Carolyn McSparren's first Harlequin Superromance, The Only Child, published in January 1997, was a 1996 finalist in the Romance Writers of America Gold Heart Awards, a finalist in Romantic Times magazine's Best First Novel and Best Superromance categories, and a RITA finalist for Best First Book as well.
She has won two Maggie Awards from the Georgia Romance Writers, and has been a Golden Heart finalist twice. She was 1997 president of the River City Romance Writers, the Memphis chapter of Romance Writers of America, and is the found and first president of Malice in Memphis, the Memphis Chapter of Sisters in Crime, the national organization for mystery writers.
Her fourth Superromance, Fathers & Sons, was a March 1999 release, and her fifth, Mr. Miracle, a stand-alone follow-up to If Wishes Were Horses, is a September 1999 release.
Carolyn has lived in Germany, France, Italy and "too many cities in the U.S. to count." She now lives in the country outside of Memphis, Tennessee in an old house with two dogs, two cats, two horses and one husband -- "not necessarily in order of importance." At the moment, Carolyn is working on her next Superromance, tentatively titled Bless The Beasts And The Children, as well as a historical murder mystery set during the yellow fever epidemic of 1878.
