or that of the longest serving Chinese detective in the Victoria Police on the eve of the execution of a Chinese miner convicted largely on his investigation and information gained while he and the miner shared a pipe of opium in July 1875, and that of a British Naval officer convicted of sodomy in 1815, but hung because he knew too many things embarrassing to those in power at the time. They are works in progress and one is already contracted to Eternal Press, another is in the submission process and I am deep in research for the third. There are others in the pipeline, waiting their turn. All a little different from anything Amy might write, even though she has my gratitude for giving me the services of editors, publishers and reviewers as I learnt my craft.
Do you need to turn up the heat? Not anymore when you read these paranormal romances! Tales of psychics who use their unique skills to save the day, whether deep in the jungle, or running through the city. It’s a race against the clock where you don’t know until the last minute if they'll be able to save the day. Franny Armstrong became a professional writer after suffering a severe breakdown. Part of her healing process was to write. Now she writes full time and loves every minute of it, sinking herself into the character’s lives. What’s the best part of writing in her viewpoint? She can take them anywhere in the world and pit them against all odds. A sucker for a happily ever after, Franny gives the heroes and heroines a run for their money. Check out Breathless Publishing or go to her site, and you’ll find what you’re looking for. Enjoy...
I started writing when I was about twelve. I'd just read one of Elaine Mitchell's brumby books (not the silver brumby series, one of the others) and I hated the ending. So I did what seemed the most natural thing to do--I rewrote it <g>.
I haven't stopped writing since--though I have to admit, it's only in the last fifteen years that I've seriously thought about getting published.
To date, I've completed a total of seventeen novels, (not counting the rewrite of Elaine Mitchell's!) although the first three will probably never see the light of day. I thought they were brilliant at the time, but looking at them now, I can only shudder. I still think the ideas are great, but basically, all three books would need to be entirely rewritten. Maybe I'll get back to them one day, when I have the time and nothing else to write. I'm a member of RWAustralia, the Princess Lulu Regrets crit group (don't ask about the name, because it's just unexplainable <g>), the Sock Monkeys, and the Monkeylint support group.

Natalie now resides in the UK with a collection of Victorian and Edwardian era photography- her favorites being the post-mortem photographs.

Hello! I'm a romantic suspense/thriller author, and oh boy, do I love saying that!I write books with intense conflicts, continuing suspense, romance and happy endings.

I’m a YA lit addict and I cannot lie. I think that some of the best fiction today is young adult. Though I’ve traditionally written horror novels, my latest book is about gender identity. The title is Cevin’s Deadly Sin. It’s the story of a hetero, teen cross-dresser: his struggles with first love, self-identity and bullying during his senior year in a small, Florida town. Cevin thinks that moving to Tilapia, Florida town is the worst thing that ever happened to him…until he falls for Tessa. She may be the one person who can accept his cross-dressing, but her brother Hunt’s goal is to make Cevin’s life a living hell. When Hunt “outs” him at school, Cevin has to figure out how to come to terms with his own identity in order to keep Tessa and quite possibly save his own life. Stop by and have a latté with me, and we can chat about YA.

Maya DeLeina was born and raised on the beautiful and romantic beaches of Oahu, Hawaii. Relocating to Colorado, Maya's crystal blue oceans and powdery white sands were traded for
enchanting forests, mystic mountains and golden plains of promise. Living just on the outskirts of Manitou Springs, the town's history of spiritual healing, eclectic flare, fabled underground tunnels and rumored lore of wizardry and witchcraft rekindled Maya's love for the paranormal, metaphysical and most of all, vampires. One bite and she was hooked. With a hint of incense lofting in the air and the majestic Pikes Peak
sitting in picture perfect view from her windows, Maya can be found relaxing in the recesses of her comfy couch, sinking her teeth into crafting and weaving seducing and erotic tales of vampires that may or may not roam her beloved town.
One read and you'll be hooked.

