Hi everyone! My characters are a lot more interesting than I am. I grew up on a farm in Ohio, raised horses, read books, and dreamed about stories I'd someday write.
I currently live with my husband and family in a rural area of West Virginia (we're talking wild turkey, bear, and deer country) where I catch the muse and write PG13 romance in my Unlikely Gentlemen series and heat-stroke hot erotica for Ellora's Cave in my Eclipse Heat books. My first title, Intimate Strangers, published in 2009, won the 2010 EPIC Award in two categories: Best Western Romance and Best Erotic Western.
Although I have hermit tendencies, I love hearing from fans. For updates (or if you're an avid Words With Friends junkie)visit my Face Book Author Page@ facebook.com/GemSivadAuthor; Website: gemsivad.com; and Subscribe to my newsletter: gemsivad.com/dreamcatcher.
