Cheryl Bolen is the New York Times and USA Today best-selling author of more than three dozen romances. She's also an Amazon All Star author. She's written for Harlequin Historical, Kensington Books, Montlake, and Love Inspired Historical, and has published independently through her Harper & Appleton imprint. Many of her books have placed in contests, including the Daphne du Maurier (romantic suspense) and have been translated into nine languages. She was Notable New Author in 1999. In 2006 she won the Holt Medallion, Best Historical, and in 2012 she won Best Historical in the International Digital Awards, a competition in which she's had five other titles become finalists in Best Historical categories. Her 2011 Christmas novella was named Best Novella in the Romance Through the Ages contest.

A former journalist and teacher, Bolen adores reading about dead Englishwomen. She is married to the retired professor who captured her teenage heart when they were undergraduates. Their favorite pastimes include watching college sports and traveling, especially to England-often accompanied by their grown sons.
