Hello everyone and thank you so much to Shari for having me today! This has been a crazy month for me. After all, my 60 th published novel, An Affair in Winter (Seasons 1) came out on July 12. It’s crazy for me to write that, but it’s true.

I always wanted to write, in fact I always did write, but I never truly believed I could make it a career. Even when my husband got a job at a major software company in 1999 and he told me to follow my dream and start writing full time, I never truly thought it could work. But somehow, after 4 years, I sold my first novella and a year later, I contracted 2 books with a large publisher and so began my real writing career.

I’ve published with small presses, huge publishers and now I’m 100% indie. I’ve written a few urban fantasies (under my Jesse Petersen name), some historical romance (Jenna Petersen) but the bulk of my books, about 60%, have been erotic historical romance written as Jess Michaels. I love writing these books, I never feel a shortage of ideas and I actually get to support my family 100% writing them (my husband retired at 35 to come work for ME since the career was going so well).

It’s been a wild ride of ups and downs, triumphs and disappointments, but there’s one thing that remains the same. I love writing! And I can’t wait to see what the NEXT 60 books bring me!

Widow Rosalinde Wilde is on her way to her beloved sister’s wedding when an unexpected storm waylays her at an overcrowded inn. There she meets a tempting stranger who sweeps her into a night of unforgettable passion.

Grayson Danford never expected a night with the irresistible Mrs. Wilde, but she was a welcome distraction from the unpleasant duty of breaking up his brother’s impending nuptials.  He’s shocked when he discovers his passionate lover is none other than the sister of his brother’s intended.

Now Rosalinde and Gray will butt heads, even as their simmering desire for each other threatens to boil over. Who will win? And who might lose it all?

Amazing! Congrats on 60 books published and going indie and congrats to your hubby for getting to retire and be a partner with you. I’ve enjoyed several of your books and this one looks pretty good, too.
