Meet the Author

Once upon a time, many years ago, when her two boys were small, and she was a stay at home mom, Christine Merrill decided it was time to fulfill her childhood dream and become a writer.Since romance writers were obviously the easiest sort of writer to be, she would do that. And she would live the lapdog petting, chaise lounging, tiara wearing life, just like Barbara Cartland, and be happy ever after.Years passed. She wandered in the wilderness and was punished for her hubris. She learned about writing: why it is bad to head hop, why she should have listened closer in 8th grade English on the whole ‘comflict thing’, and first hand what it was like to live stages three through eleven of the Hero’s Journey.And then, everything changed. She won the RWA’s Golden Heart contest for unpublished manuscripts. The winning story, soon to be known as THE INCONVENIENT DUCHESS, was bought by the contest judges, the delightful editors at Mills & Boon, in Richmond, Surrey.Chris is now living the life of her dreams which, strangely enough, is a lot like the life she always had. Her tiara is plastic and lights up if you press a button. Her chaise is an overstuffed recliner, and the labradoodle lounging on it thinks that, at seventy pounds, he is still puppy enough to sit on her lap.Her family has kept its sense of humor about her career change. Her sons are teenagers, and emphatically do not want to know what she’s writing. Her husband is adept at dodging questions about ‘romance writing research’. Her goldfish are unimpressed by her success and her two cats don’t give a damn either.And she lives happily ever after.

    Great Beach Read

    Liz Monahan is a troubled, sexually active young woman looking for love in all the wrong places . . . and in all the wrong beds. She's drifting from one failed relationship to the next, often finding out that the men with whom she's having trysts are married, or worse. And what could be worse? How about a lover who is setting you up for the kill? Or is he? Enter boring accountant Robert "Bob" Anderson. Or, is it Harper? Is it even "Bob?" Is he even an accountant? He's already tried to kill Liz once, by asphyxiation and while holding a gun to her head. Or did he? The dead guy on the floor wrapped in a shower curtain says, "Yes," but her heart tells her, "Maybe." Either way, it's not a particularly great way to start a first date. And then there's Bob's fiancée. Liz soon finds herself a pawn in a very deadly game between two equally deadly rivals. One, both, or neither may want her dead. One, both, or neither may want her in bed. Either might be her savior, or her executioner. Dating is so complicated nowadays. Need to Know is a lighthearted, fun read with some really witty dialog. The characters are real and the suspense both enjoyable and believable. If you're looking for a nice at-the-beach read you could do a lot worse than this. It's well worth the price of admission.
