More About the Author
Hi, I'm Ann Macela, and I write enchanting, smart, and sensual contemporary romance and contemporary light paranormal romance. Sometimes with a touch of humor, sometimes with a little sorrow, always with passion and emotion.
My latest books are a two-book contemporary romance series, Wolves in Business. Wolf in Jester's Clothing and Wolf on Thin Ice tell the story of two brothers who find their true loves where they least expect them. Warning: These are NOT shapeshifters, but alpha businessmen. Like the Magic Series, it's best to read them in order.
My award-winning Magic Series is about a group of people who can cast spells to help them with their everyday jobs. Wouldn't you like to have an ability that would help you type faster, make accurate change, fix the plumbing, or grow flowers and vegetables? Or whatever it is that you do? And these people, who call themselves practitioners, are guaranteed to find their soul mates. Ready or not, and whether or not they want one at that particular moment. As the series progresses, the magic gets more complicated and so do the relationships. Included in the series now are the last two stories, never before published.
Windswept won the Romantic Times Reviewers' Choice Award for Best Romance, Small Press, 2008, and several other awards. Writing this standalone contemporary with a historical twist took me back to my first love, the study of history, and it definitely shows off my Texas roots. There's a terrible secret in the papers of the Windswept Plantation . . .
I'm a native Gulf Coast Texan, now living in The Frozen North of Chicagoland. I started life reading mysteries, then sci-fi and fantasy. When I discovered romances, I saw a way to combine all the aspects of books that I liked into my own stories. And what a welcome difference from writing computer manuals--my old job and which has no magic about it at all.