I'm excited to be here at the Authors Coffee Corner, but I have a huge secret to divulge (please make sure the wonderful folks at Coffee Time Romance aren't listening). Although I love the smell of coffee, I'm not so enamored of the taste. I'm more of a tea drinker. So long as no one looks too closely at what's in my cup, I should be safe.
Since I'm most comfortable in the corner, doing some people watching, this is actually the perfect place for me. I'm an introvert with extrovert tendencies. I also love to talk about stuff: history, travel, kids, theatre, art, just about anything. What I really need is someone to talk with, so I hope you'll join me.
Writing stories is my passion and thankfully I've got lots of ideas rolling around in my head. I love a good story, no matter what genre or label anyone wants to put on it. My fourth novel, Bone of My Bones, is coming out August 19th from the Wild Rose Press.

Although I long ago left the farm for the glamour of the big town, I still draw a lot from my experiences growing up on a small farm in West Central Pennsylvania to write my stories. I love stories with a real characters living real lives and try to write those same kind of stories. I've been married for 20 years and have a teenage son and daughter who are as different as summer and winter. And we are all at the mercy of Penny, one very spoiled rescue cat who thinks she needs to eat breakfast at 1 AM and is scared of the dark. I would love to live in the places I write about and tell everyone I'm a cowgirl at heart stuck in Pennsylvania suburbia. Because I love vampires almost as much as I do cowboys, I also have paranormal romantic suspense published under the pen name Cera duBois. Vist my Website
Need a break from the hot-and-heavy? I like my romance within the overarching plot. If you feel the same, or are just into snarky dragons, half-mad psychics, and taking out zombies with a combination of guts and good sense, come join in and share my worlds.

Under their Christine Holden pen name, Leslie and Shirley sold five books to Berkley/Jove between 1998 and 2001. Their last book, Dearest Beloved, had a foreign edition in Dutch. In between writing, Leslie started Inside Rose Rich Magazine. In 2011, Leslie and Shirley was picked up by D4EO Literary Agency. In June 2011, they began working on Wicked Allure. What began as an unsolicited proposal for Harlequin Blaze ended up becoming their first self-published book.

Born and raised in Manhattan, I have lived in the Boston area since just after the blizzard of 1978, thus missing the opportunity to abandon my car in a snowbank and walk home. I am the daughter of a painter and the mother of three grown sons. An avid science fiction fan, I selected Robert A. Heinlein's "Farmer in the Sky" for my tenth birthday, now long past. I live outside of Boston with my partner and a large number of dogs.
In spite of earning my living as a computer software engineer, I turned to one of my sons to put up the first version of my website, a clear illustration of the computer generation gap. An accomplished flute and piccolo player, I can also write backwards and wiggle my ears. Thanks to my father's relentless hounding, I can still recite the rules for pronoun agreement in both English and French. My articles, poems, and stories have appeared in anthologies and journals such as Melusine, Front Range Review, and All Rights Reserved. My 2010 NaNo novel, Relocated was published by MuseItUp Publishing in July, 2012. and the second Aleyne novel, Broken Bonds in July, 2013. A third novel, Geek Games, came out in November, 2013. I published the book of poems that goes with the Relocated through CreateSpace. My book, The Angry Little Boy will be published by 4RV publishing sometime this year.. I am one of six authors of the poetry anthology, "Lifelines."
I play the flute and the piccolo, but am quite rusty. I recently completed Pat Pattison's songwriting course. One of reasons I took it was because one of the characters in "Broken Bonds" is a musician -- she plays an string instrument called a rill, which I imagine is something like an autoharp. I've written lyrics to songs she's supposed to be singing but not the music. I am presently working on finishing up a fourth Aleyne novel and have started work on a fantasy.

