New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Maisey Yates will discuss her work and writing process on Thursday, June 11. Yates lives in rural Oregon with her three children and her husband, whose chiseled jaw and arresting features continue to make her swoon. In 2009, at the age of twenty-three, Yates sold her first book. Since then, it’s been a whirlwind of sexy alpha males and happily-ever-afters, and she wouldn’t have it any other way. Yates divides her writing time between dark, passionate category romances set just about everywhere on earth and light, sexy contemporary romances set practically in her backyard. She believes that she clearly has the best job in the world.
