When Beverly was twelve years old, she waited impatiently, her allowance money in hand, for the next Trixie Belden or Nancy Drew book to hit the shelves. She was a sucker even then for a strong heroine.
Years later, when she discovered the Harlequin romance, she was hooked. What wasn’t to love about gorgeous people doing interesting things in exotic places? What wasn’t to love about a happy ending? And what wasn’t to love about a woman smart enough to bring her man to his knees?
She grew up in a small town in Illinois and married her high school sweetheart. Now, twenty-six years later, he’s still the love of her life. She feels blessed to have had the opportunity to raise two wonderful daughters. She earned both an undergraduate and graduate degree in business, has owned her own restaurant, and has spent the last fifteen years of her career as a human resources professional.
But, her love for the romance novel never diminished and she began penning her own stories in 1996. Her debut novel, Stay With Me, went on sale in early January, 2005. Beverly loves to hear from readers. You can contact her at BooksbyBeverly@aol.com.