Sydney-born Donna Gallagher decided at an early age that life needed be tackled head on. Leaving home at 15 she supported herself through her teen years. In her twenties she married a professional sportsman, her love of sport -- especially rugby league -- probably overriding her good sense.
The seven-year marriage was an adventure. There were the emotional ups and downs of having a husband with a public profile in a sometimes glamorous but always high-pressure field. There were always interesting characters to meet and observe and even the opportunity to live for a time in the UK.
Eventually Donna returned home a single woman, but she never lost her passion for watching sport, as well as the people in and around it.
Now happily re-married and with three sons Donna loves coffee mornings with her female friends, sorting through problems from the personal to the international. But she's on even footing with the keenest man when it comes to watching and talking rugby league.
Donna considers herself something of a black sheep in a family of high achievers. Her brother has a doctorate in mathematics and her sister is a well-known sports journalist.
An avid reader, especially of romance, Donna finally found she couldn't stop the characters residing in her imagination from spilling onto paper. Naturally rugby league is the backdrop to her League of Love Series, published through UK publisher Total-E-Bound, spicy tales of hunky heroes and spunky heroines overcoming adversity to eventually find true love.
Hi. Welcome to the Coffee Corner of award winning, best selling (USA Today Bestseller List among others) author Samantha Gentry. Come on in, grab a cup, kick off your shoes, and relax. We can talk about whatever you'd like.
My reading tastes are eclectic. I enjoy all sorts of books, both fiction and non-fiction. However, I have to admit that once I started writing I found myself reading more non-fiction than fiction because of my research into various subjects.
My writing is a little more focused—erotic romance (contemporary and suspense), contemporary romance, romantic suspense, and mystery. As time permits, I'm trying something new by working on a couple of paranormal stories. In addition to my ebook releases written as Samantha Gentry, I also have a backlist of 21 novels published with Harlequin Intrigue and Silhouette Desire under my other pseudonym. You'll find the list on my website.
On Sunday mornings I post a new blog and have several contests each year on my website (usually something to do with movie trivia). Stop by and leave a comment on my blog about the current weekly subject and don't forget to enter my website contest.

I’ve even published a movie novelization and had a screen play collaboration made into an indie horror film! Currently, I have a six book dark paranormal series with Pocket that just debuted with MASKED BY MOONLIGHT.
At the keyboard before 5:00 a.m. and a legal assistant from 9-to-5, I have a secret addiction to Net Flix and men with accents and enjoy talking about all aspects of writing and the industry. Let’s chat!

Rhonda Jackson Joseph has always been an avid, equal opportunity reader. One of her early forays into writing was during junior high school when she produced numerous romance short stories in which she and her best girlfriends were the heroines. The stories were circulated and garnered quite a following. Thus, she found that romance writing came rather natural to her.
Her focus shifted toward horror writing when the elevated hormone levels in her body during pregnancy brought on terrifying nightmares during the scant hours she could find sleep. The dreams demanded to be placed on paper, and she hoped they would then be exorcised. To no avail, as they never completely disappeared. In fact, they multiplied.
I came, I saw, I wrote about something else entirely. Yes, that about sums up my writing process. I am a multi published author of hot romance, usually with some fantasy, science fiction or paranormal elements thrown in just to make it fun.
I live in the beautiful Okanagan Valley with a bouncy Jack Russell terrier, a cantankerous Himalayan cat and too many fish to count. I spent many years trying to fit in and act normal, but finally gave up the effort. I started writing romance, and my fate was sealed when I won a publishing contract with Red Sage Publishing and just a month later Changeling Press accepted my first submission. Since then I've published more than thirty stories in a variety of sub-genres, all with a happily ever after.
My hobbies, when I'm not playing with the characters in my head, include kayaking, hiking, motorcycles, swimming, skating, karate, playing guitar, singing and of course, reading.
My name is AC Katt and I write m/m and m/m/f romance. I have two series of book right now. One is Indiscreet about a gay BDSM club located in the Mercer and Monmouth County areas of New Jersey. The current book in the series, Bull’s Whip, was released on January 31st by MLR Press. I also have a stand alone short, Flowers and Chocolates which will be released on February 14th , also from MLR.
My second series is a scifi ménage called The Sarrans, the second of the books, Living With Syn, is being released by JMS Books toward the end of February.
I favor water more than coffee, but chocolate is always at the top of my caffeine list. I'd love to sit back and chat with you about any topic you choose. I write romantic suspense, paranormal, urban fantasy, contemporary romances containing spice and humor. I'm multipublished and my mind continues to click off new ideas, fantasies to pursue.
Please feel free to visit my website, or MySpace page, or FaceBook.
I'm a multi-published author of sensuous historical romance and erotic romance. I'm particularly fond of seductively wicked alpha heroes with a taste for spirited, intelligent heroines. My stories are sizzling romances that capture the rich array of emotions that accompany that most fabulous human phenomena – falling in love.
When I'm not writing or researching my next story, I enjoy spending time with my own hero hiking, biking, reading romances and biographies, visiting wineries, or relaxing on the Outer Banks’ beautiful beaches.
As you might guess, I'm a born romantic. I adore a sensuous, passionate love story of desire's transformation to love. Hope you'll check out my releases at my website.

