Biography:

Jennifer Blake has been called the Steel Magnolia of women's fiction, and a "legend of the romance genre." She is a seventh generation Louisianian who married at 15, began writing at 21, sold her first book at 27, and gained New York Times Best Seller status more than 20 years ago. An international best seller as well, she has been published in 18 languages with worldwide sales approaching 30 million. She was honored with the position as Writer-in-Residence for the University of Northeastern Louisiana, and is a charter, and honorary, member of Romance Writers of America.

Numerous awards for her work have been gained over the years. Among those she values most, however, are the Golden Treasure Award for Lifetime Achievement from Romance Writers of America, induction into both the RWA and Affaire de Coeur Romance Halls of Fame, and the Frank Waters Award for Excellence in Fiction.

Since 1998, Jennifer and her husband have resided in a lakeside Caribbean-styled retreat in North Louisiana where they often entertain friends and family. Always a gardener, she spends much of her free time encouraging her newly planted garden to bloom with her favorite daylilies and antique roses. When not gardening, she enjoys collecting antiques, painting, and needlework, including quilting.

Still, evenings find her and her husband lounging on one of the expansive verandas, sipping café au lait or a cool drink and listening to the gentle lap of waves. Here, as Jennifer says in her own words, "I write my fantasies of love and adventure in the romantic South. And sometimes, when I sit on the porch with the sunlight falling across the lawn and the smells of magnolia, sweet olive, honeysuckle and roses wafting on the warm air, I live them."
