Mary J. Forbes developed a love affair with books at an early age while growing up on a large and
sprawling farm. In sixth grade, she wrote her first short story, which led to long, drawn-out poems in her
teens and eventually to the more practical matter of journalism as an adult. While her children were
small, she became a teacher. Continuing to write, she later sold several pieces of short fiction. One day
she discovered Romance Writers of America and, at that point, her writing life changed. A few years and
a number of cross-country moves later, she had completed several books and a horde of rejection letters.
But! That tooth-grinding perseverance paid off. One October afternoon the phone rang -- and an editor
offered a contract.Today, Mary lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and two children and
spends most mornings creating another life in the company of characters dear to her heart. Email her at
