Serena Yates

SERENA YATES is the penname for a night owl who starts writing when everyone else in her time zone is asleep. She has loved reading all her life and spent most of her childhood with her nose buried in a book. Although she always wanted to be a writer, financial independence came first. Twentysome years and a successful business career later she took some online writing classes and never looked back. 

Living and working in seven countries has taught her that there is more than one way to get things done. It has instilled tremendous respect for the many different cultures,
beliefs, attitudes and preferences that exist on our planet. 

Serena likes exploring those differences in her stories, most of which happen to be romances. Her characters have a tendency to want to do their own thing, so she often has to rein them back in. The one thing they all agree on is the
desire for a happy ending. 

She currently lives in the United Kingdom, sharing her house with her vast collection of books. She likes reading, traveling, spending time with her nieces and listening to
classical music. She has a passion for science and learning new languages. 

Serena wold love to hear from you at serenayates09@googlemail.com.
