USA Today Bestselling author, Bronwen Evans (Bron),
loves story-telling — gobbling up movies, reading
books and attending the theater. Her head is always filled
with characters and stories, particularly lovers in angst.
Is it any wonder she’s a proud romance writer.
Bronwen attended Victoria University, Wellington, New
Zealand earning a bachelor’s degree in Commerce and
Administration, majoring in Marketing and Accounting. She

It was while living and working in London she discovered the
offices of Mills & Boon and the germ of an idea to embark on

publication by joining RWA, The Beau Monde, RWAustralia and
Bronwen’s first manuscript, INVITATION TO RUIN,
was completed late 2009, and was sold to Kensington
