By Joanne Rock I’m celebrating a reissue this week. If you missed LOVE SO TENDER, a fun, funny contemporary romance anthology headlined by Stephanie Bond when it came out in print, I hope you’ll pick it up now that it’s back in a digital edition. I’d forgotten how much this project made me smile, but… Read More

Joanne Rock

Joanne Rock

Three-time RITA nominee Joanne Rock has never met a romance sub-genre she didn’t like. The author of over seventy books currently writes sexy contemporary stories for Harlequin Desire and small town romance for Harlequin Superromance. An optimist by nature and perpetual seeker of silver linings, Joanne finds romance fits her life outlook perfectly—love is worth fighting for. A frequent speaker at regional and national writing conferences she enjoys giving back to the writing community that nurtured and inspired her early career. She has a Masters degree in Literature from the University of Louisville but credits her fiction writing skills to her intensive study with fellow author and friend Catherine Mann. When she’s not writing, Joanne enjoys travel, especially to see her favorite sports teams play with her former sports editor husband and three athletic-minded sons.

Joanne Rock Contest

Joanne Rock is giving away a signed copy of NIGHTS UNDER THE TENNESSEE STARS, plus a “My Happy Place” sign and a notebook for jotting your thoughts and daydreams!

When the four of us set out to create Charlie, the matchmaking Jack Russell Terrier in THE BILLIONAIRE’S MATCHMAKER, we drew partly from our own experiences with animals that have melted our hearts. Our pets may only be in our lives for a few years, but the bond they create is strong and ever-lasting. Today,… Read More

Culling the herd—aka, why my DVR will have more room in 2013-14 TV season

on August 23, 2013

As the new television season is about to kick off in the next few weeks, I flipped through my DVR list of preset series recordings and decided it was time to cull the herd. I’ll admit I don’t watch a lot of live TV—which means I’m usually hopelessly out of the loop about current events… Read More
