Girls Write Out

Our Big Announcement

I've got happy news! Girls Write Out authors Kristin, Colleen, Diann, and I are contracting to write a contemporary romantic novella collection for our publisher, Thomas Nelson!

The collection, entitled Smitten, features the fictional town of Smitten, Vermont. When the local economy threatens the town's survival, four friends propose the idea of making Smitten into the Romance Capitol of America. During the course of their first transitional year, each woman finds a love of her own.

As you might imagine, we're thrilled to be writing a collection together, and you can expect some aspects of our personalities to come shining through our heroines.

(A side note so you can understand the significance of this moment: Kristin, Colleen, and I did a collection together years ago, Blind Dates. On occasion, Diann has been known to moan and groan that she never got to write one with us. So now, Diann, you have no reason to whine. ;-)

Here we are, signing the contract with our (Colleen's, Diann's, and my) agent Karen Solem at the ACFW conference a week ago. A momentous occasion!

The Authors
Kristin Billerbeck
Kristin Billerbeck is a proud Californian, wife, mother of four, and connoisseur of the irrelevant. She writes Christian Chick Lit; where she finds need for most of the useless facts lulling about in her head.

Colleen Coble

Colleen Coble writes romantic suspense with a strong atmospheric element. A lovable animal of some kind--usually a dog--always populates her novels. She can be bribed with DeBrand mocha truffles.

Denise Hunter

Denise Hunter writes women's fiction and love stories with a strong emotional element. Her husband says he provides her with all her romantic material, but Denise insists a good imagination helps too.

Diann Hunt

Diann Hunt writes romantic comedy and humorous women's fiction. She has been happily married forever, loves her family, chocolate, her friends, chocolate, her dog, and well, chocolate.

Hannah Alexander

Cheryl Hodde writes romantic medical suspense under the pen name of Hannah Alexander, using all the input she can get from her husband, Mel, for the medical expertise. For fun she hikes and reads. Out of guilt, she rescues discarded cats. She and Mel are presently taking orders from four pampered strays.
