When Shari Anton took a creative writing class and found she possessed some talent for writing fiction, she dared to dream of a career that allowed her to work at home, shun pantyhose and take unlimited coffee breaks. Determined to write what she loved to read—historical romance—she spent the next few years learning the craft of writing a novel. Her persistence paid off in 1997. Since then she has written novels for such publishers as Harlequin, Warner Books and Grand Central Publishing.
Anton and her husband live in Wisconsin, have two grown children and do their best to spoil their grandchildren. Since retirement, travel has become a favorite pastime. Shari can now brag that she's been to all 50 states, most of Latin America and Canada, is currently working on Europe, and has Asia and Africa in her sights.
