Neely Powell is the pseudonym for co-writers Leigh Neely and Jan Hamilton Powell. The best friends met when they both worked at a rock 'n roll radio station in Chattanooga. It turned out their husbands were long-lost high school buddies, and Jan and Leigh were both writing romantic fiction in their spare time. A partnership was born.

They tried writing fiction together for several years, but life and other adventures got in the way. Their friendship endured as they went on to individual careers. Writing as Celeste Hamilton, Jan published 24 romance novels for Silhouette and Avon Books. Her books appeared on the B. Dalton, Waldenbooks Romance, and USA Today bestseller lists before she left fiction for a career in corporate communications.

Right now, we're both excited to see "Midnight, Texas" on TV. I think we would enjoy a visit there, meeting all the fascinating residents and talking with them. We both love Patricia Briggs two series about werewolves--Mercy Thompson and Alpha and Omega. We'd love to go to Aspen Creek and talk to Bran and Charles and meet Anna. I don't think we'd be very nice to Bran's mate because she's so mean to Mercy. The relationship between Anna and Charles is so special. We'd also like to go to a meeting of the Columbia Basin Pack with Adam and Mercy. Among our favorite pack members are Warren, Ben, Honey...oh, heck, all of them. I guess the places we'd go would depend more on the people we'd meet there. Jan and I would love to travel to the wonderful world in Game of Thrones. Dragons fascinate us and someday we're going to write our own dragon story, but we're thinking of making him an urban creature, gliding through the night sky above all the artificial lighting.(less)

ThumbnailWAIn the South, winding mountain roads still lead to small towns. There, everyone knows their neighbors’ business, but secrets slumber in the shadows. The past is as real as the present. And family still means everything.


Through our heritage, we know places like this. So when this story began to grow, we created New Mourne, a town tucked high in the mountains of North Georgia. We filled it with...
