Tasha Taylor

Tasha Taylor is a UK based author, writing contemporary romance and is also a fiction addict. It is not unusual to find a book open in her home – next to the bath, next to the bed, in the office, on the stairs and then there’s the e-reader, smart phone and laptop. She is also mother to her son and future ex-wife to her partner. Other duties include cat lover and dog washer. 
Tasha started writing at 15, creating her own little world where everybody went to boarding school and found true love in their teens. She’s moved on grown-up romance since then. No love is ever without its difficulties, but it’s the strength of that love that sees us through the good, the bad and the mornings when mascara alone just won’t cut it. Tasha also has an addiction to social media.

Monica Garry-Allen

About Monica
Hi, my name is Monica Garry-Allen. I’m a writer and lover of all things romantic. I reside in southern Mississippi with my husband. When I’m not listening to the characters in my head and jotting down their adventures, I am busy working as a Clinical Laboratory Technician. I love to travel, preferably with my husband, so he can do all of the driving. I enjoy time with my family, who are just as silly as I am. I have no children…yet, wish me luck! My hobbies are reading, writing and shopping, though I hate trying on clothing. If I wasn’t a writer or a Laboratory Professional, I would probably be a Secret Agent. But that’s the beauty of being a writer; you can create your own world and be whoever you want to be. In my imaginary world, I am the Queen and my siblings are my minions. 

The Makeover 
Her mission, if she chose to accept it, was simple. All April has to do is attend a last minute dinner party with her boss and in return he will allow her to have the weekend off to attend a Star Wars Costume Party. She’s excited, but her excitement turns to disappointment when she learns that her boss only invited her to the dinner because he needed an ‘average date’…someone plain, who wouldn’t steal the spotlight from him. Hurt and upset, April, with the help of her friends, plan to show Dr. Stewart that she may be a nerd girl, but she’s far from plain.
Dr. Stewart needs a date and fast, but he doesn’t want a date who will outshine him in front of his colleagues. He thought his secretary would be the perfect date, until he arrived to find her looking like his wildest fantasy. Can he convince her to forgive him for hurting her or will she walk out of his life…taking his heart with her?

Sophia Diana Gabel

Born in Sydney, Australia, Ms. Gabel now lives in the United States with her family and hairless Sphynx cats.
She has dabbled in several careers, including archaeology and wildlife biology, but writing is her true passion.

Janelle Lee

Janelle, as many writers do, believes she was born with ink in her veins. Fortunately she has had some success as a writer but she is a firm believer that you can only get out of writing what you are willing to put into it.
Writing found Janelle when she was in Year 2, and the best story ever written was beaten out by a boy who received the creative writing award. She is still bitter about that although she did manage to relieve him of all his marbles at lunchtime, so all was not lost.
