Multi-published, award-winning author Rita Herron fell in love with books at the ripe age of eight when she read her first Trixie Belden mystery. She has sold over sixty romance novels to date and loves writing dark romantic suspense tales, sexy romantic comedies and family romances, especially books set in southern small towns. Before turning to the adult market, she taught kindergarten, was a professional storyteller for children, wrote nine books for Francine Pascal’s Sweet Valley Kids series and several non-fiction articles for a children’s magazine.
She was born in Milledgeville, Georgia, has three grown children and even though she’s way too young to be a grandmother, has three grandchildren she adores and loves to spoil rotten!
