Three amazing, New York Times bestselling authors will headline our 2014 Spring Fling Conference. We are thrilled to introduce:
Called “the master of small-town romance” by Romantic Times, Kristan Higgins is a New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author and two-time winner of the Romance Writers of America RITA® Award.
She has been called “a rising superstar in contemporary romance” by USA TODAY, who went on to praise her “genius-level EQ and whippet-fast, funny dialogue.” Kristan’s novels have featured starred reviews from Publishers Weekly, Booklist, Kirkus Reviews and Romantic Times.
Kristan lives in her hometown with her brave and heroic firefighter husband of 20 years and two lovely children who sport long eyelashes and advanced vocabularies. The family shares their home with a hyperactive mutt named Willow and an occasionally affectionate feline named Huck. When she is not writing or baking cookies, Kristan can be found watching the New York Yankees and Googling her latest celebrity crush. Visit her website at www.kristanhiggins.com or at www.Facebook.com/KristanHigginsBooks.
Mary Balogh grew up in Wales and moved to Saskatchewan, Canada, more than forty years ago on a two-year teaching contract. She stayed to marry and raise a family of three, to teach high school English and ultimately to put into practice her lifelong dream of writing. She and her husband now divide their time between the small town of Kipling (summers) and the capital of Regina (winters).
She has written close to 100 novels and novellas, most of which are set in 19th century Regency England and all of which are love stories. They include the New York Times bestselling SLIGHTLY, SIMPLY, and HUXTABLE series and the ongoing SURVIVORS’ CLUB septet.
The story goes like this – While on pregnancy bed rest, Lauren Dane had plenty of down time so her husband took her comments about “giving that writing thing a serious go” to heart and brought home a secondhand laptop. She wrote her first book on it before it gave up the ghost. Even better, she sold that book and never looked back.
Today Lauren is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of over fifty novels and novellas across several genres. Though she no longer has to deal with Polly Pocket and getting those tiny outfits on and off, you may catch her in a nostalgic moment when the house is silent because the kids are all in school and she can get work done. Just a moment though.
