Nicky Charles is an independent writer/publisher who became an author quite by accident. For many years she wrote as a hobby, seeing herself a 'reader not a writer'. Now a full-time author, she thanks-or blames, depending on the day-her friend/editor and fellow author, Jan Gordon, for the career she now finds herself immersed in. When she writes, Nicky sees the story unfolding in her head like a movie and tries to include enough detail so readers can 'see' the story just as she does. The sights, sounds, smells and sensations of a scene are almost as important to her as the actual plot. Nicky lives in Canada and tries to stick to Canadian spelling and punctuation in her work. She is an avid supporter of animal shelters, nature conservancy, food banks and a variety of other charities. Currently, she has three 'official' cats though a number of strays seem to take up residence in her garden each year. When not writing, Nicky enjoys reading - though she often bemoans that she seldom has time for it any more. She also enjoys spending time in nature, gardening, taking day trips and eating dark chocolate.

Grace Grant has narrated almost 100 Romance audiobooks and been nominated for both a SOVAS and an Audie Award for her work.

I have always loved reading, and now I've found a new way to embrace that love even more, by narrating audiobooks. I enjoy a well told story, especially one with a fiesty and funny heroine, and I have been lucky to be given the opportunity to voice so many wonderful characters.

When I'm not recording in my home studio, or in a publisher's studio, I like to spend time attempting to cook (I'm slightly better at baking? maybe?), talking with friends, watching movies (definitely comedic, often romantic), and planning a trip somewhere (preferably where I can stick my feet in the sand).
