Let us introduce ourselves. We're the HAPPILY EVER AFTER authors.

Hey there! I'm Judah Raine. I live in a leafy suburb of Durban, South Africa, called Westville. My grown daughter and I share a house overlooking a river with our zoo - seven of them in all! I love writing. It's my "grand passion" and I'm really excited to have one book released in 2008 with Siren-Bookstrand (Still Running) and The Look and A Thick Black Line coming out very soon. Being "creative-obsessive", I indulge in all sorts of things from music (I'm a guitarist and vocalist, and now stretching my wings as a songwriter) to beading, and pretty much anything else that comes my way. Life is great, and I'm really happy to be here...


I'm Bekki Lynn, a wife, mother and author of contemporary romance. I write sub-levels within this genre. I currently have a m/f series going, and I'm here to celebrate romance between one man and one woman, the ultimate love connection. Aside from writing, I'm an avid reader, love movies, television and music.


Hi! I’m Francesca Prescott. I live in a small village just outside Geneva, Switzerland with my husband, two teenage children and two dogs. I enjoy writing romantic comedy, as well as short, humorous articles. I have a romantic comedy set in Ibiza, Spain, published by BookStrand, and I'm currently rewriting a romantic saga set between England, California, Sicily and the island of Ithaca, Greece. Apart from writing, I enjoy horse riding, Pilates, Yoga, reading, music, watching movies and going for long walks in the countryside. I look forward to contributing to "Happily Ever After" with all these wonderful, talented authors!


waving hi from Norfolk, VA)
I’m BookStrand author, Lee Silver. My writing explores mainstream m/f romance in a framework of high tech intrigue. With a technical background in engineering, I love to write fast-paced drama staged in a not too distant future. If my stories can pull my readers away from the hustle and bustle of their lives long enough to put a smile on their faces when they head back to the real world, I couldn’t ask for more!


I'm Lindsay Townsend.I'm married, I live and work in England, Yorkshire. I love all things romantic and am looking forward to exploring and celebrating love and relationships in male-female romance. I am working on a medieval historical romance at the moment and have several historical romances and romantic thrillers published. I enjoy reading, nature, music and chocolate.


Hi, romance lovers, I'm Savanna Kougar. It feels like I've been writing some form of romance since forever, beginning when I was thirteen and the Beatles craze hit. Currently I'm living on what I call the tame prairie, and loving it. I enjoy writing paranormal romances, about any subgenre there is. So far, I have two shapeshifter novellas published, one near futuristic and one set in another dimension. I'm looking forward to exploring love in all its many romantic splendors with the other authors and with the readers.


Hi! My name is Jennifer Turner. I'm 30, married, and have a nine year old daughter I regularly refer to as the Heathen. I'm also an author of dark paranormal romance, and absolutely love writing about vampires and otherworldly creatures. I'm the new kid on the block in regards to this kick ass line-up of authors, but am looking forward to sharing my thoughts with everyone and celebrating the timeless dynamics of the male/female romance!


Koko Brown lives in Florida where she writes contemporary romance in various forms of paranormal, time-travel and historical, usually mixing them to bring life, love and romance beyond the depths to join soulmates. While not writing, Koko loves to travel, have great conversations, thrift store shopping, riding motorcycles (she recently sold a Yamaha 650 Classic), surfing the internet and working up the nerve to go snowboarding again.


Linda Banche is a brand new author and writes romances set in the Regency era. Her stories contain humor (most of the time), fantasy (sometimes) and occasionally the paranormal (once in a while). Linda read romances for years before she finally decided to write my own. She quickly found out it's a lot harder than it looks. She lives in New England and likes aerobics and ducks.
