Rowan Worth grew up loving the happy ending while traveling all over the world in a military family. Long before the internet era made keeping in touch easy, she took her “friends” with her when she moved. Her books fed her voracious appetite for adventure and excitement, yet also provided continuity and comfort…and still do. Bedtime stories were fairy tales, Robin Hood, King Arthur, Mary Poppins, and Peter Pan read by her parents and grandparents, with an international twist as her mom collected tales from around the world during their travels. Books of every type were welcomed in the house–from Sir Arthur Ransome to Enid Blyton and Carolyn Keene to Georgette Heyer to Andre Norton to Anne McCaffrey, with a bit of Ian Fleming, John D. MacDonald, and Alistair MacLean thrown in. The stories from her childhood helped form what she looked for as an adult reader: Adventure. Mystery. Camaraderie. Family. Romance.
An English major in college, she wrote pages and pages of the stories circling in her head whenever time allowed–but it was years before she realized she was writing romances. Shortly after she got married, she joined Romance Writers of America (RWA), and some of its local chapters, and started learning the professional side of writing. She is the President of the Washington (DC) Romance Writers chapter of RWA. Her manuscript Lacy’s Gift (now Touch of Lies) came in second in the esteemed Georgia Romance Writers “Maggie” contest for unpublished authors and recently finaled in the Wisconsin “Fab 5” contest.
She is represented by an agent with the Irene Goodman Agency in New York. Her first book, Past Imperfect, was published in 2015.
