Before eloping to Las Vegas with a hot, dark, and dangerous stranger, Fiona Vance was an office manager, a cocktail waitress, a guitarist for an all-girl punk band, a model, a lingerie home-party sales rep, and a web developer.  While some feats were more successful than others, all were accomplished without a net or any significant amount of medication (although she did once have a German shepherd on Zoloft).  Someday, when she has time for hobbies, she’ll have a horse, a vegetable garden, a clean house, and will win back that thirty bucks she lost in the quarter slots at Excalibur.

Originally from Rhode Island, she currently resides in Southern Oregon with her author-husband, an offspring or four, and a feisty calico cat named Snowy (who’s not currently a compulsive gambler or on any prescription medication). Her romantic suspense novel, Midnight Guardian, was a finalist in the 2008 RWA Golden Rose contest, and her first release, Submission, is a Red Rose Publishing #1 Bestseller.
