Hi. I'm Maddie James, and I am a hopeful romantic (as Joan Wilder would say!)--which is definitely why there is romance in most everything I write. My works range from short stories to full-blown novels, written in a number of romance sub-genres--contemporary, western, suspense, paranormal, and more.

I'm also an occasional rescuer of things that need rescuing, like a homeless kitten, a shelter puppy, or an abandoned antique wicker table. I'm a Food Network junkie, blogger, writer, artist, decorator/repurposer, cook, and former book publisher and educator. I work at home. I love working at home. After years of working the 9-to-5 for someone else, I cannot imagine living my life any other way.

Thanks for visiting my website. See the links in the right side-bar for book descriptions and excerpts. I have recently enabled the comments section of these pages, so feel free to leave a comment or ask a question at the bottom of each book page, if you like. (or perhaps leave your personal review!) I'd love your honest feedback about books of mine you have read.

The tabs across the top will help you navigate to other areas of my site. Be sure to check out the information about book clubs, my street team, and my share-a-book program. 

Have fun and...
