C. J. Archer feels lucky to have been able to combine two lifelong loves, history and books, into the crafting of her three historical romances set in Elizabethan England. They include Kiss of Ash, Her Secret Desire, and Honor Bound,the 2008 winner of the Romance Writers of Australia Emerald Award. Under the pen name of Carolyn Scott, she has published contemporary short stories in women’s magazines on two continents, including Take A Break, Woman’s Day, and That’s Life.
While she’s always been a novelist at heart and to her core, at different times in her career she’s assumed the roles of librarian, IT support person, and technical writer. Born in Darwin in Australia’s Northern Territory, Archer grew up in a mining town in Queensland, steeped in the dramatic beauty of the Outback. She now lives in Melbourne, Victoria, with her husband and two children, and when not working on her next novel, she enjoys reading and gardening.
C.J. is on Twitter, Facebook and Goodreads and loves to hear from her fans. [downloaded from Amazon, 1/11/2013.]
