Valerie Clarizio is a USA Today Bestselling author who lives in romantic Door County Wisconsin with her husband and extremely spoiled cat. She loves to read, write, and spend time at her cabin in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

She’s lived her life surrounded by men, three brothers, a husband, and a male Siamese cat who required his own instruction manual. Keeping up with all the men in her life has turned her into an outdoors enthusiast, of which her favorite activity is hiking in national parks. While out on the trails, she has plenty of time to conjure up irresistible characters and unique storylines for her next romantic suspense or sweet contemporary romance novel.

Valerie J. Clarizio is currently not accepting new questions.

 What have I been up to in general?

This month our adventures took Rick and me to Kitch-iti-Kipi (The Big Spring) near the City of Manistique, Michigan.  The spring is 45 feet deep and full of bait-fish and large Brook, Brown, and Lake Trout. The spring flows at over 10,000 gallons per minute and sustains a 45-degree temperature all year.
