Robin Van Auken, writing as Madeline Sloane, is an author with more than a dozen published books, including several contemporary romance novels. Robin lives in the highlands of Northcentral Pennsylvania, along a peaceful river, with her husband, Lance Van Auken. She is a full-time writer and part-time college instructor.
She and her husband enjoy traveling to the United Kingdom and Europe, and spend much of their time abroad in ruins, castles, cathedrals and museums. She particularly enjoys crypts with mummies, musty libraries and authentic pubs. In the United States., they bounce along the East Coast, traveling from New England to Florida to visit family and friends.
Robin’s books include elements of her passions: travel, boating, scuba diving, history and archaeology. The characters are generally from idyllic Eaton, a fictitious town in Pennsylvania she has invented, although most of her books also feature exciting and exotic cities the heroines (and their lovers) visit during the course of their romantic journey.
She invites you to travel with the women and men of Eaton as they explore the world, and themselves, in the When Love Speaks contemporary romance series.
