BIO :Shelli read her first romance novel when she was eleven. It was a Harlequin that she snuck off her mom's bookshelf, and she was forever hooked on romance novels. It wasn't until many years later that she decided to pursue writing stories of her own. By then she acknowledged the voices in her head didn't make her crazy, they made her a writer.
Shelli currently lives in the Pacific Northwest with her young daughter,where she is President of her local RWA (Romance Writers of America) chapter. She writes various genres of romance for Samhain Publishing, Cobblestone Press, and Highland Press.