Welcome to my coffee bar. Key word being bar. Need it spiked, just ask ;) I write women's fiction that ranges from time travel to romantic suspense/thriller and everything in between. My females are sassy and have potty mouths, but their men love them anyway. Heat rating is always around 3 - no erotica for me. Don't mind the writer behind the curtain, I only do what my characters tell me to! Someone has to be in charge of me. I love fan mail and am an open book (no pun intended!) I love questions - writing related or not! I grew up in Hawaii but have lived in MN for the past 20 years. I was pretty much the "Jill" of all trades & I have my characters to show for it. Write what you know rings true, I suppose. Stop in and introduce yourself. I'd love to chat! :)
Eva Lefoy writes and reads all kinds of romance, and is a certified Trekkie. She’s also terribly addicted to chocolate, tea, and hiking. One of these days, she’ll figure out the meaning of life, quit her job, and go travel the galaxy. Until then, she’s writing down all her dirty thoughts for the sake of future explorers.
Sharita Lira writes under Michael Mandrake, Rawiya, BLMorticia, and new muse Veronica Bagby. She writes mostly m/m but also does m/f, m/m/f, and eventually f/f. For more information, please visit as well as her Facebook fanpage, The Literary Triad.
Writer, reader, teacher, mother, friend--but mostly that first thing. My debut novel, In Leah's Wake, began as my master's thesis. Like In Leah's Wake, my novel-in-progress, Nowhere to Run, a psychological thriller, is a family story at heart.
I teach writing at Boston College and blog about writing, publishing and the writer's life at The Art & Craft of Writing Creatively. When I'm not writing, I'm usually with hubby, Dave, and, whenever possible, our grown kids. I also hang out on Facebook and Twitter.
Please join me somewhere online! I love chatting with writers, readers and other fun people!

I am a multi published author and I write mainly erotic, paranormal romance. Although, really, I just write whatever my characters tell me to. I live in Northern Ireland, where although the scenery is fantastic, our weather leaves a lot to be desired. My natural habitat is the bedroom with a notebook, a cup of tea and copious amounts of chocolate. I'm scatty, disorganised, and easily distracted, so come say hi!
Hello, I’m Hywela Lyn, although I’ve always been called Lyn and am quite happy to answer to that – it’s easier to pronounce than ‘Hywela’! I lived most of my life in Wales, where I was born and raised, and Welsh myths and legends inspired much of my writing. My stories usually take place in that ‘other world’ of fantasy which might be in the far past or the far future but which relies on the heroes and heroine's courage and quick wits to survive the trials before them.
From an early age I had two great loves – books and horses. Nothing has changed, only now I write the stories I love to read and have two real horses of my own, rather than the imaginary ones I had as a child. I love the idea of space travel and starships, but I also like the idea of a tranquil world with little technology and a simple lifestyle. By writing science fantasy I can have it both ways! Come join me for romance that’s ‘out of this world’.

Nana’s love of all things romance and adventure started with a tattered romantic suspense she borrowed from her cousin on a sultry summer afternoon in Ghana at a precocious thirteen. She’s been in love with kick butt heroines ever since.
With her overactive imagination, and channeling her inner Buffy, it was only a matter a time before she started creating her own characters. Waiting for her chance at a job as a ninja assassin, Nana, meantime works out her drama, passion and sass with fictional characters every bit as sassy and kick butt as she thinks she is. Though, until that ninja job comes through, you’ll find her acting out scenes for hubby and puppy while catching up on her favorite reality television shows in sunny San Diego.

