Johanna Lindsey is one of the world's most successful romance authors. She has written over 30 books, of which 54 million copies are in print and have been translated into 12 languages. As a young wife and mother, Lindsey became a great fan of romance novels and wrote her first book on a whim. "I started writing as a hobby. I never thought of being a writer when I was young.
Now I wouldn't want to do anything else". The first book, "Captive Bride" (1977) was written when she was 25. To the young author's great surprise, it made The New York Times Bestsellers list. Lindsey had found a romance formula that worked. Take any setting past or present, introduce a rascally-rakish male and a romantic heroine, let their hearts ignite with passion, lust, and love. Lindsey has something of a cult following, following such titles as "Heart of Thunder", "Hearts Aflame", "A Heart So Wild", and "Keeper of the Heart". She has loyal fans reading "Glorious Angel" and "Gentle Rogue" and legions of devotees buying her Malory family series.
Because her father was in the U.S. Army, Lindsey traveled widely as a child. She was born in Germany and grew up in Fort Knox, Kentucky. The family settled in Hawaii and Lindsey was married right after high school to her husband Ralph, who has since passed away. She has three sons and is a grandmother.
