After pairing up lawyers romantically in her head for fifteen years, Magdalen Braden traded in her job as an attorney to set her inner matchmaker free. Today she draws on her past adventures in a Philadelphia law office to write her sexy contemporary romance series, The Blackjack Quartet.
Blackjack & Moonlight, the third installment in the series, was a finalist in the prestigious Romance Writers of America® Golden Heart® contest in 2012. All four books contain love, romance, and a solid dose of legal humor.
Magdalen fuels her creativity by attending the University of Southern Maine's Stonecoast MFA program and blogging about the romance genre at Promantica.com. As president of her local Romance Writers of America® chapter, Magdalen gives back to the writing community and helps other authors reach their dreams.
When not writing or studying, she enjoys spending time with her crossword-loving husband, their Rhody-mix dog, and two ever-present cats in the Endless Mountains of Northeast Pennsylvania.
