Harlequin Historical author, Carolyn Davidson, wrote her first published work at the age of ten, when her sixth grade teacher sent in a short story to The Detroit News. Writing on the school newspaper during her high school years offered a chance to see her byline on a weekly basis — and she was hooked. After taking time out to marry, then working at a full-time job as they raised a large family, she and her husband moved from Michigan to the Charleston, SC area, where she sat down in front of a computer for the first time.
In 1991, she sold a short contemporary to Meteor, a publishing house that has since folded, and then, upon the advice of her agent, Pattie Steele-Perkins, she explored the historical genre. In 1995 her first historical novel, Homespun Bride, was released by Kensington. A move to Harlequin Historicals produced her first book for that company, Gerrity’s Bride, and since 1995 she has seen seventeen more books published with the distinctive Harlequin logo on the spine. Foreign copies of her works have a place of honor on her bookshelf, with over a dozen countries represented.
A charter member of the Lowcountry Romance Writers, she has spoken before community groups, judged national contests and finds satisfaction in helping aspiring authors become published. But of primary importance in her life is her family, most of them living many miles distant from South Carolina. Her husband, Ed, is retired, and spends much of his time directing her activities, planning trips for research and keeping her on course.
