Shannon Curtis has worked as a copywriter, business consultant, admin manager, customer service rep, logistics co-ordinator, dangerous goods handler, event planner, switch bitch and betting agent, and decided to try writing a story like those she loved to read when she found herself at home after the birth of her first child. Her books have been nominated finalists for Favourite Romantic Suspense every year from 2011 to 2016, as well as Favourite Continuing Romance Series by the Australian Romance Readers Association.

Both Viper’s Kiss and For Her Eyes Only each garnered four-star reviews from the industry’s premier review journal, Romantic Times Book Reviews, and in 2016 she won Favourite Paranormal Romance with her uniquely crafted novel, Tribal Law, and is the first Australian author to be published by Harlequin Nocturne. In 2014 she was invited as part of a select group of authors to write romance novels for The Bold and The Beautiful TV series.

As a founding member of the first romance publishing cooperative in Australia, she has also independently published stories, and works part-time as the first ever employee of Romance Writers of Australia. When she’s not providing administrative services to RWA, she spends her time daydreaming up strong heroes and heroines and complex, captivating stories. She lives in Sydney, Australia, with her husband and three children, a woolly dog and a disdainful cat. She loves reading, loves writing, and loves hearing from her readers.
