Cari Lynn Webb lives in Alabama with her family. If she isn’t at her computer, she can usually be found: picking up her daughters from school, dropping off at swimming or soccer practice or running into the grocery store for that one thing she forgot on her shopping list. She loves escaping into a romance and her e-reader can usually be found in her passenger seat. Visit her at: www.carilynnwebb.com.
You’ve met Anna J. Stewart (or someone like her) before. She was the girl who spun in circles on the playground hoping her Wonder Woman costume would magically appear before playing cops and robbers a la Charlie’s Angels–as Sabrina (she was the smart one). Anna was the girl in the back of the class with a paperback romance hidden in her algebra book (and yes, she failed algebra).
Growing up in the 70′s and 80′s meant there weren’t a lot of YA books, so she ventured early into mainstream fiction and read Stephen King’s CARRIE at the age of 8. Discovering Nora Roberts and romance novels early in high school opened her eyes to the wonders of storytelling and the beauty of a happily ever after.
So here she is, many years later with an English degree from CSU Sacramento, an RWA Golden Heart nomination behind her, countless stories in her head, and a serious addiction to STAR TREK, SUPERNATURAL, and SHERLOCK. She recently wrapped up a nearly 8-year stint working as assistant to NYTimes bestselling author Brenda Novak where she helped run Brenda’s annual online auction for diabetes research. When she’s not writing or reading (which she never has enough time for!), she’s working on dollhouse miniatures and tolerating her overly-affectionate cat named Snickers (or perhaps it’s Snickers who tolerates her).

~ Excerpt Suddenly Sophie ~
Sophie pushed up from her desk, took a moment to straighten her paperwork and put the collection of scattered pens back into the flowerpot holder. She knocked a reverent knuckle against the memorial photograph of her mother and stopped in the doorway, the questionnaire in her hands. “I talked to Gideon Walker today.”
“Did you?” Melanie perched on a tall stool in front of the bonsai, a pair of tiny manicure scissors in her hands poised to trim the tiny shrub into compliance. “You didn’t ask for another loan, did you? It took you months to recover the last time he turned you down.”
“Don’t exaggerate. And this didn’t have anything to do with money.” But Melanie brought up a good point. The fact that she’d had to ask Gideon of all people about finding a date almost stopped her cold. She could have approached Coop or Ty this morning at the Bar & Grill, but they’d both looked…occupied. That left Gideon, and seeing as she was going to be at the bank anyway…
If she’d ever doubted the universe was determined to make her its comic relief, she now had solid proof. Stuffy Gideon probably disapproved of Sophie’s tendency toward taking chances, but what was the point in living if you weren’t going to go after life with a bit of gusto and purpose? That didn’t mean she didn’t learn from her mistakes. She’d readjusted her plans and now she was poised to make The Flower Shop better than ever. Thanks to Gideon, she’d scrimped and saved enough in the past year to put a decent deposit down on the building next door. Take that, Mr. Blue-Eyed Grumpy Pants.
