About Maya Banks

Kathie often sets her alarm for 2:00 a.m. so she can get in a few hours of writing before the rest of the house is up and about. With country tunes playing from a local radio station, Kathie crafts her stories with a unique style of sensuality, interspersed with a little humor.Her first book, a 1999 Romance Writers of America Golden Heart finalist (awarded for best unpublished book), was published as Did You Say Married?! by Silhouette Desire in May 2000 and was listed on the Waldenbooks category romance bestseller list. The Rough and Ready Rancher (March 2001) was also a Golden Heart finalist in 1996. Kathie and her husband have three children and live in the Illinois area her family settled in the early 1800s when they moved from North Carolina. Besides writing, Kathie loves to read romances, travel to historic locales, and delights in trying to rid the world of chocolate--one bite at a time! She also enjoys meeting readers and writers at the numerous conferences and workshops she attends. You can visit Kathie's web site at http://www.kathiedenosky.com or write to her at P.O. Box 2064, Herrin, IL 62948-5264. Brenda is a die-hard romantic who married her childhood sweetheart 30 years ago and still proudly wears the "going steady" ring he gave her when she was 15. Because she began believing very early in the power of love and romance, she can't help but write stories with happy endings. She is an award-winning bestselling author of more than 10 romance novels and looks forward to increasing that number. She and her husband live in the city where they were born, Jacksonville, Fla., and have two sons in college. She has a B.S. in business administration and presently works in management for a major insurance company. Coming home from work and sitting down to her computer to weave love stories is the highlight of her day. She and her husband spend time together traveling to discover those romantic places she could use as settings in her books.Brenda would love to hear from her readers. Write her at P.O. Box 28267, Jacksonville, FL 32226. You can also contact her through her email address, GJBJ@aol.com. Alexandra Sellers once sat down to try and count how many different places in her wandering life she has called home. She gave up when she reached forty homes in twelve cities and towns in six different countries. But she hasn't visited nearly as many places as she'd like yet.She started dreaming about exotic locales at the age of 10, when she first cracked the cover of a small collection of tales and pictures called The Arabian Nights. The stories were taken from The Thousand and One Nights, and names like Samarkand, Shiraz, and Baghdad still carry a magic for her which no amount of current history can overshadow.The stories must have triggered something else in her, too, for it was at this time that she first began to dream of writing herself. Following the advice of Jane Austen, though she hadn't read it yet, Alexandra wrote her first story about the world she knew, her cat. And following her own imagination, she wrote the cat's story from inside the cat's head.After beginnings like this, it flows naturally that her two favorite forms of fiction should become romance and science fiction. Her first romantic short story sold to the first magazine she sent it to; her first science fiction was simultaneously rejected.Alexandra was too naïve to realize how lucky she was with the romance story, and it never occurred to her to send the science fiction story to a different publisher. She concentrated on romance, and her only serious foray into that other world--so far--has been the fantasy satire Spoken Cat, published in 1997.In between bouts of travel and university, Alexandra has been a full-time writer since the publication of her first novel in 1980. Her favorite hobby is foreign languages, of which she has so far studied eight, sadly without becoming fluent in any. One of the most enjoyable periods in her life was the three years she recently spent at the School of Oriental and African Studies in London, where she was the first student ever to graduate in the double degree of Persian and Religious Studies.Alexandra lives with her husband, Nick, and a cat named Monsieur. The two of them are equal parts maddening and indispensable to her happiness.Alexandra welcomes visitors to her Web site at www.alexandrasellers.com. Maya Banks lives in southeast Texas with her husband and three children. When she's not writing, she loves to hunt and fish, bum on the beach, play poker and travel.Escaping into the pages of a book is something she's loved to do since she was a child. Now she crafts her own worlds and characters and enjoys spending as much time with them as possible.Maya loves to hang out with readers and dish books. You can find her at the Writeminded Blog as well as at her Yahoo! group, the Writeminded Readers. Tessa sold her first Silhouette Desire book after an online pitch on the eHarlequin.com Web site. "It was both scary and exciting, a bit like riding a roller coaster," says Tessa. "Once it started, everything happened so fast."Several sales followed in quick succession. A keen reader since childhood, Tessa is thrilled to join the author community here at eHarlequin.com. "It took a while to get over the unreality of it all, but it finally started to sink in. There's nothing more satisfying than working on a new story. I love getting to know a whole new set of characters and finding out what they want from life."There's one piece of advice that Tessa credits with getting her through the publication process. At the first weekend writing course she had ever attended, romance author Robyn Donald said that, to be published, a writer needed three things: talent (which hard work could polish), perseverance and luck. That stuck in Tessa's mind, and so her advice to would-be authors now is: "Hold on to your dream. Keep writing and never give up." You can contact Tessa though her Web site at www.tessaradley.com. And while you're there, don't forget to check out the fun page and enter Tessa's latest contest. Or you can come read with Tessa over at Team Novelchicks, part of the eHarlequin.com 2007 10,000 Book Challenge. Paula Roe traveled possibly one of the worst roads to publication. She persisted through fifteen years of what she calls "two steps forward and one step back"--encouraged by one editor only to have her leave and reassign Paula's book to an editor who rejected it, contest wins that didn't result in contracts and revisions that ultimately ended with the all-too-familiar rejection letter. But Paula learned from all of those experiences and kept at it; it wasn't possible for her to stop writing and what she wrote could only be Harlequin novels.Then, finally, on September 7, 2006, she got The E-mail. "I just laughed and cried. A lot. For about a week I couldn't stop smiling or telling everyone I met the great news," she says.From her experiences, Paula has learned a few things: "First, never stop learning. If you think you've got nothing more to learn, you shouldn't be writing because it takes an average of ten years to complete your writing apprenticeship," she says. "And those who get there under that time are freaks." And, of course, eHarlequin.com was one of her resources. She found the editors' threads were particularly helpful for finding out what they wanted in a submission.Paula's first book, Forgotten Marriage, will be out later in 2007, and she is now in the thick of a Desire continuity with authors Yvonne Lindsay, Bronwyn Jameson, Tessa Radley, Maxine Sullivan and Jan Colley, many of whom she's known for years. Look for that in 2008.And her second piece of advice? "Never give up."
