The second of five
children, Shirlee McCoy spent
her childhood making up stories and acting them out with her sisters. Together
with their menagerie of stuffed animals, they overpowered bad guys, righted
wrongs, and made the world a better place. When she wasn’t engaged in
imaginative play, she lost myself in the lives and adventures of Nancy Drew,
The Hardy Boys, and Trixie Belden. It wasn’t long before she discovered
her mother’s gothic romances and became an ardent fan of romantic suspense.
Today she's a busy mom of
five. When she's not homeschooling her children or trying to keep up with
endless piles of laundry, she still enjoys losing herself in a good book. And
she still loves making up stories. Armed with a laptop, ten fingers, and her
God‑given imagination, she overpowers bad guys, rights wrongs, and makes the
world a better place for her characters.
