H.M. Shander is a USA TODAY bestselling author, and a hopeless romantic and lover of chocolate, coconut and a damn good cup of coffee. She is the author of The Courting of Charlotte Cooper duology, the award nominated Aurora MacIntyre Trilogy, the tantalizing The Ladies of Westside series and the bestselling series Accidentally in Love. She writes swoon-worthy, gentle beta heroes, in sweet or steamy storylines that all end with a happily ever after.

When not writing, she is a part-time librarian content to drive her children to the curling rink, the soccer pitch or any activity the kids are excited to be a part of. Happily married for twenty plus years, she believes she's married the sweetest man and the greatest inspiration for her heroes.

I'd love that mystery to be solved. #parentingproblems
But on a serious note, hmm, there's no mysterious happenings in my life. I'm not that exciting. ;) However, I could make up something. How about...

The nosy neighbour who butts into everyone's personal lives and gossips like crazy has just been discovered dead. As each neighbour gets questioned, suspicions rise and the police go from having zero suspects to having a block full. Who did it? Better yet, do any of the neighbours really care? (less)

If you are talking about my favourite fictional couple from all the books I've read, then I'd have to say Hazel and Augustus. I love that story, I love the feelings it brought out of me and I love the way the characters interacted with each other and the outside world.

Now, if you're asking me to choose between the fictional characters I've written, that's like asking me to choose which of my children is my favourite. ;)

Charlotte & Andrew are so vastly different from Aurora & Nate. Each has a different outlook on life, which affects the world around them. They each bring something real and magical to the table, so to speak, and like children, they each drive me crazy at times. But I love them all.
