Susan Mallery is the bestselling author of over 35 books for Harlequin and Silhouette. She is a reader favorite, publishing in the Harlequin Historicals, Silhouette Intimate Moments and Silhouette Special Edition lines.Best known for combining humor with emotion and creating extraordinary characters who live on in the imagination, Susan publishes five or six books each year.Susan is married and lives with her husband in sunny Southern California where the weather is always perfect and the eccentricities of a writer are considered almost normal. She has two beautiful but not very bright cats, and the world's greatest stepson. 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. Fiona Brand has been a bookaholic ever since she was old enough to turn pages, but she didn't begin writing until after the birth of her second child. She gave herself two years to get published. Five years and several rejections later, she finally sold her first book, Cullen's Bride, to Silhouette Intimate Moments.Other than writing romance, Fiona considers her life to be "Joe Average" ordinary. Before the writing career, she spent eight years working for the New Zealand Forest Service, where she learned the true meaning of power--holding the keys to the stationery cupboard and controlling the petty cash. When the power rush ended, she tried the other end of the spectrum--absolute slavery--and took up having children. When her youngest son turned three, she set about teaching herself the business of writing. She figured that after spending eight years as a clerk, she could spend at least that much time trying to get a novel published.Fiona's always lived in the country, and presently resides in the Bay of Islands, a subtropical fishing and diving paradise, with her two sons. As for pets...so far there are two goldfish and a budgie, but with a change of location looming in the near future, at least two cats and a dog are planned as welcome additions to the family.Because of the sheer isolation of New Zealand travel is always on the itinerary, especially with most of her family residing in other countries, but Fiona has found New Zealand hard to beat. She says it has all the extremes a writer could wish for, from rugged cowboy country and snow-covered alps to rainforest and white sandy beaches...and besides, it's home.When she's not writing or doing normal household things (like cleaning the budgie's cage and the goldfish tank), Fiona likes to spend her spare time with her children or catching up with friends. Her leisure activities include reading, walking, cooking, gardening, watching movies with the family, protecting her laptop from game-hungry kids, and of course, shopping. She's thinking of starting a daytime tai chi class to get out of the house and mingle with "normal" people who have "lives," and periodically tries to meditate in search of the elusive silence within. Unfortunately, she hasn't found that silence yet. Somehow there's always a grocery list in there, or a "feeling guilty because you haven't done this" list, or she gets hungry, or else a kid comes in.You can write to Fiona, who would love to hear from you, at: Fiona Brand, PO Box 18240 Glen Innes, Auckland 1130, New Zealand.
