More About the Author
Best-selling, award-winning author Gina Wilkins sold her first novel to Harlequin in 1987 and has been writing full-time since. Her 100th Harlequin book, HUSBAND FOR A WEEKEND, will be published by Harlequin Special Edition in April, 2012, coinciding with the thirtieth anniversary of the Special Edition line. She has recently penned her first psychological suspense novel, WAKE ME, a Kindle exclusive release.
Whether through drama, humor or suspense, she says her underlying theme in her storytelling has always been "the universally-identifiable search for a safe place to call home." She is a four-time winner of the respected Maggie Award for Excellence sponsored by Georgia Romance Writers and was nominated for a Lifetime Achievement Award by the reviewers of Romantic Times magazine.
A lifelong resident of central Arkansas, she earned a Bachelor of Science in Journalism from Arkansas State University and worked in advertising and multi-media employee training before launching her writing career. A past president of Fiction Writers of Central Arkansas, she is a member of Romance Writers of America, Diamond State Romance Authors, and Novelists, Inc. She has been married for more than thirty years to her husband, John, with whom she raised two daughters and a son, all pursuing careers in science and medicine.
