About the author

Rhoda Baxter

<p>Rhoda writes contemporary&nbsp;women&rsquo;s fiction with a hint of geek.</p><p>Back in the early 2000s,&nbsp;when she commuted into London every day, Rhoda read romance novels and wished there were more stories about women who were not obsessed with shoes.&nbsp;Besides which, where were all the nice men -&nbsp;the sort that rely on&nbsp;wit and charm rather than money and biceps?</p><p>Rhoda now writes the sort of books she&nbsp;wanted to read. She&#39;s&nbsp;lucky enough to have several books published by a traditional publisher (thank you&nbsp;Choc Lit!). Her books have been nominated for prizes and her articles have appeared on various websites, including USA Today.</p><p>In real life, she has&nbsp;a DPhil in microbiolgy, so if her pen name sounds vaguely bacterial, you can guess why.</p><p>You can find her wittering on about cake and science or making bad puns on her website (www.rhodabaxter.com), or on Facebook or Twitter (@rhodabaxter). Or, if you like, you can email her at rhodab@rhodabaxter.com. Please do say hello if you&rsquo;re passing.</p>
