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!" Rebecca Winters, an American writer and mother of four, lives in Salt Lake City, Utah. When she was 17, she went to boarding school in Lausanne, Switzerland, where she learned to speak French and met girls from all over the world. Upon returning to the U.S., Rebecca developed her love of languages when she earned her B.A. in secondary education, history, French, and Spanish from the University of Utah and did postgraduate work in Arabic.Because of her studies overseas, Rebecca decided to become a teacher and studied French and history at her alma mater in Utah. For the past 15 years, she's taught junior-high and high-school French and history, and says she got into serious writing almost by accident."I went through a back door to begin my writing career," she says. "In the first place, I never liked to write anything--I only wrote mandatory papers for school. If anyone had told me I would become a writer, let alone love it, I would have laughed and dismissed the notion as absolutely absurd and preposterous. "Having said that, I did write letters to my parents while I was away at boarding school when I was 17. My mother kept them and one day, after I had become a mother for the second time, she sent me all my old letters and asked me to write my memories from them for posterity. At the time I thought she was insane, but because I adore my mother I did as she asked."By the time I'd finished sorting through all those teenage thoughts, observations and opinions, the seeds of a story had begun to form in my mind. The seed eventually became a novel and was published in 1979. It was called The Loving Season, published under the name Rebecca Burton. Naturally, it takes place in Switzerland and France."As soon as I finished that novel, I found myself wanting to start another novel entitled By Love Divided, a World War II romance. A few years later, Harlequin bought a novel, Blind to Love, a story that takes place in Kenya. It's been a love affair ever since."I guess the moral of the story is, never underestimate a mother's intuition!" As Rebecca has kept writing, her talents have not gone unrecognized. She has won the National Readers' Choice Award, the Romantic Times Reviewers' Choice Award, and has been named Utah Writer of the Year. Right now, Rebecca is working her way toward her 50th novel for Harlequin. She welcomes visitors to her web site at Marion was raised in a farming community in practically the only part of Australia that's wet all year round. With no entertainment but reading and no one to talk to but cows, it's no wonder she turned to writing. But they didn't put romance writer in the career handbook at her local school, so she pursued something she thought might make her a better living.Marion ended up teaching statistics and computing at her local university. She married, she had a couple of kids, she collected dogs, cats, chooks, goldfish--the full domestic catastrophe--but her first love was always romance. She penned her first novel while on family leave with her second child. Dare to Love Again was published in 1990 and stands as a testament to a family's ability to survive on spaghetti and toasted sandwiches.Marion's now written over 50 romance novels. She wrote under the pseudonym Trisha David to separate her Tender Romance novels from her Medical Romance books, so if you're looking for older books, try Trisha.She's given up teaching. She'd give up housework if only the animals would stop molting and the kids would learn to clean up (so...she's a dreamer). She daydreams in the garden and calls it gardening. She daydreams while traveling and calls it research.Mostly, she indulges in her first love--romance.
