About the Author: Carolyn Brown

Hi I m twenty five years old and movie star gorgeous The camera added thirty plus years and a few wrinkles Can t trust those cameras or mirrors either Along with bathroom scales they are notorious liars Honestly, I am the mother of three fantastic grown children who ve made me laugh and given mestory ideas than I could ever write My husband, Charles, is my strongest supporter and my best friend He s even willing to eat fast food and help with the laundry while I finish onechapter Life is good and I am blessed Reading has been a passion since I was five years old and figured out those were words on book pages As soon as my chubby little fingers found they could put words on a Big Chief tablet with a fat pencil, I was on my way Writing joined reading in my list of passions I will read anything from the back of the Cheerio s box to Faulkner and love every bit of it In addition to reading I enjoy cooking, my family and the ocean I love the Florida beaches Listening to the ocean waves puts my writing brain into high gear.I love writing romance because it s about emotions and relationships Human nature hasn t changed a bit since Eve coveted the fruit in the Garden of Eden Settings change Plots change Names change Times change But love is love and men and women have been falling in and out of it forever Romance is about emotions love, hate, anger, laughter all of it If I can make you laugh until your sides ache or grab a tissue then I ve touched your emotions and accomplished what every writer sets out to do.I got serious about writing when my third child was born and had her days and nights mixed up I had to stay up all night anyway and it was very quiet so I invested in a spiral back notebook and sharpened a few pencils The story that emerged has never sold but it s brought in enough rejection slips to put the Redwood Forest on the endangered list In 1997 Kensington bought two books for their Precious Gems line Two years and six books later the line died with only four of those books seeing publication But by then Avalon had bought a book and another, and another Ten years later the list has grown to thirty nine Last year Sourcebooks bought the Lucky Series which is in the bookstores now They ve also bought The Honky Tonk Series which will debut with I LOVE THIS BAR in June and will be followed by HELL, YEAH, MY GIVE A DAMN S BUSTED, and HONKY TONK CHRISTMAS.Folks ask me where I get my ideas Three kids, fifteen grandchildren, two great grandchildren Note I was a very young grandmother Life is a zoo around here when they all come home In one Sunday afternoon there s enough ideas to keep me writing for years and years Seriously, ideas pop up at the craziest times When one sinks its roots into my mind, I have no choice but to write the story And while I m writing the characters peek over my shoulder and make sure I m telling it right and not exaggerating too much Pesky little devils, they are I have a wonderful agent, Erin Niumata, who continues to work magic and sell my work I m very lucky to have her and my editors who continue to believe in me.Happy reading
