Char Chaffin

Char Chaffin started reading romance, science fiction and horror at a very young age. Her love of books is directly responsible for her overflowing bookcases, and the bounty stored on her new Kindle threatens to eclipse her entire paper collection. Char currently writes mainstream and contemporary romance filled with family, rich characters and engaging plots. For her, it all comes back to the love.

Char began her writing odyssey as a poet, crafting Victorian-style poetry, then went on to writing short stories. She found her niche when she began writing longer and longer short stories, until she wrote her first novel. It might never see the light of day, but writing it taught her a lot. Over the years she worked a variety of jobs, from farm hand to costume designer to fiscal accountant, before deciding a writing career was her true focus.

A native New Yorker, Char lives Upstate on a sixty-acre farm with husband Don, rat terrier Daisy Mae and two barn cats who constantly slack off on the job of keeping the barn free of varmints. The Chaffin extended family is scattered all over the United States, including Alaska.

When she’s not pounding away at her keyboard or burying her nose in books and Kindle, she tends a huge vegetable garden and helps Don maintain a sixty-acre farm.

A Note From Char Chaffin

If writing is my passion, then romance is my world. Love, in all its tender glory and ruthless power, balances the universe and makes even the harshest of us better, stronger. I believe love can grow without romance, but I also know love will never be quite as necessary in our lives if a touch of romance isn't present to usher it in.

A good romance warms us from within. We can relate to the lovers on the page, and we can dream along with them. We feel their joy, their pain, their loss and their redemption. We invest in their story from its tentative beginnings to its tumultuous conclusion and we come away from that final page feeling somehow better.

I write real romance, with all its imperfections and its often-messy issues. My heroes aren't perfect and neither are my heroines. They have faults and problems just like we all do. What they also have, is the greatest degree of courage, to reach out and grab for what they want. I believe in the happy-ever-after ending but I also believe you have to work for it. And along the way, my lovers are put to the test.

I hope you enjoy the journey they take, and come away from that final page feeling very, very good.
