Cleo Scornavacca is an author of Adult Romance, a wife, a mom & a true "Jersey Girl". She was born and raised in NJ and still resides in the Garden State.
In 2012, Cleo began writing Miss Taken, her debut novel and book one in the Miss Taken Identity Series. Identity, book two, was published in 2014 and The Ties That Bind followed in 2016, which completed the series. In addition, Cleo is currently working on several other titles. Two of which are Within Six Months, one of four standalones in her new Wild Roses Series, which will feature the secondary characters from Miss Taken Identity and The House On Leighton Avenue, which is an adult romance with a haunting twist; an unusual departure from her other books.
Cleo was honored to be a part of two anthologies. This Beautiful Escape, Volume One, contains her personal short story called Small Gestures. All of the proceeds to This Beautiful Escape go to the fund for Ataxia Awareness. The second anthology, yet to be released; is for Project Semi-Colon. Cleo’s story is called A Letter to My Younger Self.
Cleo is a contributing columnist in Lust Bites Magazine and a proud member of Romance Writers of America (RWA) and the New Jersey Romance Writers (NJRW) organizations. When she isn’t writing, she’s spending time with her family, friends and her Dobie, Brayden. Cleo enjoys reading all types romance, books on Italy, listening to 80's metal bands, watching movies from Hollywood's Golden Age and of course, squishing her feet in the sand down at the Jersey Shore every chances she gets.
