Maxine Sullivan, a USA Today bestselling author, credits
her mother for her lifelong love of romance novels, so it was a natural
progression for her to want to write them. This led to over 20 years of
submitting stories and never giving up her dream of being published. That dream
came true in 2006, when Maxine sold her first book to Harlequin Desire. Maxine
currently lives in Melbourne, Australia.
