Petie spent a large part of her career working at Walt Disney World -- "The Most Magical Place on Earth" -- where she enjoyed working in the land of fairy tales by day and creating her own romantic fairy tales by night, including her new series, The Cinderella Romances. She eventually said good-bye to her "day" job to write her stories full-time.

These days Petie also spends her time writing sequels to her regency time travel series, Lords in Time, and her cozy-mystery-with-a-dash-of-romantic-suspense series, the Mystery Angel Romances.

Petie shares her home on the Cumberland Plateau in Tennessee with her horticulturist husband and an opinionated Nanday conure named Sassy who made a cameo appearance in No Angels for Christmas.

A few scenes with him have already blown through my imagination. When the whole movie arrives, he'll be the next book. Thanks for asking, and I'll keep you posted!(less)

I only get "climax block." Don't laugh. It's real. When it's time to write the climactic scene at the finale, I always have a tough time getting it on the page. It's happened with each book. I know what must happen in the scene, but getting it on paper is a different matter. Sometimes it takes a week or more to get it down.(less)

As usual, the London book was very well-written and kept my interest throughout, however I could not like the heroine. Found her selfish and spoiled attitude at times to be close to insufferable.
