Meet The Authors…

Award-winning and best-selling author Karen Rose Smith will see her 84th novel published in 2014. Although she has written romance novels for over 20 years, she has now branched into mysteries as well as women’s fiction. Writing for Kensington Books and Harlequin and indie publishing her Search For Love series, she still saves time for her three rescue cats, gardening, cooking, and photography. She has also developed many of her books into audiobooks! She looks forward to contact from her readers through her websites and loves to chat on Facebook and Twitter @karenrosesmith. Her next Caprice De Luca home-staging mystery, DEADLY DECOR, will be available in June.


Andrew Grey grew up in western Michigan with a father who loved to tell stories and a mother who loved to read them. Since then he has lived throughout the country and traveled throughout the world. He has a master’s degree from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Andrew’s hobbies include collecting antiques, gardening, and leaving his dirty dishes anywhere but in the sink (particularly when writing). He considers himself blessed with an accepting family, fantastic friends, and the world’s most supportive and loving partner. Andrew currently lives in beautiful, historic Carlisle, Pennsylvania.


Susan Gourley writes epic fantasy with her latest release, First Dragon, now available in stores and online as print or ebook. Writing as Susan Kelley, she has nine romances published, including the bestselling science fiction novel, The Marine’s Queen. Writing is her full time career, and she resides in central Pennsylvania in a large country home with her husband and children.


Vicky Burkholder grew up in the Mechanicsburg area, but now lives in Lititz. Her writing spans the fantasy, science fiction, paranormal and romance lines from YA to adult. No matter the age or genre, all of her books have a touch of romance in them and have to have a happily ever after ending. She currently publishes with Liquid Silver Books and Ellora’s Cave.


Megan Hart: I was born and then I lived awhile, and I did some things. Now I mostly write books. Some of them use bad words, but most of the other ones are all right. I can’t live without the ocean or music, and I can’t stand the feeling of corduroy. Visit me at


Natalie J. Damschroder grew up in Massachusetts, and despite living in Central PA longer than anywhere else, she loves the New England Patriots more than anything. (Except her family. And writing and reading. And popcorn.) When she’s not writing romantic adventure for Carina Press and paranormal romance for Entangled Publishing, she does freelance editing and works part time as a chiropractic assistant. She and her husband have two daughters they’ve dubbed “the anti-teenagers,” one of whom is also a novelist. (The other one prefers math. Smart kid. Practical.) You can learn more about her and her books at


Although Sara Walter Ellwood has long ago left the farm for the glamour of the big town, she draws on her experiences growing up on a small hobby farm in West Central Pennsylvania to write contemporary western romance. Living in Mount Holly Springs, PA, with her college sweetheart husband of 20 years, two teenagers and one very spoiled rescue cat named Penny, she longs to visit the places she writes about and jokes she’s a cowgirl at heart stuck in Pennsylvania suburbia. She also published paranormal romantic suspense under the pen name of Cera duBois.


Victoria Smith moved eight times before finally settling in Mechanicsburg. She writes paranormal, urban fantasy, and dystopian – all with romance. Who doesn’t love a happy ending? She currently publishes with Liquid Silver Books.


Gerry Trust is a former professional race-horse groom, artist, gardener, author, and the mother of five grown children. Her fondest memories from childhood include horses and books. Growing up, she regaled her classmates during lunchtime with “fan fiction” stories she invented based on characters in popular TV shows. Gerry joined Romance Writers of America in 2001, and for the last thirteen years has devoted herself to penning novels.


Geri Krotow is an award-winning novelist who has followed her dreams. She is proud to be a U.S. Naval Academy graduate, navy veteran, and now a retired navy spouse! Geri enjoys the beauty of Central Pennsylvania from her bike or with her dog at her side, and has made it her personal duty to “inspect” every yarn shop in PA. Find out about Geri’s navy romances at


Anson Barber grew up in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Southern Pennsylvania and now lives near Hershey, Pennsylvania, with her husband. She enjoys going on long motorcycle adventures, and recording the experiences in scrapbooks. She writes fantasy, paranormal, sci-fi, and contemporary romances.


Misty Simon loves a good story and decided one day that she would try her hand at it. Eventually she got it right. There’s nothing better in the world than making someone laugh, and she hopes everyone at least snickers in the right places when reading her books. She lives with her husband, daughter, and two insane dogs in Central Pennsylvania where she is hard at work on her next novel or three. She loves to hear from readers so drop her a line at


D.R. Grady lives with her husband near Hershey, PA. She loves gadgets, books, plants, shoes and writing stories that resonate with others. You can generally find her in her “office,” a chair in the living room, hopefully writing, but sometimes playing Angry Birds or reading.


Cate Masters has made beautiful central Pennsylvania her home, but she’ll always be a Jersey girl at heart. When not spending time with her dear hubby, she can be found in her lair, concocting a magical brew of contemporary, historical, and fantasy/paranormal stories with her cat Chairman Maiow and dog Lily as company. Look for her at and in strange nooks and far-flung corners of the web.