Annette Mardis writes contemporary romance with a lot of heart and a touch of humor. Her Gulf Shore series is set in a fictional west-central Florida beach town where you’ll taste salt on your skin and feel sugary white sand between your toes, the warm sun on your shoulders, and a sea breeze ruffling your hair.
You’ll meet swoon-worthy alpha males who aren’t embarrassed to cuddle a rescued baby dolphin in their muscular arms, and accomplished women looking for an equal partner who thinks that smart is sexy.
You’ll get up close and personal with sea life, join the “snipe and gripe” club for girls’ nights out, and fall in love with a talking parrot who acts like a little boy in a bird suit.
You’ll go behind-the-scenes at the local aquarium and out to the beach to rescue marine animals in distress and to return others to the wild.
And once you visit Gulf Shore, you just may find yourself wishing you could stay.
I invite you to come along on my journey. Wander around my site and see what you may find. I love to hear from my friends, email me and say “Hi”. Or come out and play in Mary's Garden. You’ll find new recipes, meet interesting people. Be sure to leave a comment or two. Please don't be shy.
There are more things in heaven and earth Horatio then are dreamt of in your philosophy. (Shakespeare: Hamlet, Act 1, Scene 5)
While I’ll never be in Shakespeare’s league, I have to agree with the bard—or the ghost, if you’ve read the play—there are more things in heaven and earth than I can dream about, but that won’t stop me from trying to write them down and share them with whoever wants to read them.
Every book is a journey. Sometimes spooky, sexy, angst-y or thrilling, but I love to share the ride.

I create book boyfriends for you to lust after. Fueled by coffee, dreams, and men in kilts, I promise to bring you lots of laughter, sexy fun time, and action that keeps you on the edge of your seat. I write mainly paranormal romance and urban fantasy, but I've dabbled in erotic romance and contemporary romance. I hail from the frozen tundra of Wisconsin where beer and cheese are their own food groups. But a cowboy swept me off my feet and carried me below the Mason-Dixon line to Texas ,where I promptly lost all tolerance for cold and snow. The easiest way to bribe me is anything to do with the Green Bay Packers, Doctor Who, or Joss Whedon.

my fascination with urban fantasy and paranormal romance. I
like my coffee strong, smooth and not too sweet, like my
heroines. The Widow's Walk is part of the Unfinished

Deirdre O’Dare is a best selling author at Amber Quill press. Her sizzling hot love stories combine adventure and lots of action-- both between the sheets, on top of them, in the shower or almost anywhere—as well as the danger and extreme lifestyle kind! Her Celtic ancestry comes out in her love of playing with words, her story-telling penchant and her wish to honor the Mother Goddess through writing about all kinds of love! Deirdre writes both straight and GLBT tales, so you can take you pick or just enjoy them all. Her characters tend to pop into her head at odd times and demand she tell their stories. She says they dictate and she writes.
Deirdre also writes milder, PG-13 romance novels as Gwynn Morgan and currently has these books at Amber Quill and Mundania in their Awe-Struck subsidiary. Gwynn’s tales also blend love and adventure and often draw on her background growing up in rural Arizona on a ranch training horses and mules and her later connection to law enforcement through her late husband and the military through a civilian career with the Army and Air Force. Gywnn also writes poetry and has one book of that published with Damnation Books under their Eternal Press imprint. She is also currently working on some memoir projects about her unusual life.
Deirdre/Gwynn’s many hobbies including reading, music--mostly listening, art and crafts, sewing, photography, jewelry making and lapidary, hiking, target shooting, four-wheeling in the desert and mountains and working with dogs. She currently has a Border Collie-Australian Shepherd cross and a little guy who seems to be dachshund and small spaniel. She is also a huge fan of Alaskan and Siberian Huskies-aka “sled dogs” --and the amazing women who race them in the frozen northlands. She is researching and working on a book about this extreme sport of high adventure and the bonds between the women and their teams. See the linked sub-forum, Alaska Calling a Writer to learn more about this!
I think I’d be in the majority if I said I like to see the good guys or girls come out on top, when I read a book or see a movie. Very few of us want to see the bully, the cheater, or the manipulator win. That’s one reason I love to read about people of faith who find the strength to overcome obstacles and defeat the odds against them. Sure, villains make the story more interesting, but should they win -- naw, not in my book. Speaking of books, I wanted my first romance to be in a romantic setting with a bit of suspense with a handsome, strong hero who wins over a headstrong woman who said she’d never date again after her fiancé, a no-good louse, broke her heart.
When I’m not writing or reading I like to swim, walk on the beach and visit with my friends and family. People watching can be fun too.

