I’m so thrilled to be participating in the new FALL INTO ROMANCE collection, and I wanted to introduce you to all my wonderful fellow authors.  To hep you get to know them better, I asked them all one simple question: which actor should play you in a movie of your life?  Here they are (in alphabetical order), and here’s how they answered:

Franky Brown

Franky A Brown is a Southern author, obsessed with reading, who writes chick lit and romantic comedy.

Franky chose Meg Ryan for a movie of her life.  Why?  “Might be a boring movie. I need someone who can do high drama and goofy comedy, especially when it reaches the part about writing my comedies.   Maybe Meg Ryan?”

Franky’s story in FALL INTO ROMANCE is “Wired for Romance.”  You can follow her at her website.


Stacy Clafin

USA Today bestselling author Stacy Claflin entertains readers in a variety of genres, from sweet contemporary romance to paranormal to suspense.

Stacy picked Cynthia Nixon to play herself.  Her explanation?  “If you’re going for looks, it has to be Cynthia Nixon. (I even have strawberry hair now.) Personality? I have no idea.”

Stacy’s story in the collection is “Lost in Romance.”  You can follow her on Facebook.


Tamie Dearen

Tamie Dearen, “the author who knows romance by heart,” writes sweet and inspirational romantic comedies and young adult fantasy with a touch of romance.

Tamie selected Sandra Bullock to play her.  Why?  “Sandra Bullock, because my husband has the hots for her.”

Tamie’s story in the set is “Restoring Romance.”  You can follow Tamie at her website, and on her Amazon Author Page.


J.J. DiBenedetto

You probably already know who I am, since you’re here!  But just in case, I’m the author of 13 novels so far – the paranormal romance/suspense Dream Series, and the lighthearted suspense thriller Jane Barnaby Adventures.

I picked Jack Black to play me in a movie.  Not that my personality is remotely like his, but physically he’s about the best match I can come up with.

My story in the collection is “Finding Dori.”  You’re already at my website, but you can also follow me on Facebook, Twitter and on my Amazon Author Page.


Jess Elliott

Jessica L. Elliott has been writing since she could hold a pencil. She specializes in stories with happy endings, a touch of adventure, and lots of heart.

Jess picked Amy Adams.  Why?  “Dang, that’s a hard one. Maybe Amy Adams because she seems to be as upbeat and chipper about life as I am. And she sings, which is awesome because I like to do that when I think no one can hear me.”

Jess’ story is “Katie’s Chance for Romance.”  You can follow her at her website,


Raine English

USA Today bestselling and award-winning author Raine English writes sweet small-town contemporary romance, paranormal romance, and romantic suspense.

Like Tamie above, Raine picked Sandra Bullock to play her in a film of her life.  Why?  “I have a clumsy goofy side that she’d be able to portray well.”

Raine’s story in the collection is “At Second Glance.”  You can follow her at her website, and also on Facebook.


Shanna Hatfield

Convinced everyone deserves a happy ending, USA Today bestselling author Shanna Hatfield is out to make it happen one story at a time.

Shanna chose Lauren Holly to portray her.  Her reason?  “She’s sassy and tough while still looking sweet and lovely.”

Shanna’s story in the collection is “Blown Into Romance.”  You can follow Shanna at her website, on Facebook and you can also sign up for her newsletter.


Liwen Ho

Liwen Y. Ho writes sweet and inspirational romance infused with heart, humor, and a taste of home (her Asian roots).

Liwen picked Reese Witherspoon to play her in a movie.  Why?  “I’d have to go with Reese Witherspoon of the Legally Blonde era. I may not be blonde, but I’m known to be a little too naive and innocent sometimes. (Once upon a time, I may or may not have squeezed out all the air from my supermarket produce bags, so I wouldn’t end up paying for the extra weight! LOL) Plus, I LOVE the color pink, just like Elle Woods”

Liwen’s story in the collection is “Chasing Romance.”  You can follow her at her website.


Kit Morgan

Bestselling author Kit Morgan delivers pure fun and romance! She writes sweet, clean, historical and contemporary romance with a strong sense of family and community. She also writes high adventure, scienefiction time travel under Geralyn Beauchamp.

Kit chose Anne Hathaway to play her in a movie.  Her explanation?  “Wow, that’s a good question. Hmmm, I’d have to say Anne Hathaway.”

Kit’s story in FALL INTO ROMANCE is “Lessons in Romance.”  You can follow her at her website.


Melanie Snitker

Melanie D. Snitker writes clean, contemporary romance, weaving together inspirational stories of faith, love, and family.

Melanie picked Julia Stiles as her actress.  “I checked with my brother, Matthew, who has an eye for everything related to movies. He said Julia Stiles, so that’s who I’d go with.”

Melanie’s story in the collection is “Finding Forever in Romance.”  You can follow her at her website, on Facebook, Twitter, her Amazon Author Page, and on BookBub.
