Mallory Kane has two very good reasons for loving reading and writing. Her mother was a librarian, who taught her to love and respect books. Her father could hold listeners spellbound for hours with his stories, including of World War II. His WWII stories are memorialized in the Library of Congress. He was always her biggest fan. With a Golden Heart nomination in the far distant past and several more recent awards, including a Booklover’s Best Award, Mallory is amazed and grateful that she gets to make up stories for a living. She has published more than 40 novels for Harlequin Intrigue, Tule Publishing and her independent projects. Mallory’s latest novel is a sweet contemporary for Tule Publishing, The Secret Christmas, written with fellow author Deborah Cox. It just might be her current favorite of her novels. Mallory lives in Tennessee with her Renaissance Man and two Renaissance cats.