Mysti Parker (pseudonym) is a full time wife, mother, writer, and chocoholic. Her first novel, A Ranger's Tale was published in January, 2011 by Melange Books, and the second in the fantasy romance series, Serenya's Song, was published in April 2012. The highly anticipated third book, Hearts in Exile, has already received some great reviews. The Tallenmere series has been likened to Terry Goodkind's 'Sword of Truth' series, but is probably closer to a spicy cross between Tolkien and Mercedes Lackey. She resides in Buckner, KY with her husband, three children, three cats, one dog, three hermit crabs, and a huge aquarium full of mutt fish.
If you like ‘Sweet’ Edge of Your Seat Romantic Suspense/Mysteries you’ve come to the right place. Don’t let the ‘Sweet’ fool you, my books are far from boring. My heroines are strong-willed, often very opinionated, ladies who usually wind up in a big mess of trouble and need a handsome man to come along and bail them out—though they’d never admit to needing the help. As suspense junkie, my ultimate goal in every story is to have the reader so engrossed they're up all night reading.

Seers, Seraphs, Immortals and more! Urban fantasy meets paranormal romance in the Emerald Seer Series.
I focused primarily on epic fantasy works (under another pen name) until the idea for Storm popped in my head one day. She proved quite stubborn and I simply could not shake her (I think that comes out some in her debut) so Ryder on the Storm was born. I find this series to be a much needed hiatus from my fantasy series and truly enjoy each new development.

Hi everyone! Welcome to my Coffee Time Romance Corner. The coffee's always so pull up a chair and get comfortable. I write sweet and inspirational contemporary and historical romance novels, especially the Regency and Tudor era. I love board games and am a compulsive reader of every genre. I'm addicted to chocolate and obsessed with finding good homes for animals with deformities. I'd love to chat with you.
I now find time to write after many years in the business world. I like the paranormal, which I research. I also love writing mystery, page turners that keep you reading. I write every day, and love every minute of it.
I was born and raised in the suburbs of D.C, and now reside in the south with (sometimes) Prince Charming and my overly large (and way too hyper) nutty family. I'm a Walking Dead, True Blood and Lost Girl nut. My fix is coffee and reading.
Little known facts: I've been on the Gordon Elliot Show and have owned ferrets, crawdads, rats, flying squirrels and a barnyard of other animals/critters. No, I did not get any of them. They came to me. Yes, including the crawdads. Did you know they do it missionary? I didn't either but have pictures to prove it.
Truthfully I write all over the board. When I sit to pen a tale, I never truly know what it will be or where it will go. I'm as much along for the ride as anyone else. I can promise there will be quirk, heat and a Happily Ever After.
I'm a member of RomCom Critters on Yahoo, RWA, RWA Chapter Group #213 member and Treasurer 2010, President 2011, Education Chair 2013.

Hello! I write contemporary erotic romance with BDSM elements usually set in Washington, D.C.. Expect alpha males and their sassy submissives (who learn not all power in our nation’s capital is wielded by politicians). My book’s themes center on people unafraid and unencumbered by society’s boundaries yet are seeking to become more of themselves. For many years I lived and worked in public relations in Washington. (Oh, the traffic.)
Today I live in the Blue Ridge Mountains with my husband and furry child, a little Westie (he runs the place). I don’t understand people who don’t read, and I’m in awe of anyone who can enjoy downer endings. I cry too easily. If I’m not reading or writing, you can find me indulging at local wineries or twirling in burlesque dance class. Words of wisdom: You’re never too old to start playing with feather boas and fans. I look forward to chatting with you!
I am a fangirl of a lot, but what I love the most is a strong female character. If she has super-powers, well that just adds to the fun. Give me Elizabeth Bennett, Katniss, Buffy (she kicks ass, so she gets included), Pica, Lisbeth Salander, and I am in heaven. I enjoy action and romance stories with characters fighting against incredible odds. Unbalanced is the first book in a series about sisters with elemental powers who must fight against a terrifying destiny of murder and sacrifice.
Please join me in discussing strong female characters, the writing craft, and fandom. I love to chat about books. writing, and what people enjoy reading.

