About the Author: Vanessa Grant

"I love writing fiction - it's the perfect occupation for someone who can't decide what they want to be when they grow up. With each new story, I get to explore a new world."

Vanessa Grant's love affair with writing fiction began during a protracted illness at the age of 12 when she decided to write a novel of her own, sitting up in bed using the typewriter she'd been given for her birthday. Not a computer, not an electric typewriter, but a then-state-of-the-art manual typewriter. The story ground to a halt on page 50 but Vanessa never forgot the excitement of bringing her own characters to life.

In 1985 Vanessa's novel Pacific Disturbance was published in hardcover by Mills and Boon. She now has over 10 million books sold and has been translated into 15 languages. She also has written what one critic described as, "by far the best writing book I've ever read." Writing Romance, published by Self Counsel Press, won the Under the Covers Best Writing Book Award, and is currently in its third edition.

Over the years her love of storytelling and curiosity about people led Vanessa to study psychology, volunteer on a crisis line, complete individual and relationship counselor training, volunteer as a peer counselor for a family life organization, and tell stories about life, love, and secrets. Vanessa is also a university professor, a publisher of educational materials and eBooks, and has given workshops to writers' groups in Australia, New Zealand, the USA and Canada.

Vanessa and her husband live on Vancouver Island in the Pacific Northwest with their two Australian Shepherd dogs.

The Vanessa Grant romance that started it all, back by popular demand.

The year is 1985 and Lucy is a modern woman who believes one unhappy marriage is enough for a lifetime. No matter how much she loves working with Max McGraw, there's no way she's going to let herself fall "in love" with him.

But Max is dangerously irresistible, so when Lucy realizes how vulnerable she is, she flees, building a new life for herself on Canada's remote northwest coast.

But a determined man in love can be very resourceful...

Back by popular demand, Vanessa Grant's first traditional romance, originally published in 1985, a quieter time when most people had never seen a computer and before the worldwide Web was invented.
