As an unabashed lover of all things happily-ever-after, Shaila Patel's younger self would finish reading her copy of Cinderella and fling it across the room because it didn't mention what happened next. Now she writes from her home in the Carolinas and dreams up all sorts of stories with epilogues. A member of the Romance Writers of America, she's a pharmacist by training, a medical office manager by day, and a writer by night.
Her debut, SOULMATED, won the 2015 Chanticleer Book Reviews' Paranormal Awards for Young Adults, and is part of her Joining of Souls Series. Book 2, FIGHTING FATE, is out now.
Shaila loves traveling, craft beer, tea, and reading a good book in a cozy window seat—but she'll read anywhere. You might even find her sneaking in a few paragraphs at a red light, or connecting with other readers online.
