USA Today bestselling author Deborah Simmons began her career as a journalist, but left nonfiction for the world of happily ever afters. She's written historical romances originally published by Avon, Harlequin, and Berkley, as well as an indie romantic comedy.
Her books A Lady of Distinction and The Gentleman Thief were finalists in Romance Writers of America's annual RITA competition. Two other releases, The Gentleman's Quest and Glory and the Rake (now titled Glory and the Duke) were up for The Daphne du Maurier Award of Excellence for Mystery/Suspense. And her work has been translated and published in more than thirty countries, with some titles available as graphic novel editions.
She likes strong heroines, wry humor, a touch of mystery, and love that can't be denied.
