Bestselling Author Janice Maynard
I am certainly not a shining example of overnight success! I realized in the third grade that I loved writing stories for others to read, but it was not until the fall of 1996 that I finally sold my first book.
Hilary Sares, a great editor at Kensington Publishing, left a message on my answering machine. When I came home from school and played it... I was over the moon. The book came out in the spring of 1997.
Anyone will tell you that being a mom and a wife, working full-time, and trying to write is sometimes a frustrating challenge, but it is worth every minute when you see that first box of books arrive on your doorstep!
After publishing many fun books with Kensington and Penguin, I am so happy now to be writing for Harlequin Desire.
With some regret I left my teaching position in the fall of 2002, and I am now writing full-time. I miss the children and my many friends and co-workers, but I love creating heroes and heroines who find a "once in a lifetime" love.