My debut novel, Turning the Tide, is published by Choc Lit, ‘where heroes are like chocolate – irresistible!’ Winning a tin of chocolate in a national essay competition at primary school inspired me to become a writer, so being published by Choc Lit is something of a dream come true!
Setting off, with my husband, from the east coast in a vintage wooden boat to sail halfway round Britain provided the initial inspiration for Turning the Tide. The sleepy backwaters, quiet anchorages and picturesque harbours, not to mention the characters we met along the way, gave me plenty more to write about!

If you like accurate historical romances without compromising steamy intimate scenes between vivid and addicting characters, then you've come to the right place. Renee Vincent is a highly energetic author, whose traits are naturally transformed into her writing of face-paced, action-filled, plot-twisting epics in the tumultuous time period of 10th Century.
Her passions include Norse and Irish history, horses, and irresistible, brawny warrior heroes. RÆLIKSEN, her first historical romance that debuted in Dec. 2008, is jam packed with those and more. The sequel, MAC LIAM, due to release in 2010, will not disappoints either, as a love triangle - initially mentioned in RÆLIKSEN - will unfold and completely tantalize.

Born and raised in Arizona, my travels had been limited to California, Nevada, and New Mexico until I married a man doing a stint in the Army. If the Army offered nothing else, we at least had the opportunity to see a good part of the world. And we found we liked moving around. Our gypsy hearts have kept us on the move in civilian life but we think we've settled down at last on the prairie in northern Arizona. When I'm not at my laptop, I enjoy hiking, motorcycling, fishing, live theater, and baseball.
I’ve been writing most of my life, but didn’t take myself seriously as a writer. I was convinced I was meant to be an artist. Sometime after college, I found more satisfaction filling a blank page with words than an empty canvas with color. I left my paints behind.

AZKatz Publishing LLC, is fairly new to the publishing field and is offering those who like to read or write action packed suspense sprinkled with romance and international intrigue, a place to call home. One author on the site, Jay Brenner, had the first book in her trilogy featured in Borders top five picks one month – right before Borders became KOBO (the first book in this trilogy is currently with Evolutionary Publishing). Outside of giving new authors a place to call home, editing and proof reading has been a widely used service. Don’t have time to read and enjoy a full novel? Try the short stories offered in the anthology A.W.O.L. These short stories will make you laugh, cry and sometimes think OH NO! Plans to expand and offer poetry is currently in the works. Thinking about plastic surgery? Try Anatomy of the Pact, to sway one you way or another whether this would truly be a right choice for you. The story is based on a true life experience with those things no one ever tells you about such procedures.
Brenda Cockrum, a proud American, is the owner of AZKatz Publishing, who has experienced many moves over the years, and long ago discovered she was a ‘desert rat’. Although born in West Virginia, she often says she left her heart in Pennsylvania, where she claims the best folks in the world live. Later in life, she concluded if she had a choice of dying from a heat stroke, or shoveling snow, heat had to be the choice. This was behind her motivation to move to the Sonoran desert of Arizona.
Thanks to degrees acquired in computer sciences, she was able to work various information technology jobs. With the exception of a two-year stint in Iraq, and a short run at Holloman Air Force Base, most of her information technology career was spent at Fort Huachuca, in Arizona. She loves the high desert and enjoys hiking whenever the opportunity arises. After almost three decades of trekking to various southeastern Arizona ghost towns, she accumulated many photographs, and notes how quickly these towns are succumbing to the elements. Someday she intends to assemble her research along with the photos she’s taken of the towns and produce her Southeastern Arizona Ghost Town book. After living a few decades in Arizona, she and her husband moved to New Mexico with a wonderful view of White Sands Monument – one of many American wonders.

Authors who submit to WP can rest assured that they will never have to pay to
have their works published. Not for the editing, nor for the cover design. We are
a royalty paying publisher, not a subsidy publisher. We make our money through
the sale of books, not through services the author pays.
As a small, independent publisher, we take the time to work with our authors. They are an important part of the publishing process and are included throughout. From the designing of their covers to keeping their "voice" during
the editing process, without the author, WP would not be here, and we realize
A limited number of quality titles are added each year. Our novels may not be on
the New York Times bestsellers list, but our authors write with heart and soul.
