About Jo Leigh

Tara Taylor Quinn's love affair with Harlequin began when she was fourteen years old and picked up a free promotional copy of a Harlequin Romance book in a hometown grocery store. The relationship was solidified the year she was suspended from her high school typing class for hiding a Harlequin Romance novel behind the keys of her electric typewriter. Unaware that her instructor loomed close by, Ms. Quinn read blissfully on with one finger resting on the automatic repeating period key. She finished the book in the principal's office. Forced to leave her romances in her locker after that, Ms. Quinn's typing skills improved, a fact for which she is eternally grateful.Though she wrote her first story at the age of seven, Ms. Quinn's professional writing career didn't begin until ten years later when she was hired as a stringer with the Dayton Daily News in Dayton, Ohio. Ms. Quinn was certified to teach high school English and published several magazine articles before turning to writing as a full-time occupation. She sits at her keyboard ten hours at a stretch these days-- typing romances.Harlequin published Ms. Quinn's first book, Yesterday's Secrets in October, 1993. It received two Reviewers choice nominations, and was a finalist for the Romance Writers of America's RITA Award for Best Long Contemporary. Her succeeding novels have continued to garner recognition and awards. April of 2001 marked the release of Ms. Quinn's first single title novel, Sheltered in His Arms, and May 2001 saw her debut on the USA TODAY Bestseller List. Most recently her works have been featured on the Waldenbooks Bestseller List and achieved finalist status in the National Readers' Choice Award, Holt Medallion, Bookseller's Best Award, as well as the RITA Award.With more than 40 original sales over twelve years, Ms. Quinn's books are found worldwide, with many foreign translations and more than four million copies sold. In addition to her novels, the prolific author has written two novellas; two in a continuity series and the launch book for another; and an Internet story. She has had one of her books released in Rocketbook format. October of 2000 marked the debut of the Shelter Valley Stories, a Tara Taylor Quinn series set in the fictional town of Shelter Valley, Arizona. The series has grown to nine books.Ms. Quinn began writing for the MIRA imprint in 2003 and these emotionally gripping, character-driven stories are keeping readers on the edge of their seats. Her most recent MIRA novel, Hidden, was released in July 2005 and the next, In Plain Sight, is due for release in October 2006.When she's not writing or fulfilling speaking engagements, Ms. Quinn enjoys traveling and spending time with her family and friends. She has also been an award-winning public speaker, a synchronized swimmer, an archer, and studied fencing and ballroom dancing, as well as being a wife and mom. How did Margaret start writing? She was home with two small children, and her friend Cheryl, who was apparently born clutching a romance novel, gave her The Wolf and the Dove by Kathleen Woodiwiss. Margaret loved it. It was like the romantic adventures she'd enjoyed growing up-- albeit much sexier. Then she thought: Wouldn't it be fun to write a story like that? Margaret took a course in popular fiction writing at the University of Toronto, and through that, found Romance Writers of America. Three years later, in 1991, she sold her first historical romance and the premiere book of her Warrior Series, A Warrior's Heart, to the Harlequin Historical series. Her books have since been published in France, Italy, Germany, Great Britain, Belgium, Switzerland, Brazil, Korea, Japan, Sweden, the Netherlands, Russia, Poland and Czechoslovakia.One of her books, The Viking, won an award as Best Foreign Historical from Affaire de Coeur and two of her heroes have received K.I.S.S. (Knights In Shining Silver) Awards from Romantic Times. She was a Romantic Times finalist for Career Achievement in Medieval Historical Romance.

She currently lives in Australia, but travels to the United States as often as possible to visit family. I've always wanted to write — which is not to say I've always wanted to be a professional writer. One the contrary, for years I wrote only for my own pleasure, and it wasn't until my husband suggested that I ought to send one of my stories to a publisher that we put several publishers names into a hat and pulled one out. The rest as they say in history. And now, 150 books later, I'm literally — excuse the pun — staggered by what happened.I had written all through my infant and junior years and on into my teens, the stories changing from children's adventures to torrid gypsy passions. My mother used to gather these up from time to time, when my bedroom became too untidy, and dispose of them! The trouble was, I never used to finish any of the stories, and Caroline, my first published book, was the first book I'd actually completed. I was newly married then, and my daughter was just a baby, and it was quite a job juggling my household chores and scribbling away in exercise books every chance I got. Not very professional, as you can see, but that's the way it was.I now have two grown-up children, a son and daughter, and two adorable grandchildren, Abigail and Ben, aged eleven and nine respectively. My email address is: and I'd be happy to hear from any of my readers. Kara Lennox is the bestselling author of more than fifty published novels of romance and romantic suspense.
