Meet the Author


Award-winning author Cheryl Anne Porter takes another leap into contemporary mainstream fiction and lands with delightful aplomb in Popping the Question. This follows the success of her single title contemporary debut, Mad About Maddie--an ingeniously funny, thoroughly modern blend of humor and romance. Porter's flair for creating smart, witty dialogue and intelligent, believable characters unwittingly bedeviled by life's quirkier twists has made the author a consistent favorite with readers and reviewers alike.  A National Readers choice Award winner, Porter is best known for her gripping historical romantic suspense. Captive Angel earned Publishers Weekly's prestigious Starred Review for the author in 1999. Her other historical titles have garnered consistent critical acclaim and numerous honors, not least of which was the Library of Congress selecting Jessie's Outlaw for its Rare Book Collection. The prolific writer also has a second place Madcap Comedy Award finish to her credit. A popular keynote and workshop speaker, Porter teaches college-level  fiction writing near her home on Florida's West Coast.

    enjoyable romantic romp

    In Baltimore, Chris Adams has second and third thoughts about using POPPING THE QUESTION to help him propose to his girlfriend Veronica Alexander. However, thinking four years of dating is enough, he finds the courage to enter the facility only to see chaos as four women seem to be wrestling with an overweight male. Company owner Dianna West explains that they are trying to help a client get off the floor because his knees gave out while practicing to propose. <P>Dianna knows not to get involved with a client, but finds she desires Chris. He feels the same way though he wonders why as he has a girlfriend. As fate seem to keep placing Dianna and Chris in the same environs such as a wacky restaurant scenario, both resists the temptation even if love seems the force that draws them together. <P>Though the use of fate is overdone (what are the odds of the same restaurant in a city as big as Baltimore is?), the audience will enjoy this romantic romp reminiscent of the screwball comedies of Hepburn in the 1930s. The story line amuses the reader through the antics of the secondary cast and the humorous bantering of the lead couple. Cheryl Anne Porter provides those fans of a sparkling jesting romance with a fun time. <P>Harriet Klausner
