After meeting her husband in college
over twenty years ago, Kristin made the bumpy transition from city girl to farm
wife, providing plenty of fodder for her stories. A busy mom with three
active teenagers, she divides her time between writing and attending
school activities. Her hobbies include reading and procrastination.
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 to her credit. She is a founding member and current president of
the Prairieland Romance Writers, and a long-time member of RWA. You can

LoRee and her husband have tackled some
interesting projects over the course of their married life. For
one, they built the home they live in with their own hands. They
used to want more acres further away from city life, but one day
LoRee realized they had their “greener on the other side of the
fence” already. All it took was removing that fence made of
trees and bushes.
She feels grounded in her sense of place
and considers it a blessing to have lived most of her life in
the country. Published Nebraska writings have appeared in
academic journals and anthologies. Her first inspirational
romance, MOSELLE’S INSURANCE is scheduled to appear soon from
White Rose Publishing.

|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.
