Author Bio
Penny Jordon
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!


Cathy Williams
Cathy was born in the West Indies and has been writing Mills & Boon romances for some 11 years. She
is a great believer in the power of perseverance as she had never written anything before (apart from
school essays a lifetime ago!), and from the starting point of zero has now fulfilled her ambition to pursue
this most enjoyable of careers. She would encourage any would-be writer to have faith and go for it!She
loves the beautiful Warwickshire countryside with her husband and three children, Charlotte, Olivia, and
Emma. When not writing she is hard-pressed to find a moment's free time in between the millions of
household chores, not to mention being a one-woman taxi service for her daughters' never-ending social
lives.She derives inspiration from the hot, lazy, tropical island of Trinidad (where she was born), from the
peaceful countryside of middle England and, of course, from her many friends, who are a rich source of
plots and are particularly garrulous when it comes to describing Mills & Boon heroes. It would seem, from
their complaints, that tall, dark, and charismatic men are way too few and far between!Her hope is to
continue writing romance fiction and providing those eternal tales of love for which, she feels, we all strive.


Sarah Morgan
Sarah was born in Wiltshire and started writing at the age of eight when she produced an autobiography
of her hamster.At the age of 18 she travelled to London to train as a nurse in one of London's top teaching
hospitals, and she describes what happened in those years as extremely happy and definitely censored!
She worked in a number of areas after she qualified, but her favourite was A&E where she found the work
stimulating and fun. Nowhere else in the hospital environment did she encounter such good teamwork
between doctors and nurses. By now her interests had moved on from hamsters to men, and she started
writing romance fiction.Her first completed manuscript, written after the birth of her first child, was
rejected by Mills & Boon, but the comments were encouraging, so she tried again, and on the third
attempt her manuscript Worth the Risk was accepted unchanged. She describes receiving the
acceptance letter as one of the best moments of her life, after meeting her husband and having her two
children.Sarah still works part-time in a health-related industry and spends the rest of the time with her
family trying to squeeze in writing whenever she can. She is an enthusiastic skier and walker and loves
outdoor life.


Catherine George
Catherine George was born in a village on the Welsh-English border, where the public library featured
largely in her life. Her mother, who looked upon literature as a basic necessity of life, fervently
encouraged Catherine's passion for reading, little knowing it would one day motivate her daughter into
writing her first novel.At 18, Catherine met her husband, who after their marriage swept her off to Brazil,
where he worked as Chief Engineer of a large gold-mining operation in the mountains of Minas Gerais, a
setting which later provided a very popular background for several of Catherine's early novels. Nine happy
years passed there before the question of their small son's education decided their return to Britain.Not
long afterward a daughter was born, and for a time Catherine lived a fulfilled life as a wife and mother who
always made time to read, especially in the bath! Her husband's job took him abroad again, to Portugal,
West Africa, and various countries of the Middle East, but this time she stayed home with the family.
And spent a lot of lonely evenings in between the reunions when her husband came home on
leave.''Instead of reading other people's novels all the time,'' he suggested one day, ''why not have a shot
at writing one yourself?'' So Catherine did.But first she took a creative writing course. Encouraged by the
other students' enthusiasm for her contributions, she decided to try her hand at romance, and read
countless Mills & Boon novels as research before writing one herself. Her first novel, which Romantic
Times voted best of its genre for that year, was accepted, along with all 54 written since.These days son
and daughter have fled the nest, but they return with loving regularity to where Catherine and her husband
-- back for good from his travels -- live, with Prince, the most recent Labrador, in a house built at the end
of Victoria's reign in four acres of garden on the cliffs between the beautiful Wye Valley and the River
Severn.


Jennie Lucas
Jennie Lucas had a tragic beginning for any would-be writer: a very happy childhood. Her parents owned a
bookstore and she grew up surrounded by books, dreaming about faraway lands. Her mother read aloud
to her in French when she was little; when she was ten, her father secretly paid her a dollar for every
classic novel (Jane Eyre, War and Peace) that she read. Jennie covered her bedroom with travel posters
and always had her nose in a book.At fifteen, she went to a Connecticut boarding school on scholarship.
She took her first solo trip to Europe at sixteen then put off college and traveled around the U.S.,
supporting herself with jobs as diverse as gas station cashier and newspaper advertising assistant.At
twenty-two, she met the man who would be her husband. For the first time in her life, she wanted to stay
in one place as long as she could be with him. After their marriage, she graduated from Kent State
University with a degree in English and started writing books a year later.Jennie was a finalist in the
Romance Writers of America's Golden Heart contest in 2003 and won the award in 2005. A fellow 2003
finalist, Australian author Trish Morey, read Jennie's writing and told her that she should write for
Harlequin Presents. It seemed like too big a dream, but Jennie took a deep breath and went for it. A year
later, after seven years of writing and eight finished manuscripts, Jennie got the magical call from London
that turned her into a published author.Since then, life has been hectic, juggling a writing career, a sexy
husband and two young children, but Jennie loves her crazy, chaotic life. Who needs a clean house?
Every day, Jennie gets swept into drama, glamour and passion. Now if she can only figure out how to
pack up her family and live in all the places she's writing about!


Annie West
Annie spent her formative years on the east coast of Australia and grew up in a book-loving family. One of
her earliest memories is of lying tucked up in bed, drowsy after an afternoon's adventure in the rainforest
gully that was her backyard, and listening to her father read The Wind in the Willows. She got hooked on
romance early. In her teens she spent long afternoons playing tennis with her best friend. Between
endless games on baking gravel, they'd stagger to her friend's house to recover, and in that house was an
unending store of books, all with that distinctive rose on the cover. That's how Annie discovered romance
and she's been addicted ever since. All those strong silent types, flashing-eyed Italians, haughty Spanish
aristocrats and the rest.
