Author Allie Marie grew up in Virginia. Her favorite childhood pastime was reading Nancy Drew and Trixie Belden mysteries. When she embarked on a new vocation writing fiction after retiring from a career in law enforcement, it would have been understandable if her first book was a crime story. Researching her own family tree inspired her to write the True Colors Series instead. The other stories are patiently waiting their turn.
The first book, TEARDROPS OF THE INNOCENT: The White Diamond Story was released in fall 2015, was nominated for a RITA award and was a New England Romance Writers' finalist.
The second and third books are scheduled for release in winter and spring 2016.
Besides family, her passions are travel and camping with her husband Jack.

Always an avid reader, Diane was introduced to the world of historical romance at the age of fourteen by a favorite aunt. From that day, she determined to create her own world of romance, filled with the British aristocracy and the turbulent Regency Era, during and after the Napoleonic Wars.
When not reading or writing about Dukes, Earls, and their ladies, Diane spends her time making beautiful memories with her husband and children, attending the ballet, or watching movies (love stories, of course!).
Diane hopes you will enjoy her debut novella, The Rake's Redemption, a story of a love interrupted, and the enduring hope that brings two hearts together. Her next release will be a Christmas novella, followed by a full length novel early next year.
You can learn more about her characters and the places where her stories take place by checking out her boards on Pinterest!

Trish McCallan was born in Eugene, Oregon, and grew up in Washington State, where she began crafting stories at an early age. Her first books were illustrated in crayon, bound with red yarn, and sold for a nickel at her lemonade stand.

Lane is a best-selling author of historical romance. Her current series, THE DAUGHTERS OF ALASTAIR MACDOUGALL, is set in late thirteenth century Scotland. She has recently released the final book of the series, ELSBETH.
She loves history and has planned books spanning the early Middle Ages through the American Civil War. While her books are fiction, each one is based around historical facts, and you will often see known figures such as William Wallace, Robert the Bruce, or The Red Comyn make guest appearances. All her books revolve around human struggles, sacrifices survivors are forced to make, and their resilience to live and thrive.
During the day, Lane works as an accountant selling financial software, but her nights are devoted to writing of spirited heroines, to-die-for-heroes, and the romantic love stories between them.
Lane is a southern girl living on top of a mountain in North Georgia, and is most happy when surrounded by family and friends. If she’s not writing, you can find her hiking with her husband, or fiddling around in her flower and vegetable gardens, feeding the birds and watching black bears and deer.
