Jan Scarbrough

Biography

Whether it is the Bluegrass of Kentucky, the mountains of Montana, or Medieval England, Jan Scarbrough brings you home with romances from the heart.

Jan is the author of two popular series set in the Bluegrass, writing heartwarming contemporary romances about home and family, single moms and children, and if the plot allows, about another passion— horses. Living in the horse country of Kentucky makes it easy for Jan to add small town, Southern charm to her books and the excitement of a Bluegrass horse race or a competitive horse show.

Leaving her contemporary voice behind, Jan has written paranormal gothic romances: Tangled Memories, a Romance Writers of America (RWA) Golden Heart finalist, and Timeless. Her medieval romance, My Lord Raven is a story of honor and betrayal.
A member of Novelist, Inc., Jan has published with Kensington, Five Star, ImaJinn Books, Resplendence Publishing and Turquoise Morning Press. Today she self-publishes her books with the help of her husband. She has published 23 romances.

Jan lives in Louisville, Kentucky, with two rescued dogs, one rescued cat, and a husband she rescued eighteen years ago. When she isn't writing, she loves to ride American Saddlebred horses, drive grandchildren to activities, and volunteer with Alley Cat Advocates. There is nothing she enjoys more than curling up with a good book.

Bluegrass Homecoming
I wrote the novel Secrets a few years ago, choosing to explore a romance about a woman caught between the past and her desire to explore her future. I wanted to submit the manuscript to a traditional publisher, but was advised, at the time, this publisher did not like forty-year-old heroines. Since then, “seasoned” romance has come into wider acceptance.
 After changing the setting of the story, Secrets becomes the second book in my new Bluegrass Homecoming series, a series that will let me again explore the themes of second chances in the Bluegrass of Kentucky.
 To start my new series, I’ve written about the love story of baby boomers Howie and Grace. Their granddaughter C.B. takes center stage in the third book, Nom de Plume.
 I foresee more books in the series, because there are many characters in Secrets begging to have their own stories.
