Carolyn Hector was on the path to becoming a writer at a young age when she wrote scripts for her Barbie dolls and passed them out to her friends to study for future play dates. She wrote her own version of Streets of Fire after she couldn’t get enough of the characters and did so by changing things around to match her middle school world. Spoiler alert, “Tommy and Helen” end up together in her version. It wasn’t until she watched Romancing the Stone that she finally knew what she wanted to be when she grew up–a Romance Writer!
Best believe if her headphones are on, she’s listening to everything and anything from the ‘80s. If she’s not writing, you can find her in the bleachers at a football/soccer/track/basketball/wrestling match or game and if all else fails, check the PTO committees. She currently lives in Tallahassee, Florida gathering plot bunnies in her grown-up world of high school dramas, college sports, politics, and plenty of Southern heat.
She is best known for her Once Upon a Tiara series set around life after pageants for beauty queens. Carolyn also enjoys writing romantic suspense and contemporary Christmas themed books. She was an active member of the Florida Panhandle Romance Writers of America which disbanded a few years ago, but she’d be in remiss if she didn’t mention the twice a year writing retreats with the group members. Carolyn is a member of TAN (Tallahassee Authors Network) and RWA.

Suzette D. Harrison, a native Californian and the middle of three daughters, grew up in a home where reading was required, not requested. Her literary “career” began in junior high school with the publishing of her poetry. While Mrs. Harrison pays homage to Alex Haley, Gloria Naylor, Alice Walker, Langston Hughes, and Toni Morrison as literary legends who inspired her creativity, it was Dr. Maya Angelou’s I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings that unleashed her writing. Literally. Not only is Harrison a multi-award-winning author, but she is an avid reader as well. “I’ve strayed away from the practice, but years ago I made a concerted effort to always read a book from the Harlem Renaissance writers every time I read a contemporary piece of fiction. It was my way of reaching back and balancing my literary indulgences.” Indulging her literary sweet tooth with works from her favorite authors, Dianne McKinney Whetstone, Bernice McFadden, J.D. Mason, and Guy Johnson to name a few, Harrison is quick to proclaim McFadden’s Sugar as her all-time, absolute favorite novel. In addition to writing, Suzette’s career has afforded her opportunities to share her gifts through public speaking, as well as author-mentoring. A wife and mother who holds a culinary degree in Pastry & Baking, Suzette is currently cooking up her next novel…in between batches of cookies.
Born and raised in the Nation’s Capital, Washington, DC, Kimmie Ferrell has enjoyed reading romance novels since the age of thirteen when she was gifted an enormous box of Harlequin and Silhouette novels from her unsuspecting mother. Her passion for reading grew after discovering BET Arabesque novels at her local library. But it wasn’t until high school when Kimmie tried (and failed) to write her very first story. However, her love of writing would not be deterred, and in 2015, she was a Top Ten finalist for Harlequin’s So You Think You Can Write contest.
Kimmie crafts sensual and sweet contemporary romance stories featuring relatable characters dealing with real-world scenarios in the pursuit for the often-thought-as-elusive happily ever after.
When she isn’t writing or plotting her next idea, Kimmie can be found in the kitchen preparing meals as if she were a chef on Chopped, reading, watching Hallmark movies saved on her DVR with her Domestic short-haired cat, Allegro, or out-and-about with her family.
Kimmie is a member of the Romance Writers of America (RWA) as well as the Cultural, Interracial, and Multicultural Special Interest Chapter of Romance Writers of America (CIMRWA).
