"Few thrills equal writing a romance," saysJo-Ann Power,"and adding the spice of a mystery to hurry the pace of falling in love! "The next best thrill is settling down in the living room of my hilltop home and opening a romance novel -- or watching (for the umpteenth time!) my favorite movies:Jane Eyre, Rebecca,orNotorious.My husband Steve shares that passion for books and movies -- and his tastes are (helpfully) more modern than mine. "With our three children grown, Steve and I now travel. We're trekking around our new home state of Texas, the great southwest, and soon we go to Ireland where I will do research for a new historical. "It's no mystery why I like to write! In no other business can you meet so many wonderful people at home and abroad, explore their country, research their past, and afterward, tell a whopper of a story!"Power, Jo-Ann is the author of 'Allure', published 2007 under ISBN 9781416575856 and ISBN 1416575855.
