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.

Petie shares her home on the Cumberland Plateau in Tennessee with her horticulturist husband, a spoiled-rotten English Springer spaniel addicted to pimento-stuffed green olives, and a noisy Nanday conure name

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.

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)

Scent of a Duke was a heartwarming regency love story like one you'd expect from Disney. Just plain sweet! Loved it and read it in one sitting. Five well-deserved stars.

"Ready for Aidan's story!

I suspect this is going to be a trilogy and I'm ready for Aidan's story!

I loved Garrett's story! It wasn't just a romance, but a mystery too, with some nifty twists and turns. The only thing I didn't like was I didn't learn..." Read more of this review »
