MJ Fredrick

I've been writing forever. In elementary school, I wrote plays and pseudo-Trixie Belden mysteries. After fifth grade, I wrote my first romance, a Grease rip-off. I continued writing serialized stories throughout high school, then went to college and got married. After my son was in kindergarten, I started writing again and joined RWA. Four years later, I got serious and buckled down. Two years after that, I finalled in RWA's Golden Heart in 2003, and the ball started rolling. Even that wasn't the magic touch, and I finalled three more times before selling in 2007. After completing 20 manuscripts, my first two books are out within two weeks of each other, and both have firefighter heroes! Where There's Smoke is coming from The Wild Rose Press in March, and Hot Shot, a romantic suspense, is coming from Samhain Publishing in April.
