Cheryl Phipps is a USA Today best-selling romance author from beautiful Auckland, New Zealand.
As a young mother with three small children, Cheryl escaped the daily chaos of motherhood through her beloved romance novels. She loved being whisked away from nappies and wiping noses to exotic locations filled with suave heroes and feisty heroines, and wonderful small towns with heart-warming tales of strong family ties and life-affirming true love.
Her bookshelves still hold those favorite authors - Nora Roberts, Marian Keyes, and Cathy Kelly - plus new-found favorites like Marie Force and Bella Andre, who write stories that echo Cheryl's own values: family always comes first and life's struggles and challenges are always surmountable through love.
Cheryl's three children have now grown up and have families of their own, leaving her free to pursue her dreams of writing novels. She lives in a quiet suburb with her wonderful husband, whom she married the moment she left school (yes, they were high school sweethearts). She enjoys taking walks with her husband, dinner out with friends, and, of course, weaving sensual stories that celebrate the joy of love, family, and resilience.
You'll find her Billionaire Knights, Family Ties, Prossers Bay, High Seas Weddings, and Sycamore Springs series, plus some freebies, at www.cherylphipps.com
She also writes cozy mysteries as C.A. Phipps and you can find these at http://www.caphipps.com.
