About the author

Anna J Stewart is the author of mainstream contemporary romance (The Tremayne Family Romances for Berkley) , sweet romance novels (for Harlequin Heartwarming) and the recently launched Lantano Valley Novella series (sweet to steamy contemporary romances). 


A former RWA Golden Heart finalist, Anna was the girl who spun circles on the playground hoping her Wonder Woman costume would appear before playing cops and robbers a la Charlie's Angels--as Sabrina of course--she was the smart one. Anna was the girl in the back of the classroom with a paperback romance hidden in her algebra book (yes, she failed algebra), or hunched over her desk writing mini-romances featuring her friends and their Hollywood crushes.

She can't remember not having a book in her hand or a story in her head. An early fan of Stephen King and Dean Koontz, it was discovering the romance section of her local used bookstore and the novels of Nora Roberts that made her realize writing romance was what she was meant to do. Now that dream is a reality. Anna's heroines don't need a man but when they find the one they want, the adventure and fun begins.

A graduate of California State University of Sacramento where she majored in English (okay, she majored in reading), she lives in Northern California where she manages countless characters living in her head, deals with a serious addiction to STAR TREK, SUPERNATURAL, and SHERLOCK and tolerates an overly affectionate cat named Snickers (or perhaps it's Snickers who tolerates her).
