Hi there, Writerspace readers! Since this is my second book set in Amish Country, I’ve been asked this question a number of times: As an author who has resided in California and Texas and written contemporary romances, what drew you to the Amish genre? So, it all goes back to my sister. She moved from… Read More

I’m so happy to be here at Writerspace sharing Pine Creek Courtship, my debut Amish romance with you. For many years I wrote young adult romance. I loved the sweet innocence of falling in love for the first time. I wrote over a dozen novels in the genre and enjoyed every bit of my time… Read More

Award winning author, Zoe Forward is a hopeless romantic who can't decide between paranormal and contemporary romance. So, she writes both. Her novels have won numerous awards including the Prism, Readers' Choice Heart of Excellence, Golden Quill, Carolyn Readers Choice Award, and the Booksellers' Best Award.
When she's not typing at her laptop, she's cheering her son on at baseball, chasing after the toddler or cleaning up the newest pet mess from the menagerie that occupies her house. She's a board-certified veterinarian. You can ask her about your pet's problem, but be warned she's into integrative medicine so her answer might involve treatments you've never heard of.
She's madly in love with her globe trotting conservation ecologist husband and she's happiest when he returns to their home base.
What a year this has been! I hope you and your loved ones are safe and well. I think so many of us have a new appreciation for patience, coming off this last year. We’ve had to wait. And wait. Wait for news, wait for numbers, wait for vaccines, wait to see friends and family… Read More
I always knew I wanted to be a writer and in grade five, I penned my first story, bound it (with staples) and a cardboard cover and did all the illustrations myself (if you’ve ever seen my drawings you’ll know how horrible they must have been. I still draw stick figures). Luckily, this book will never see the light of day again.
In high school I fell in love with historical romance and then contemporary romance. After graduating University with an English Literature degree, I married my own hero, pursued a degree in Interior Design and then opened my own business.
After the birth of our first child, I knew it was time to fulfill the dream of writing romantic fiction. I’m a hopeless romantic who is living my dream, penning happily-ever-after’s for my characters in between managing kids and the family business. Writing on a laptop in the middle of the country in a rambling old Victorian house would be ideal, but I’m quite content living in suburbia with my husband, our two young children, and very bad cat.
I’d love to hear from you! Always feel free to connect with me via email, Twitter, or Facebook.
