Jan Scarbrough is the author of two popular Bluegrass series, writing heartwarming contemporary romances about home and family, single moms and children.

Jan lives in Louisville, Kentucky, with one rescued dog, one rescued cat, and a husband she rescued 23 years ago.

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.
