Visit with Author Sherrill Bodine

We end our Grand Central authors tour by visiting author Sherrill Bodine. Sherrill sold her first novel in 1988 and a week later received a two-book contract from Fawcett. Sixteen novels later, she has seen THE OTHER AMANDA win the Wisconsin Romance Writers of America Write Touch Readers’ Award and TALK OF THE TOWN was chosen by Cosmopolitan magazine as its “Red Hot Read” for February 2009.

Not only is Sherrill a prolific author, but she also finds time to work on charity board projects. To see which charities Sherrill supports visit her website.

Sherrill's upcoming January 2010 release will be A BLACK TIE AFFAIR

About the book:

Fashion curator Athena Smith will do anything to get her perfectly manicured hands on the Clayworth family’s celebrated couture collection for her exhibit. So when she’s called in to make sure the gowns are the real deal, she’s ecstatic...until a dress she’s examining turns out to be loaded with toxins (talk about killer threads!) and Athena faints dead away, only to wake up face-to-face with the One That Got Away, notorious Chicago banker Drew Clayworth. Drew still believes Athena betrayed him all those years ago, and he’s sure he can’t trust her. But when the priceless gowns go missing, she offers to help track them down. Reluctantly allied in the quest, Drew and Athena are soon stunned by the barely restrained passion still sizzling between them...and memories both bitter and sweet. Is their new partnership just a business arrangement? Or is this something more than . . . A Black Tie Affair? has said A BLACK TIE AFFAIR is “A witty and sexy new contemporary romance.”
Sounds like a great read. Since A BLACK TIE AFFAIR has not be released yet, Sherrill will give away a copy of TALK OF THE TOWN. So, leave a comment to be entered into the drawing. I will choose a winner on December 31st!
Best of luck and Happy New Year!!
