Jan Schliesman became addicted to Harlequin Super Romances in high school, often swapping bags of books with her girlfriends. Shortly afterwards, Mr. Wonderful walked into her life and it was love at first sight. At least for her. It took a few months for him to realize that she was mowing the grass in tight spandex to get him to notice her.
They married and started a family and she became a stay-at-home mom. Not as much time to read meant Harlequin Desires were her new best friend, especially when they started including wine glasses in the monthly shipment. After their son was diagnosed with autism, it was also vitally important that somebody, somewhere, was getting a happy ending.
She returned to college in pursuit of an English degree, but working as a police dispatcher provided too many story ideas. Romantic Suspense became her new love, and a degree in Criminal Justice followed many years later.
Most days you’ll find her in her office, getting new words on the page. Born and raised in Iowa, she’s the mother of three semi-grown children. She lives in Kansas with the man she still calls Mr. Wonderful. Find her on Facebook, follow her on Twitter or check out her website at www.janschliesman.com.
