Bestselling romance author, Maddie James, trips from contemporary to paranormal worlds as she pens stories within, and frequently crossing, a variety of romantic sub-genres. Her stories generally fall within the lines of traditional romance, whether they are sweet or spicy, and her heroes/heroines are always chasing the happily-ever-after.
She's a Food Network junkie, a wannabe gardener, and a closet hermit. She frequently rescues stray pets and plants and an occasional antique wicker table. All of these quirky topics, and more, make their way into her books.
Her first book, THE WILD WEST, a Kensington Precious Gems romance written under a pseudonym, received a Calico Trails Cameo Award. RED: A SEDUCTION TALE, claimed first place as the Romance Book Scene's favorite novella of the year. A three time nominee for a CAPA Award from The Romance Studio, and one time nominee for a Psyche Award, Maddie has also received a number of Top Pick and Best Read reviews from various reviewers. Several of her books have landed on Amazon Top 100 Paid Best Seller lists, including BROKEN, a #1 best seller in western romance, and CRAZY FOR YOU, which reached #8 in contemporary romance.
Maddie is a member of Romance Writers of America (RWA) and its Published Author Network (PAN), Novelists, Inc., and the Independent Book Publisher's Association.
