JL Wharton is a technical writer turned romance novelist. Writing novels didn’t seem to be in her wheelhouse until she realized that she has a few life experiences to share. These experiences have woven themselves into the lives of her fun, dedicated, socially and environmentally conscious, make-believe characters who also happen to be humans who fall in love - even when it’s not convenient or planned. After many false starts, her first book, In Deep, was born. Endangered Species will be the second book in the Mother Earth Series and two other books are in process for her upcoming Romance at Sea Series. When not hammering away at her computer keyboard, this author explores the Rocky Mountains of Colorado on foot in her efforts to identify the birds and flowers of this richly diverse ecoregion.
