Tawny Weber is usually found dreaming up stories in her California home, surrounded by dogs, cats and kids. When she’s not writing hot, spicy stories for Harlequin Blaze, she’s shopping for the perfect pair of boots or drooling over Johnny Depp pictures (when her husband isn’t looking, of course). A lifelong romance reader, it took a push from her husband for her to try her hand at writing. She started in 2002, joining Romance Writers of America and going on to final multiple times in RWA’s Golden Heart contest, as well as serving on a variety of chapter boards and offices. After winning the Harlequin Blaze Challenge, she sold her first book, DOUBLE DARE in 2006. In September 2010, her tenth Blaze, RIDING THE WAVES, hits the bookshelves.
