Kay Lyons always wanted to be a writer, ever since the age of seven or eight when she copied the pictures out of a Charlie Brown book and rewrote the story because she didn’t like the plot. Through the years her stories have changed but one characteristic stayed true—they were all romances. Each and every one of her manuscripts included a love story.

Published in 2005 with Harlequin Enterprises, Kay’s first romance hit #7 on the bestseller list. Kay has also been a HOLT Medallion, Book Buyers Best and RITA Award nominee. Kay is a member of Alliance of Independent Authors, Authors Guild, Novelists, Inc, and other writing groups, as well as a Jeep fan and member of numerous Jeep clubs. If you're a fellow Jeep-er, look for the Queen of Hearts  at an event and say hello.
