Shirley Hailstock began her writing life as a lover of reading.  She likes nothing better than to find a quiet corner where she can get lost in a book, explore new worlds and visit places she never expected to see.  As an author, she can not only visit those places, but she can be the heroine of her own stories.  The author of twenty-five novels and novellas, Shirley has received numerous awards, including the Waldenbooks Bestselling Romance Award and The Emma Merritt Award from Romance Writers of America.  Romantic Times Magazine awarded her a Career Achievement Award and The New York Chapter of Romance Writers of America gave her their Golden Apple Award for Lifetime Achievement.  In addition, one of her books was included in the the Top 100 Romances of the 20th Century list and she is a recipient of Fairleigh Dickinson University’s highest award, the Pinnacle.  Shirley is a past president of Romance Writers of America.  Her books have appeared on Blackboard and Library Journal Best Seller Lists.
