A graduate of the University of Texas - and, yes, she loves those Longhorns - author Cheryl Bolen enjoyed careers as an award-winning journalist and as a public school English teacher before she turned to writing historical romances. Her first Regency-set book, A Duke Deceived, was published in 1998 and for it she was named Notable New Author. One Golden Ring is her eighth book, and she has also published a novella with Zebra.
Now having exchanged pantyhose for sweats, she's thrilled to write full time. Her other thrills come from her professor hubby, their two sons who claim to be grown, and keeping the needle on her bathroom scale from going up.
