Colette Dixon is a two-time Golden Heart Award® Finalist who writes sexy, heart-mending love stories about smart, slightly tortured heroines and soft-on-the-inside heroes who learn how love can heal. For more years than she cares to admit, she worked in a hospital while dreaming up love story plots. A farm girl who landed in Chicago after stints in Los Angeles and Shanghai, she loves to eat (food made by others), drink tea, and sun herself at every chance she can get to survive the Midwest winter.
