Christine Carroll

Christine Carroll first discovered romance with Rosemary Rogers’s Sweet Savage Love. How thrilling it was when Steve dragged Ginny under the wagon and ripped her bodice! Romance has come a long way since those early days of the genre, and so has Christine, having graduated from the sidelines to writing her first contemporary single title. Along the road to publication, she studied with RWA cofounder and teacher Rita Gallagher and has watched a number of her fellow students graduate from the manuscript stage to selling. She recommends that aspiring romance authors join both RWA National and their local chapters, where the multipublished rub elbows with and give advice to members who aren’t as far along.
