Freelance editor and author Anjannette Conner lives in Texas with two of her four children and several adorable cats. She is also the proud "Gramms" of four equally adorable grandchildren. Blessed with a serious love of reading, she fell in love with the historical romance genre many years ago when her grandmother gave her some romance novels to read. When she decided to pursue her lifelong dream of writing, it was an easy decision to focus on the historical romance genre, and Mystery Lady and Defying a Duke are her first efforts. Free time is a rare gift, but when she manages to take time off, she loves spending it in Arkansas with her grandchildren, children, parents, and the grandmother who started it all.
