    About the Author: "USA Today Bestselling Author Jennifer Theriot (pronounced Terrio) hails from the Great State of Texas. She is a career woman, working as CFO of a Texas based real estate investment firm. Working in her capacity as CFO, she felt something was missing and discovered her passion for writing novels--mostly at night and on weekends. In her limited spare time Jennifer enjoys being outdoors; preferably somewhere on a beach curled up with a good book. Spending time with family and friends, watching a baseball game and enjoying a good bottle of wine are usually on her to-do lists. Jennifer has three grown children and is also 'MiMi' to four beautiful grandkids - all of whom she adores. Theriot is an admitted music junkie, loving every type of music, which takes up most of the memory on her iPhone. Her love of music is reflected a great deal in her books. Jennifer took a chance that there could be an interest in romance with middle aged couples who are finding themselves at a crossroads and wrote her debut novel Out of the Box Awakening, which centers on the hope of finding happiness and passion through unexpected heartache. It emphasizes the need for family and friends as Jennifer has learned in her own life. Grownup romance from the other side of 30 is how she characterizes her books. The books have also been described as "Mature Sexy" by one reviewer..."

    About the Author: "H.E. RODDA - PROFILE Born in Washington, D.C., H.E. Rodda’s career has been wide and varied. After dropping out of college midway through his Freshman year, he spent the next several years, working at various pursuits, including stock clerk for a medical supply business, teller in a lending institution, field worker for a real estate appraisal company, and chase man for a finance company. In the midst of this, he spent six months on active duty with the Army Reserve and another six months living in the Bahamas where he made his living in construction, all of this by the age of 21. From ages 23 to 29, he worked in the Life Insurance Industry, mostly in sales, sales training and sales management. By age 30, he had found his way into his first love, residential design and construction, eventually partnering with others to own a piece of his own company, designing and building homes. During that same period, he became involved in local politics, serving as an appointee on the area planning commission, then later holding elective office as a county commissioner. Divesting from his construction company, and following his political period, he formed his own consulting company, specializing in matters related to real estate and land use. Through all those years, going back to his childhood, Rodda has also had a burning desire to write. His wide range of experience has led him to write a large variety of material, from short stories to non-fiction satire and opinion. He considers writing a powerful means of expression, and fiction, its most powerful. But, only now has he had the fortitude to write a novel he feels worthy of publication. Currently single, he has been both a husband and father, and more recently, a grandfather. Having also lost two wives to cancer, his experiences as a family man have also contributed to his writing point of view, and it is the collection of all these experiences that have led him to publishing his first novel, “Identity Crisis.”"

    About the Author: "Working part time I had plenty of time on my hands, I had never written anything more significant than a shopping list since I had left school and had never felt the need. But somewhere in the madness I was compelled to write down what I was going through and began to keep a diary. Not having anything good or interesting to write about my own life at that particular time I began writing snippets of funny anecdotes fed to me by a friend from his life at University in an attempt to cheer me up. Neither of us really took life too seriously opting to look on the funny side of things, but the more he told me the more I realised that the actions of him and his friends didn’t do them any favours."
