Deborah Simmons began her career as a journalist, but left nonfiction for the world of happily ever afters. She's published twenty-eight romances with Avon, Harlequin, and Berkley, as well as an indie romantic comedy. Among them are a USA Today Bestselling anthology and her popular series on the medieval de Burgh family.
Her books A Lady of Distinction and The Gentleman Thief were finalists for Romance Writers of America's annual RITA competition. Two other releases, The Gentleman's Quest and Glory the Rake, were up for The Daphne du Maurier Award of Excellence for Mystery/Suspense.
Simmons has sold more than two million books in North America, and her work has been translated and published in thirty-one countries, with graphic novel editions available in Japanese.
