About this author

Shana Galen is the bestselling author of fast-paced adventurous Regency historicals, including the RT Reviewers' Choice The Making of a Gentleman. Booklist says, "Galen expertly entwines espionage-flavored intrigue with sizzling passion," and RT Bookreviews calls her "a grand mistress of the action/adventure subgenre." She taught English at the middle and high school level off and on for eleven years. Most of those years were spent working in Houston's inner city. Now she writes full time. She's happily married and has a daughter who is most definitely a romance heroine in the making. Shana loves to hear from readers, so send her an email or see what she's up to daily on Facebook and Twitter.

I don't think it's so much that a character needs me to change the story. Most of the time, I don't know the character well enough, and as I write I realize something really important about him or her. Then I have to go back and change the story to fit the new information. Most recently, this happened with Will in WHEN YOU GIVE A DUKE A DIAMOND.(less)
