Meet the Author




Susanne James has enjoyed creative writing since childhood, completing her first--and sadly unpublished--novel by the age of twelve. She has three grown-up children who were, and are, her pride and joy and who all live happily in Oxfordshire with their families. She was always happy to put the needs of her family before her ambition to write seriously, although along the way some published articles for magazines and newspapers helped to keep the dream alive!

Susanne's big regret is that her beloved husband is no longer here to share the pleasure of her recent success. She now shares her life with Toffee, her young Cavalier King Charles spaniel, who decides when it's time to get up (early) and when a walk in the park is overdue!




Carole Mortimer is one of Harlequin's most popular and prolific authors. Since her first novel, published in 1979, this British writer has shown no signs of slowing her pace. In fact she just celebrated the publishing of her 100th book!

Her strong, traditional romances, with their distinct style, brilliantly developed characters and romantic plot twists, have earned her an enthusiastic audience worldwide.

Carole was born in a village in England that she claims was so small that ''if you blinked as you drove through it you could miss seeing it completely!'' She adds that her parents still live in the house where she first came into the world, and her two brothers live very close by.

Carole's early ambition to become a nurse came to an abrupt end after only one year of training due to a weakness in her back, suffered in the aftermath of a fall. Instead, she went on to work in the computer department of a well-known stationery company.

During her time there, Carole made her first attempt at writing a novel for Harlequin. ''The manuscript was far too short and the plotline not up to standard, so I naturally received a rejection slip,'' she says. ''Not taking rejection well, I went off in a sulk for two years before deciding to 'have another go.''' Her second manuscript was accepted, beginning a long and fruitful career. She says she has ''enjoyed every moment of it!''

Carole lives ''in a most beautiful part of Britain'' with her husband, children, and menagerie of pets, including a dog acquired several years ago in Canada, which is actually half-coyote!

''I really do enjoy my writing, and have every intention of continuing to do so for another 20 years!''




Abby Green was born in London, but soon afterwards moved back to her mother's native Dublin. She grew up there, going to boarding school just outside the city. As an only child, her love of books came early, and she read everything from Enid Blyton to George Orwell voraciously.

While on school holidays one year in her early teens, she discovered a Mills & Boon romance novel. The rest is history. Back in school, she would speed read the requisite reading--Wuthering Heights and Great Expectations--to allow time to squeeze in a couple of Mills & Boon books a week!

As time marched on, studying for exams and looking for work took time away from her romance books, although she'd always manage to make a dash into a bookshop and stock up when she could.

After final school exams, and on receiving a place in Sussex University to do social anthropology, Abby took a year out to make some money. In that year, completely by chance, she got a job as an assistant director on a short film. By the time the year was up and she was due to take her place in college, she was working on Braveheart! So another year was deferred... then another... then another. College fell by the wayside and she pursued a career in film and TV in Ireland. She's very lucky to have had the opportunity to experience working abroad over the years on different films in Malaysia, Slovakia and Namibia.

But the long hours and very unglamorous work began to take their toll after a decade! Her love for Mills & Boon books reared its head again. On the advice of a flatmate who often talked about trying to write a romance novel, Abby saw her chance to take another path.

After noting the requirements for sending a submission to Mills & Boon in London, she sat down and set to work. Even though her career didn't happen straight away and with one rejection before her acceptance, writing for the Modern/Presents line of Harlequin Mills & Boon felt so familiar it was almost uncanny!

To have been accepted and now published for the iconic Mills & Boon brand is a dream come true, and she hopes that you enjoy her books as much as she enjoys writing them! You can contact Abby at abbygreen3@yahoo.co.uk.
