Tamsen Parker

Tamsen Parker is a stay-at-home mom by day, USA Today best-selling erotic romance writer by naptime. Her novella Craving Flight was named to the Best of 2015 lists of Heroes and Heartbreakers, Smexy Books, Romance Novel News, and Dear Author. Heroes and Heartbreakers called her Compass series “bewitching, humorous, erotically intense, and emotional.”

After earning a bachelor’s in sociology and a master’s degree in urban planning, and working as an administrator and a consultant, she found her true calling in writing romance for everyone. She couldn’t go to school forever, but doing research for her books is the next best thing. While her settings, heat level, and pairings differ, the end result is always the same: happily ever after or, at the very least, happy for now. Her daughter calls her work “grown-up books where people fall in love,” her critique partner calls it “elegant superfilth.” They’re both correct.

Tamsen lives with her family outside of Boston, where she tweets too much, sleeps too little and is always in the middle of a book. Aside from good food, sweet Rieslings, and gin cocktails, she has a fondness for monograms and subway maps. She has also been bitten by the planner bug and may be consumed by her washi tape and sticker stash any day now. She should really start drinking coffee.
