  • Landing It: My Life On and Off the Ice
Lee Hanson, Lee Hanson For forty years, I studied the nuances of body language. I learned to spot the telltale, fleeting facial expression, the shift in posture, tone of voice or cadence. I took every course, read everything I could find on the subject. In time, I became so good at it that what folks really wanted was as clear as if they were speaking out loud.
      And I became a multi-million dollar saleswoman.
      I was also an avid reader with a strong desire to write, but I was married and supporting a family... I was simply making too much money to try something as harebrained as that! So I waited impatiently for retirement to scratch my nagging writer’s itch.
      My only regret now is that I didn't retire earlier! I've had such fun writing these novels, dear reader. I may physically be in a quiet suburb of Orlando, but now I get to live vicariously through my intrepid body language expert, Julie O'Hara... and it's a trip!
      The fact that so many thousands of folks are enjoying Julie, too, well... that's a blessing. Again, thank you so much for taking the time to visit my site. I’ll try my best to add some interesting and informative stuff. In the meantime, rest assured that I am working on another engrossing story to puzzle and entertain you... and PLEASE, leave a comment or a review.
      I really do care what you want... but I can't 'see' if you're smiling from here...

Kate Hewitt, Kate Hewitt ( Katherine Swartz Hewitt ) wrote her first story at the age of five, simply because her older brother had written one and she thought she could do it too. That story was one sentence long—fortunately, they have become a bit more detailed as she’s grown older.
      She studied drama in college and shortly after graduation moved to New York City to pursue a career in theatre. This was derailed by something far better—meeting the man of her dreams who happened also to be her older brother's childhood friend.
      Ten days after their wedding they moved to England, where Kate worked a variety of different jobs—drama teacher, editorial assistant, church youth worker, secretary, and finally mother.
      When her oldest daughter was one year old, she sold her first short story to a British magazine, The People’s Friend. Since then she has written many stories and serials as well as novels. In 2007 she received ‘The Call’ from Mills & Boon for her first Harlequin Presents novel, The Italian’s Chosen Wife. Since then she has written over 25 books for Harlequin, and also writes women’s fiction for Carina UK and Lion Hudson Press. She loves writing stories that both tackle tough issues and celebrate the redeeming power of love.
      Besides writing, she enjoys reading, traveling, and learning to knit—it’s an ongoing process and she’s made a lot of scarves.
      Kate lives in a tiny village on the northwest coast of England with her husband, five young children, and an overly affectionate Golden Retriever.

Anthony Horowitz, Anthony Horowitz is the author of one previous book for teens: The Devil and His Boy, which received glowing reviews all around. He is also the author of several plays and television screenplays in his native England.
      Anthony Horowitz's life might have been copied from the pages of Charles Dickens or the Brothers Grimm. Born in 1956 in Stanmore, Middlesex, to a family of wealth and status, Anthony was raised by nannies, surrounded by servants and chauffeurs. His father, a wealthy businessman, was, says Mr. Horowitz, "a fixer for Harold Wilson." What that means exactly is unclear — "My father was a very secretive man," he says — so an aura of suspicion and mystery surrounds both the word and the man. As unlikely as it might seem, Anthony's father, threatened with bankruptcy, withdrew all of his money from Swiss bank accounts in Zurich and deposited it in another account under a false name and then promptly died. His mother searched unsuccessfully for years in attempt to find the money, but it was never found. That too shaped Anthony's view of things. Today he says, "I think the only thing to do with money is spend it." His mother, whom he adored, eccentrically gave him a human skull for his 13th birthday. His grandmother, another Dickensian character, was mean-spirited and malevolent, a destructive force in his life. She was, he says, "a truly evil person", his first and worst arch villain. "My sister and I danced on her grave when she died," he now recalls. Link to his
