Meet the Author




From the very beginning Stephanie loved to create characters. The youngest of six, a pleasant surprise as her mother liked to call her, she grew up basically as an only child with her closest sibling nine years her senior. But she had no problem entertaining herself. It all started with an imaginary friend named Gigi.

As she got older her imaginary friend grew into all different types of characters, each of whom had his or her own story to tell. By the time she was 12, she began writing those stories down, and after 206 handwritten pages, she had completed her first science fiction/fantasy novel.

Then came a pivotal moment when she read Kathleen Woodiwiss's Shanna. Once she discovered romance there was no going back. A dedicated reader, she quickly began writing her own romantic stories, some funny, some adventurous, but all delivering the quintessential happy ending.

At 18 she submitted her first story to Harlequin and by 26 she was published.

Now in her 30s, she struggles between the demands of her "day" job, her writing, and trying to find a little romance of her own.

She lives in South Jersey with her two cats, Alexandria Hamilton and Theodora Roosevelt. She wants to get a dog, but the cats have out-voted her.

And she spends every free minute she has doing the thing she loves best--writing!

Stephanie loves any kind of feedback. Email her at stephd_romance@hotmail.com.

    electrifying fast-paced espionage romance

    The email from brilliant Arnold Salinski addressed to GG (as he called her ¿ girl genius) immediately stated he was dead. To verify Sabrina ¿GG¿ Masters calls the number her mentor gave her. CIA Assistant Director Kreuger confirms that Arnold is dead and they arrange to meet in Gettysburg. Ironically the CIA fired her ten years ago yet she is the one that Salinski selected in an Einstein contest involving his last project, Deep Throat.--- Kreuger explains the Lithium isotope has the potential to be the strongest counter to global terrorism. However, only Salinski knew how to use it; some bad dudes are in country planning a neo 9/11, but with Salinski dead his work is useless. Not only do they want her to break into Salinski¿s computer, but help bring down internationally number one terrorist Kahsan who they believe plans to steal the technology. Agent Jack Quinlan, her former lover who betrayed her a decade ago, is assigned to protect her, but Kreuger makes it clear to her that her bodyguard Q who she never stopped loving is expendable.--- CALCULATED RISK is an electrifying fast-paced espionage romance starring an exceptionally different type of heroine and not just because of her brain power. Sabrina has spent the last decade working casinos using her intelligence for minor personal gain as she drifts through life since she learned her beloved Jack was engaged to someone else and the CIA canned her. Now she is their only hope, but still loves Jack who in her mind is not expendable as she simply has to save the world or at least America. Stephanie Doyle writes a fun thriller that climaxes with a slate of the hand.--- Harriet Klausner
