Cover Girl Experience

Sometimes life brings you wonderful surprises…like this one I experienced last Friday, just as I went into the writing cave to work on a looming deadline.

In January, I was contacted by an editor with Suburban Life Magazine in DuPage County outside of Chicago to see if I’d be interested in doing an interview. They had heard about the “Romance Writing” class I teach through ed2go, but were happy to find out that  my MATCHED TO PERFECTION series is set in and around Chicago. I spoke with a friendly journalist for about 45 minutes a few days later and was looking forward to a small article on the inside of the magazine (my assumption as I later realized that I didn’t specifically ask where the article would go).

Flash forward to last week when the magazine tagged me in a social media post and….WOW! I’m on the cover!

The journalist did a fabulous job with the article and I love that the tone was a friendly, professional mix. More importantly, we were able to shine a positive light on romance, especially diverse romance.

Here’s the cover, but check out this link and the one in the magazine’s name above for the full article!
