Award-winning author Claudia Shelton could write her name before the first day of school, but now she writes romantic suspense, contemporary romance and thrillers. In addition, she presents workshops for readers and authors.

Writers put words on the page not just with our minds, but with our emotions and our soul--hopefully we reach others not only with the joy of the story, but with touching others on a personal level. Smiles and have a great day!(less)

Claudia Shelton answered Goodreads's question: Claudia  Shelton
I came up with the series because I wanted to have a romantic suspense series that is basically about good vs. evil. And, of course, I wanted my heroes to be strong and sexy, someone the reader would want to spend time with.
Risk of a Lifetime by Claudia  Shelton
"One of my favorite kinds of book to read is a romantic thriller. Give me a juicy suspenseful mystery that I can't unravel until the very end and I am hooked. Now there has to be a damsel in distress, of course, but definitely not one of those whiny "" Read more of this review »
