Author Bio
Penny Jordan
Penny Jordan was a storyteller long before she began to write romantic fiction. At the age of eight, she
was creating serialized bedtime stories, featuring make-believe adventures, for her younger sister who
was always the heroine. After reading a serialized Mills & Boon book in a woman’s magazine, she fell in
love with the hero. Penny was eleven and she quickly became an avid fan. Her goal, when writing
romance fiction, is to provide readers with an enjoyment and involvement similar to that she experienced
from her early reading. She likes nothing more than to hear her fans share her love: romance. She works
from home, in her kitchen, surrounded by four dogs and two cats, and welcomes interruptions from her
friends and family. Penny believes in the importance of love, including the benefits and happiness it
brings. It’s the special bonds linking Harlequin readers and writers that she personally treasures!


Michelle Reid
Reading has been an important part of Michelle Reid's life as far back as she can remember, and was
encouraged by her mother who made the twice-weekly bus trip to the nearest library to keep feeding this
particular hunger in all five of her children. In fact, one of Michelle's most abiding memories from those
days is coming home from school to find a newly borrowed selection of books stacked on the kitchen
table just waiting to be delved into. There has not been a day since that she hasn't had at least two
books lying open somewhere in the house ready to pick up and continue whenever she has a quiet
moment. Her love of romantic fiction has always been strong, though she feels she was quite late in
discovering the riches Mills & Boon has to offer. It wasn't long after making this discovery that she made
the daring decision to try her hand at writing one for herself, never expecting it to become such an
important part of her life.Now she shares her time between her large, close, lively family and creeping
away to her quiet study to write whenever she gets the opportunity. But for a real escape from everything,
she prefers to load up the car and drive off with her husband to the tiny white stoned cottage they have in
the English Lake-district. It is both a romantic haven and the perfect base to go walking through some of
the most beautiful scenery in England.


Carol Marinelli
Carol was born in England to Scottish parents, which meant many long, happy summer holidays spent in
Scotland with her two sisters.The only thing a secretarial course taught her was that she didn’t want to
work in an office. Applying to do her nursing training, she was advised to write the entrance test for the
three-year State Registered Nurse Course, but at 18, the two-year State Enrolled Nurse program sounded
more attractive. Anyway, if she liked it she could always make up the time later, couldn’t she? How
simple it all sounded.On completion of her training, she worked for five years in a phenomenally busy
Accident and Emergency Department, which she adored. However, itchy feet got the better of her and
she headed off for a year in Australia with her younger sister.Six weeks before she came home Carol met
her future husband. Proof, she says, that whirlwind holiday romances can work. An extremely expensive
courtship followed. Long letters, longer telephone calls, and even longer air flights, until finally they
married and settled in Melbourne, Australia.Now seemed the perfect time to get her nursing on track, and
she applied and was accepted to do her Bachelor of Nursing. However, a vague feeling of nausea on
enrollment day was to change all that. Surely she could combine university with one tiny baby, couldn’t
she? After all, how much work could it be?Through all of this the desire to write a romance was there and
many a night was spent bashing away at the typewriter, and later the computer, but it was so much
harder than it first looked and she never managed to quite finish it….While pregnant with her second
child, a brilliantstory line came to her. The first book was unceremoniously shelved and she worked hard
on her masterpiece. Finally, she plucked up the courage to submit and smugly awaited its acceptance.
Of course, it was rejected and, in truth, it was absolutely awful, but an encouraging letter pointing out
where she had gone wrong (it was a long letter)


Carole Mortimer
Carole Mortimer is one of Harlequin's most popular and prolific authors. Since her first novel, published in
1979, this British writer has shown no signs of slowing her pace. In fact she just celebrated the publishing
of her 100th book!Her strong, traditional romances, with their distinct style, brilliantly developed
characters and romantic plot twists, have earned her an enthusiastic audience worldwide. Carole was
born in a village in England that she claims was so small that"if you blinked as you drove through it you
could miss seeing it completely!"She adds that her parents still live in the house where she first came
into the world, and her two brothers live very close by.Carole's early ambition to become a nurse came to
an abrupt end after only one year of training due to a weakness in her back, suffered in the aftermath of a
fall. Instead, she went on to work in the computer department of a well-known stationery company.During
her time there, Carole made her first attempt at writing a novel for Harlequin. "The manuscript was far too
short and the plotline not up to standard, so I naturally received a rejection slip," she says." Not taking
rejection well, I went off in a sulk for two years before deciding to 'have another go." Her second
manuscript was accepted, beginning a long and fruitful career. She says she has "enjoyed every moment
of it!"Carole lives "in a most beautiful part of Britain" with her husband, children, and menagerie of pets,
including a dog acquired several years ago in Canada, which is actually half-coyote! "I really do enjoy my
writing, and have every intention of continuing to do so for another 20 years!"

Chantelle Shaw
Chantelle Shaw grew up in London and enjoyed a blissfully happy childhood making up stories in her
head. Unsurprisingly, English was her favorite subject at school, but math and anything remotely
technical remain a complete mystery to her! She worked as a secretary and PA, and at twenty married
the wonderful man she had fallen in love when they were both teenagers. With the birth of her first child
the family moved to the Kent coast and Chantelle became a stay-at-home mum to her ever-growing family
that now includes six children, a dog and various other pets.Always an avid reader, Chantelle discovered
Mills & Boon romances as a teenager, and during the "nocturnal years" when her children refused to
sleep she would pace the floor with a baby in one hand and a book in the other! In her tiny amount of free
time she began scribbling stories of her own, and although Mills & Boon rejected these, she received
encouragement and advice from the editors to try again. However, the demands of trying to juggle family,
home and a variety of part-time jobs (including night-work-- she had given up on sleeping by then!) meant
that it was easier to write books in her head rather than put pen to paper.It wasn't until twenty years after
her first attempts at writing, when she was struggling to cope with the death of her adored mum, that
Chantelle was inspired to try again. She found that retreating into the fantasy world inside her head was
the only way to deal with her sadness, and she wanted to honor her mum who had always believed she
would one day become a published writer.To this day Chantelle enjoys romantic fiction because it offers
an escape into a fantasy world of glamour, excitement and, of course, gorgeous men! She hopes that the
books she writes give readers the same sense of enjoyment and relaxation. She likes to create strong,
sexy heroes and even stronger-willed, independent heroines who ultimately find the love and happiness
she has been lucky enough to have in her life
