Making a Scene
PRESENTER: Jamie Denton
Jamie Denton surrendered a long time career as a paralegal to pursue her passion for writing when she sold her first attempt at a contemporary romance to Harlequin Books four days before Christmas in 1994. Since then, she has gone on to see over three million copies of her books in print worldwide and translated into several languages. Not only have her books appeared on bestseller lists, but she is also the recipient of several notable awards, including nominations for Best Harlequin Temptation and Best Harlequin Blaze from Romantic Times, back-to-back RITA nominations, and a National Readers’ Choice Award nomination for Best Erotic Romance. She’s the recipient of the Laurel Wreath Award, and in 2004, Affair de Coeur voted one of her novels Best Contemporary Romance of the year.
Jamie’s passions do occasionally extend beyond writing. In those rare moments away from the computer, she’s refilling the creative well with a knitting project for one of her seventeen grandchildren, working a cross-stitch project or spending time in the kitchen trying out new recipes on her husband of nearly forty years.
She can even be found curled up with a good book (what else but a romance?) along with Dudley and Maggie, her spoiled rotten…uh…pampered, pair of Golden Retrievers.
LOCATION: NEW Parma Library located at 6996 Powers Blvd., Parma, OH 44129. We will be in Conference Rm B
