More About the Author

Life is all about change, so it's not surprising that over the past twenty years my career--and my life--have changed a lot. I expect that will continue to be true, and my intention now is that every change will ultimately be for the better. When I started writing traditional Regency romances, I was a stay-at-home mom to two toddlers, determined to sell a book before my youngest started first grade, so that I wouldn't have to get a "real job." I met that goal by the skin of my teeth, and went on to sell six Regencies and a Superromance to Harlequin over the next few years. I'd found the perfect career for an Army wife, and life was good--and relatively predictable. Then, within the space of a year, Harlequin closed their Regency line, my husband changed careers, our family moved from Texas to Indiana and I lost both of my parents. My writing stalled for a while as I tried to find new bearings. When the muse became insistent again, I began writing single title historical romance and found a new home with HarperCollins, where I published a total of eight books, most of them set in my comfy Regency period. After a while, however, my muse became restless, just as I was trying to adjust to a new change --an empty nest. A period of self-discovery followed, and I gradually came to the realization that happiness in life and my career were no one's responsibility but mine. What a freeing, terrifying concept! I began to pursue more outside interests, to include scuba diving (I have over 70 dives to my credit now), community theater and Taekwondo, where I am now a second degree black belt. Hiking became another love of mine, and in the summer of 2010, I hiked the last 100 km of the Camino de Santiago in northern Spain with a group of like-minded women, some of whom were also writers. I also began experimenting with other kinds of writing: plays, women's fiction, then my new and current love, teen science fiction romance.

Throughout my career, despite all of the inevitable changes, I have been passionate about helping other writers, particularly educating them about the realities of this business so that they might avoid the myriad pitfalls lurking for those of us who live on dreams. To that end, for twenty years I moderated a weekly Novel Workshop on AOL where I answered questions on every writing topic imaginable; I taught (and still occasionally teach) online writing courses, and I began collecting and sharing data on author earnings from various publishers, so that writers could make more informed decisions about their careers. I feel strongly--have always felt strongly--that in this business as in any other, knowledge is power. Historically, it has been difficult for writers to gain the knowledge they need to make informed career decisions, and I have tried to do my part to change that. I plan to keep changing and growing, and I challenge everyone reading this to do the same.Today really is the first day of the rest of your life. Seize the day!

From the Author

Brenda Hiatt is glad to be back with SCANDALOUS VIRTUE.
Hello! I'm Brenda Hiatt, author of SCANDALOUS VIRTUE, my "comeback book." I'd previously written several Regency romances and one time travel romance for Harlequin, but then Life with a capital "L" intervened. Now I'm back, with what I believe is my best book ever, recharged by my brief hiatus. My first single title historical romance, SCANDALOUS VIRTUE tells the story of a sheltered, strait-laced young widow who is ready to kick up her heels for a change, and a notorious rake who is ready to reform. Each sees the other as just the ticket to help make a change--with suprising (and hilarious) results. Their steamy adventures (and a scandal or two) take them from Regency London to Paris and back, as they both learn about life and love. I hope you'll enjoy reading this book as much as I enjoyed writing it! I love e-mail from my readers, so let me know how you liked the book. (And thanks for reading this far! <g>)
