Meet the Author

Shiree McCarver has always been a dreamer of the possibilities of being in love, but somewhat found her reality lacking the romance she always dreamt about. She decided to bring fantasies to life by creating stories of unconditional love with characters that are in it for the long haul no matter what or who hinders the process. It's this process that has her being the first author to write an Elizabethan romance featuring and African woman in an interracial relationship with an English royal. She is also the first author to pen a story about an aging African American woman and a younger Japanese Pop star in modern day Japan.
Alabama native Shiree McCarver is building a following for her Asian Heroes and her ability to go where no one has dared to go before in books featuring characters in an interracial relationship. Being an avid reader of romances Ms. McCarver decided to write the type of books she felt were missing from the genre.

Ms McCarver has written beautiful heart touching tales of love and she makes it work in the most seemingly impossible character pairing. No matter who you are you will be able to relate to the only thing that matters in a true romantic read; the developing love story between the characters.
Ms. McCarver's books are as blunt and in your face about issues as she is about the audience she's reaching out to. Her stories evoke questions we dare not ask and take us to places we dare not go; that is, unless you're one to read outside the box.

Shiree loves hearing from her readers! E-mail:

    Wonderful story

    This is the first book that I have read of Shiree McCarver...it is official I am NOW A FAN! She is a wonderful writer, and I really enjoyed this story. Oh yes, thanks for the long sample. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is at the beginning of the book the main charcter explained about his parents being poor and his mother being ill and because of all the medical bills he committed suicide. Then toward the end of the book he brought up his childhood again and stated he did not know anything about his father...so I am a bit confused about that...not sure if the SAMPLE which includes over half of the book is different from the actual book...but needless to say this is a wonderful novel. Great job Ms. McCarver!
