Sophie Kinsella

 Sophie Kinsella, pseudonym for Madeleine Wickham, raced to the top of the bestseller lists in September 2000 when her novel The Secret Dreamworld of A Shopaholic was published by Black Swan. The book's heroine, Becky Bloomwood – a fun and feisty financial journalist who loves shopping but is hopeless with money – captured the hearts of readers worldwide and she has since gone on to further adventures in Shopaholic Abroad, Shopaholic Ties the Knot and Shopaholic and Sister, and has sold over two million copies to date. Sophie's two stand-alone novels, Can You Keep A Secret and The Undomestic Goddess were both number one bestsellers, and have sold in the region of three quarters of a million copies each.

Nicola Cornick

For the first 18 years of her life Nicola lived in Yorkshire, within a stone's throw of the moors that had inspired the Brontë sisters. She wrote bits and pieces of novels in her spare time but never finished any of them. Eventually, she sent in the first three chapters of a Regency romance to a publisher and, although they were rejected, she found she had become so addicted to writing that she could not stop. Happily, her third attempt was accepted and she has never looked back. Read more about The books of Nicola Cornick

A ballet dancer turned English teacher, Kimberly married an electrical engineer and turned her life into an ongoing episode of "When Dilbert Met Frasier." She and her Darling Geek live in beautiful North Alabama with their one Amazing Child--who, unfortunately, shows an aptitude to sports. Read more about The books of Kimberly Lang

Lyn Stone

While working at Boeing as an illustrator, Stone had the idea of trying to freelance book covers. Since she liked to paint faces and figures, romance novels seemed a logical choice. While studying the market on covers, she became firmly hooked on the contents of the books and decided to try writing instead. Lyn feels a special affinity for England and Scotland with their wonderful castles and intriguing history. The American South and Southwest are her favorite settings for contemporary adventures.
