Susan Gable

Susan Gable is a self-professed bookaholic. She has published under Harlequin and as an indie author, and has written a non-fiction book based on one of her popular workshops. One of the things she loves most about writing is that there's always something new to learn. She has finaled and won many awards, including RWA's prestigious Golden Heart and RITA awards. She has won the National Readers' Choice Award, the More than Magic contest, and the RIO (Reviewers International Organization) Dorothy Parker Award for Best Debut Novel. Three of her books have been named Top Picks and were nominated for the Superromance of the Year by the Romantic Times Bookclub Magazine, and she has been a Waldenbooks Bestseller. Readers and reviewers alike often tell her that she makes them laugh and cry while reading her books. Susan assures her readers there's something rewarding about sitting on this side of the books, too. She hopes she's giving readers hours of pleasure like other authors have for her.

Holly Jacobs

Holly Jacobs loves ice cream, seagulls, and thunderstorms. She's been in love with words ever since she can remember. From that love of reading, she seemed to naturally progress to writing, and when she "found" romance a little later in life, she fell head over heels for the genre. Why? Because it's a genre about relationships. She can add in any plot, but it all boils down to the people. Watching two characters overcome the odds, overcome themselves ... what could be more satisfying? She has sold almost three million books worldwide. Her category romances have made Walden's Bestseller List and won numerous awards including the Golden Leaf. She's won two of Romantic Times' Reviewers' Choice Awards and their prestigious Career Achievement Award for Series Love and Laughter. She's presented more than sixty workshops across the U.S. on a variety of writing-related subjects from writing romantic comedy to time management. Holly is the happily married mother of four, and has recently added cooking videos to her list of accomplishments.
