From the Author

I would like to give a thanks to the authors in the Christmas Pets and Kisses box set led by Rachelle Ayala. Her suggestion in 2015 to create a set of novellas featuring a pet and the holidays gave me the opportunity to write about my cat Minty, named by my then five-year-old daughter when he found us way back in 1987. Minty was loyal and loving and a part of our family for eighteen years. It was an honor to be able to write this story as a tribute and love note to him.

Not only did that box set give me the opportunity to write about the Smoky Mountains where my husband and I had recently bought a cabin, but it also brought me Amazon "bestseller" status when the box set was released right before Christmas 2015. I soon began the second story,
Misty Mountain, as had happened with my first series, Behind the Love, I'd fallen in love with the characters and community I'd created. I hope you'll enjoy getting to know the fictional town of Laurel, North Carolina, and come to love all of its people as I did.

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

P.C. Zick describes herself as a storyteller no matter what she writes. And she writes in a variety of genres, including romance, contemporary fiction, and creative nonfiction. She's won various awards for her essays, columns, editorials, articles, and novels.

The three novels in her Florida Fiction Series contain stories of Florida and its people and environment, which she credits as giving her a rich base for her storytelling. She says, "Florida's quirky and abundant wildlife—both human and animal—supply my fiction with tales almost too weird to be believable."

P.C. writes both sweet and steamy romances. The sweet contemporary romances in her Smoky Mountain Romances, are set in southwest North Carolina. Another sweet romance series, Rivals in Love, contains seven stories about finding and keeping love alive. The novels follow the Crandall family of Chicago as the siblings find love despite their focus on successful careers.

Her steamy romances go from Florida to Long Island. The Behind the Love series, set in a small fictional town in Florida, feature a community of people who form bonds as they learn to overcome the challenges of their youth. Her Montauk Romances are set in and around Long Island and feature simple, yet sophisticated beach houses designed with romance in mind. The two books in this set are filled with steamy scenes as love grows and thrives.

Zick offers a variety of nonfiction books, which include a book on vegetable gardening, a compilation of her essays and short stories from her decades-long career as a writer, and a primer for writers on taking an idea and turning it into a published book. She has also published and annotated the journal of her great-grandfather based on his experiences as a Union soldier during the Civil War.

Her novels contain elements of romance with strong female characters, handsome heroes, and descriptive settings. And all of her works express her philosophy of living lightly upon this earth with love, laughter, and passion.

She and her husband split their time between Tallahassee, Florida, and the Smoky Mountains where they enjoy gardening, kayaking, golfing, and hiking.
