Welcome!

Hello! Thanks for stopping by. I'm Maddie James, a self-professed hopeful romantic - which is definitely why there is romance in most everything I write. Nothing better than a juicy love story, don't you think? 

I write short stories, novellas, and full-blown novels, mostly in western/cowboy, suspense, and paranormal romance genres.

As Sophie Jacobs, I write sweet/sweeter contemporary romance and women's fiction.

You can find out more about me by visiting my official bios here and a FAQ at this link.

I'm also an occasional rescuer of things that need rescuing, like a shelter puppy or maybe an abandoned antique wicker table. I'm a Food Network junkie, blogger, writer, artist, decorator/repurposer, cook, and former book publisher and educator.
