Samantha A. Cole
USA Today Bestselling Author and Award-Winning Author Samantha A. Cole is a retired police officer and paramedic. She’s lived her entire life in the suburbs of New York City and is looking forward to becoming a snow-bird between New York and Florida someday.
An avid reader since childhood, Samantha was often found with a book in hand and sometimes one in each. After being gifted with a stack of romance novels from her grandmother, her love affair with the genre began in her teens. Many years later, she discovered her love for writing stories was just as strong. Taking her life experiences and training, she strives to find the perfect mix of suspense and romance for her readers to enjoy.
New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Elle James, also writing as Myla Jackson, is a former IT professional and retired Army and Air Force Reservist. With over 130 books under her belt, she writes romantic suspense, mysteries and paranormal romance that keeps her readers on the edges of their seats to the very end of every book. When she’s not at her computer, she’s traveling to exotic and wonderful places, snow-skiing, boating, or riding her four-wheeler, dreaming up new stories.
I joke that I “cut my romance teeth” on the old historical romance books. In 2013, I started a blog to showcase wonderful writers. In 2014, I finally gave in to the characters in my head pleading for their story to be told. Thus, Emma’s Home was created.
I worked as a counselor in a high school and was involved in education for the past 30 years, until retiring in 2015. I have been married to a wonderfully patient man for 35 years and have 2 adult, very supportive daughters. When writing, my dog or one of my cats will usually be found in my lap!
From childhood, author D.D. Lorenzo has been more an empath than she cared to be. Sensing the emotional connections between family and friends, she wrote her first story when she was six years old. The gift continued into adulthood and with the encouragement of a few New York Times Bestselling Authors, she took a leap of faith and published. With each day she aspires to be a better storyteller than she was the day before. In her spare time, she loves sinking her toes in the warm sands that border a crystal blue ocean or a peaceful lake. Her tastes are varied and eclectic so you can converse with her about most any topic. There are only two things she doesn’t like; judgmental people and okra.
