Charity Pineiro is the sweet and sexy contemporary side of my NY Times and USA Today Bestselling Author half which writes dark and edgy paranormal romance and action-packed romantic suspense. I wrote my first novel in the fifth grade when my teacher assigned a project — to write a book for a class lending library. Bitten by the writing bug, I continued with my passion for the written word and in 1999, my first novel was released. I am now the author of nearly 40 published novels and novellas. When not writing, I am a Jersey Girl, wife, and mother to an aspiring writer and fashionista.
