About this author

Award-winning novelist Keli Gwyn is a California native who lives in a Gold Rush-era town at the foot of the majestic Sierra Nevada Mountains. Her stories transport readers to the 1800s, where she brings historic towns to life, peoples them with colorful characters and adds a hint of humor.

Keli enjoys taking walks on her local hiking trail, working out at Curves and writing letters the old-fashioned way, with pen and paper. One of her favorite hobbies is avoiding housework so she can write, as her collection of dust bunnies will attest.

Keli is currently under contract with Harlequin's Love Inspired Historical line of sweet, faith-filled romances.

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I opened the pages of Irish Meadows. I’d gathered from the back cover that the story would probably be about two sisters, and I was right. I got to enjoy not one, but two romances. What I didn’t know was what differe ...more
