Every book convention must have authors. There’s no question about it and I am working hard to ensure that we not only have a ton of fun people to hang out with, but there’s a wide range of genre talent as well. I know many readers tend to stick with their preferred genres, and there’s nothing wrong with that; but you never know what you’ll find, what you’ll like, until you take a leap of faith.
With that in mind, let me introduce you to two more fabulous authors who will be taking the plunge with me and coming to Rust City 2016! Make sure you keep an eye out as more authors are announced!
I am an award-winning staff writer for a weekly community newspaper chain in metro Detroit. I became hooked on romance fiction when my 11th grade English teacher rejected the book report I wrote, saying the book was much too easy for me, and insisted I read and report on Daphne du Maurier’s “Rebecca.” I read Margaret Mitchell’s “Gone With the Wind” that previous summer.
I took a long road through J-school, graduating from Oakland University in Rochester, Michigan in ’95, just shy of 20 years after I finished high school, raising a couple kids, working part-time and doing my homework while my husband and kids watched TV. Still I found time to read what my kids called my “mush books.”
I love the romance genre and love letting my characters take control of their stories. I am a member of the Greater Detroit Romance Writers of America.
