Two-time RITA Award winner Kristin Gabriel is the author of more than 20 published books and lives in rural Nebraska. Her first book, Bullets Over Boise, was selected as one of the Harlequin movies and can be seen on cable stations under the new title Recipe For Revenge. Two of her romantic comedies, Monday Man and Annie Get Your Groom, each won the Romance Writers of America prestigious RITA® award. Kris's new book, A Long Way Home, is a part of The Mysteries of Sparrow Island series from Guideposts and it will be released via their book club in July of 2006.

A busy mom with three active teenagers, she divides her time between writing and attending school activities. Her hobbies include reading and procrastination.



Sherry James Sherry James  

Nebraska native, Sherry James, spent her youth riding and writing. All those hours she spent on the back of a horse sure gave her plenty of time to think up stories. She grew up to become a rodeo queen and a published author. Guess all that riding and writing paid off! These days she’s a wife to an amazing husband, and the mother of two equally amazing kids. She still rides when she gets the chance, and has more than 80 magazine and newspaper articles and six books to her credit. She is a founding member and current president of the Prairieland Romance Writers, and a long-time member of Romance Writers of America and Wester Writers of America. You can find her romantic comedy series and her cowboy books at, or find her blogging at




Laura Landon Laura Landon  
Laura Landon didn't know she wanted to be a writer. She simply knew she was a compulsive reader. And the books she enjoyed reading most were romances.
Now, she spends her writing time in 19th Century England, creating her own heroes and heroines and taking them on their angst-ridden journeys to find their happily-ever-afters.

Julie Miller Julie Miller  

Julie Miller is an award-winning author--with a National Readers Choice Award and a Daphne du Maurier among other prizes. In 2009, she was honored to receive a Career Achievement Award in Series Romantic Suspense from Romantic Times Book Reviews. Several of her 40+ books have appeared on the USA Today, Borders/Waldenbooks and BookScan Top 100 Romances bestseller lists.

After writing single-title paranormals for Dorchester, Julie joined the Harlequin/Silhouette family when her first Intrigue, ONE GOOD MAN, was published in 2000. Since then, she has crafted the best-selling, award-winning Taylor Clan series for Intrigue, as well as its equally successful spin-off series, THE PRECINCT. While she continues to write about cops and crime scenes for Intrigue, Ms. Miller occasionally writes for Harlequin Blaze--where her romantic suspense books get a steamier twist, and her military heroes have been especially popular. She has also written for continuities and other special projects at Harlequin/Silhouette.

Julie is a teacher who grew up in Missouri and now lives in Nebraska with her husband (a teacher and YA author), son (a college student majoring in Music Business) and an assortment of spoiled pets. She's been dubbed the resident "Grammar Goddess" of her local writing group the Prairieland Romance Writers. You may write Julie at P.O. Box 5162, Grand Island, NE 68802-5162 or email her questions or comments at the contact address below.

Robin L. Rotham Robin L. Rotham  
A bookworm from the age of ten, Robin L. Rotham lived vicariously through daring, romantic heroines for nearly twenty years, dreaming all the while of one day writing her own romance novels, as well as her own happily ever after.

When she finally found her real-life hero, he wasn't quite what--or where--she expected. Undaunted, she chased him over three states and four years before he finally swept her off her feet. They’ve been married for more than ten years, have three children, and live on a farm in rural Nebraska.

The realities of home and family kept her from fulfilling her other dream for ten more years, but Robin finally succumbed to the writing bug in 2005 and cranked out her first novel on a used laptop from eBay in less than seven weeks. Alien Overnight is her second completed novel.
