With over 9 million books in print in over 21 languages, the North Carolina author never regrets tossing aside a budding career in academics (she has a Ph.D. in English literature) for the sheer joy of writing fun fiction, and hopes that one day a book of hers will end up saving the world.

An avid romance reader since junior high, USA Today bestselling author Heidi Betts knew very early on that she wanted to write these wonderful stories of love and adventure.

Soon after joining Romance Writers of America, Heidi’s writing began to garner attention, including placing in the esteemed Golden Heart competition three years in a row. Website

#8 GIVEAWAY: Sheila Roberts – An audio version of one of Sheila’s Life in Icicle Falls books

Sheila Roberts is happily married and lives in the Pacific Northwest. She did lots of things before settling into her writing career, including owning a singing telegram company and playing in a band. Her band days are over, but she still enjoys writing songs. Sheila’s books are best sellers and have been made into movies for the Lifetime and Hallmark channels. When she’s not speaking to women’s groups or at conferences or hanging out with her girlfriends she can be found writing about those things near and dear to women’s hearts: family, friends, and chocolate.

    I’ve been following Debbie Macomber for decades since the mid 80’s. I loved her Alaskan Nights series her Country Brides and Grooms, the Cedar Cove series and especially her annual Christmas hard cover selection. November Of My Heart was especially touching for me. My best friend lost her husband at the age of 38 from a rare bone cancer. Ellen was left to parent their two daughters 4 & 6. She also writes about Door County Wisconsin. I grew up an hour away ! Love to visit there and enjoy the friendly people and scenery. The cherries and Wood Orchard apples are delicious!

    I also have enjoyed Sabrina Jeffries’ historical romances for almost as long. Love her School for Heiresses series, her Hellions of Halstead Hall and her Sinners series


    I just started my first Carolyn Brown book, LONG, TALL COWBOY CHRISTMAS.
