Author Bio
Margaret Way
Margaret Way was born and educated in the river city of Brisbane, Australia, where she now lives within
sight and sound of beautiful Moreton Bay and its islands, inspiration for some of her books.Before her
marriage she was a well-known pianist, teacher, vocal coach and accompanist, but her hectic musical
career came to a halt when her son was born and the demands of motherhood dictated a change of pace.
On a fortuitous impulse she decided to try her hand at romance writing and was thrilled when Mills &
Boon accepted her first effort, Time of the Jacaranda, which they published less than a year later in 1970;
a feat that brought tears to her father's eyes. Some seventy odd books have followed resulting in a loyal
readership whose letters provide a source of support and encouragement.Her interests remain with the
arts. She still plays the piano seriously, but her "top Cs" have gone. She is still addicted to collecting
antiques and paintings and browsing through galleries. She lives in a house of books, spectacular plants,
Chinese screens and pots. She is devoted to her garden and spends much time "directing the design and
digging and providing cold drinks and chocolates."A driving force in all her writing has been the promotion
of her much loved country, Australia. She delights in bringing it alive for her readers; its people, way of
life, environment, flora and fauna. Her efforts so far have not excited official recognition, but she expects
one day she will be awarded the "Order of Australia."


Raye Morgan
Raye Morgan grew up in Holland, Guam, and California, and spent a few years in Washington, D.C. as
well. She lives in the Los Angeles area now with her geologist/computer scientist husband and the two of
her four sons who still live at home."Having the boys around helps keep me up on the current trends," she
says with a laugh. "But writing helps keep me in touch with the romance that weaves through the
everyday lives we all live."


Rebecca Winters
Rebecca Winters, an American writer and mother of four, lives in Salt Lake City, Utah. When she was 17,
she went to boarding school in Lausanne, Switzerland, where she learned to speak French and met girls
from all over the world. Upon returning to the U.S., Rebecca developed her love of languages when she
earned her B.A. in secondary education, history, French, and Spanish from the University of Utah and did
postgraduate work in Arabic.Because of her studies overseas, Rebecca decided to become a teacher
and studied French and history at her alma mater in Utah. For the past 15 years, she's taught junior-high
and high-school French and history, and says she got into serious writing almost by accident."I went
through a back door to begin my writing career," she says. "In the first place, I never liked to write
anything--I only wrote mandatory papers for school. If anyone had told me I would become a writer, let
alone love it, I would have laughed and dismissed the notion as absolutely absurd and preposterous.
"Having said that, I did write letters to my parents while I was away at boarding school when I was 17. My
mother kept them and one day, after I had become a mother for the second time, she sent me all my old
letters and asked me to write my memories from them for posterity. At the time I thought she was
insane, but because I adore my mother I did as she asked."By the time I'd finished sorting through all
those teenage thoughts, observations and opinions, the seeds of a story had begun to form in my mind.
The seed eventually became a novel and was published in 1979. It was called The Loving Season,
published under the name Rebecca Burton. Naturally, it takes place in Switzerland and France."As soon
as I finished that novel, I found myself wanting to start another novel entitled By Love Divided, a World
War II romance. A few years later, Harlequin bought a novel, Blind to Love, a story that takes place in
Kenya. It's been a love affair ever since."I guess the mora

Trish Wylie
Trish Wylie was born and raised in County Antrim in the North of Ireland. Being raised on a diet of Rogers
and Hammerstein movies certainly helped with her sense of romance and imagination, and then, in her
teens, she was introduced to Harlequin. Her mother subscribed to the Reader Service and got the titles
delivered every month. They would then be stolen from her hands by Trish.By the time she reached her
late teens she already loved creative writing and was telling all her friends that one day she would be a
writer for Harlequin. She even took a "year out" at 18 to write, the old fashioned way, with reams of paper
and a good fountain pen.But after one unsuccessful attempt at a local television competition to find a new
writer for Harlequin to look at, and with the realization that maybe she should live a little before she tried
writing about people falling in love, Trish soon went out into the world and tried a career or two.With her
life more settled Trish finally sat down in front of a computer and started to work on one of the stories
she'd first started writing when she'd taken her "year out." Then she made the first steps toward actually
submitting it. Trish discovered the eHarlequin.com boards and learnt everything she needed to know
about partials, synopses and how to submit. She picked up writing tips and got to talk to authors who
had been in the business for years.Having talked to fellow wannabes on the site she knew the chances of
selling on a first submission were slim. But by Christmas Eve she had a request for the full manuscript
(she still maintains Santa brought it) and after three sets of revisions she got the call. "I got a message
on my mobile from the editor at Harlequin who was dealing with my manuscript and I can remember
thinking how nice it was that they would ring to tell you they weren't taking it." Believing that they were
ringing to say they were taking it was just too much optimism for Trish to handle."She asked if I was
sitting down


Shirley Jump
Shirley Jump didn't have the willpower to diet nor the talent to master undereye concealer, so she bowed
out of a career in television and opted instead for a career where she could be paid to eat at her desk —
writing.She started out in journalism, selling her first article at the age of eleven and dreaming of being the
next Jane Pauley. She hosted two of her own shows on the local cable channel and was the co-host of a
late-night comedy show for two years. After writing 3000 articles and two nonfiction books, Shirley grew
too dependent on her robe and fuzzy slippers, though, and decided a career as a freelance writer suited
her better.Then she got married. And had two kids.Humor became the only thing that got her through the
mashed potato fling-fests and toilet paper decorating sprees. At first, seeking revenge on her children for
their grocery store tantrums, she sold embarrassing essays about them to anthologies such as Chicken
Soup for the Working Woman's Soul and Chocolate for Women II. However, it wasn't enough to feed her
growing addiction to writing funny.So, she turned to the world of romance novels where messes are
(usually) cleaned up before The End and no one is calling anyone a doodoo-head. In the worlds Shirley
gets to create and control, the children listen to their parents, the husbands always remembers holidays
and the housework is magically done by elves.She sold her first book to the Silhouette Romance line in
2001. That novel, The Virgin's Proposal, won the Booksellers' Best Award for Best Traditional Romance of
2003.Shirley now writes stories for Silhouette and Kensington about love, family and food — the three
most important things in her life (if she's being honest, though, there are many days when the order is
reversed), using that English degree everyone said would be so useless.Though she's thrilled to see her
books in stores around the world, Shirley mostly writes because it gives her an excuse to avoid cleaning
the toilets and helps feed
