Author Bio

Author Susan Mallery is a New York Times best-selling author, and has written more than 80 Harlequin and Silhouette romance books, and a number of full-length romance novels. Unbelievably, she began writing in this genre after taking a class offered st a local community center entitled, "How to Write a Romance Novel". It seems almost too simplistic to believe. She now has more than 25 million books sold worldwide. She is known for creating characters who are as familiar as the people next door. They are usually involved in emotional, funny situations that the reader can easily identify with in their own lives.

Susan Mallery grew up in southern California, and admits to moving so many times that her friends used a pencil so her address could be easily changed. She is very much interested in animals and their well-being, so she incorporates various pets in her stories. Mallery's books have been translated into 28 languages. She lives in Washington state with her husband, two cats, and a small poodle who, as she describes it, "has delusions of grandeur".

An interesting side Story is that her friend, author Debbie Macomber gave her a bottle of champagne to open when she had her first New York Times #1 selling novel. In August 2015, she finally made the #1 list with her novel, Thrill Me, which debuted at the #1 spot. Mallery opened the champagne the night she found out the news, and raised a toast to Debbie and to her great readers who helped her reach that goal.

Susan Mallery always promises another year of happy books, and wishes her fans happy reading!
