Bestselling author Jennifer Mikels was a longtime reader of historical romances before she penned her first contemporary romance. Since then, she's had over 25 books published. Many of her books have appeared on USA Today, Waldenbooks and B. Dalton bestseller lists. A native Chicagoan, she moved with her husband and two sons to Arizona, and has lived with them in Phoenix for the past 23 years. An animal lover, Jennifer enjoys long walks, reading, antique shopping, seeing a good movie, especially a romantic comedy or a mystery, and spending time with her family and her collie-shepherd. Above all else, she feels she's been blessed to have such a wonderful family. She loves to hear from readers.
