Maria Geraci writes quirky, fun, romantic women's fiction and cozy mysteries. She's a two-time RITA® Finalist, as well as a National Reader's Choice Award and Romantic Times American Title finalist. Her books feature strong women, dreamy heroes, lots of laughs and a little bit of heat. And if it's one of her mysteries, look for a dead body, as well. She lives in central Florida and is always on the lookout for the perfect key lime pie recipe (but not the kind they served on Dexter).

Hi, Kathy!

That's a great question and the answer is absolutely, a book can fall into both categories. Most contemporary romance deals with some women's fiction issues (familial relationships) just like paranormal romance deals with the supernatural or historical romance might deal with a mystery or some sort of intrigue. By definition, a romance delves into the falling of love between 2 people and involves a happily ever after, while women's fiction doesn't need to include a romance at all. Thanks for asking!(less)
Maria Geraci Hi Heike! Thank you so much for asking :) Yes, I will be releasing 3 books this year. I have a novella releasing on April 14 titled HOLD ONTO FOREVER.…moreHi Heike! Thank you so much for asking :) Yes, I will be releasing 3 books this year. I have a novella releasing on April 14 titled HOLD ONTO FOREVER. It is set in another world other than Whispering Bay. Then I have 2 more full length books coming out, 1 set in Whispering Bay, THIS CAN'T BE LOVE, which will release in early summer and another full length book (not Whispering Bay) set for Fall.

Maria Geraci, That Thing You Do

“A man does not recover from such devotion of the heart to such a woman! He ought not; he does not.”
Jane Austen, Persuasion

“The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.”
Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey

“The shower hadn't washed away the hurt, nor had it disguised the tear stains on my face. But I still felt a little better. As better as any vampire could feel after having her BFF drive a stake through her heart.”
Melissa Francis, Bite Me!

“I'm truly living a very Brady nightmare.”
Melissa Francis, Bite Me!

“Had I been wrong about Ryan? Did he beat Noah up and leave him there for me to suck the remaining breath from his unconscious body? Were we like some anti-superhero duo, working together to spread our evil stepsibling karma across the planet?”
Melissa Francis, Bite Me!
