    About the Author: "Claire’s love of writing began at age six when she wrote her first short story – a total of three lines. Later, in college, she almost failed Math because, instead of algebraic equations, her notes were filled with poetry and book ideas. To this day Claire is never found far from pen and paper – or a calculator. Claire believes that to tell a story you must listen to one first. Her books and stories are fictional tales based on the emotions and experiences of individuals who have shared their own stories with her. She is passionate about giving a voice to those who are not heard by creating fictional events and then bringing them to life with true human experiences."

    About the Author: "Lorine S. Thomas is the author of the recently released thriller, “Cross Your Heart”, and is currently working on the next book in the series that follows the characters Detective Joseph Hall, Dr. Samantha Reece and ADA Geoffery Calloway. Lorine’s early childhood was filled with a passion of reading just about anything that caught her attention and captured her imagination. It wasn’t until she was in her adult years when she dove into her first thriller, “The Switch” by Sandra Brown, and that got her hooked on that genre. She soon found herself enthralled in the books by James Patterson, Dean Koontz, Nora Roberts and Sandra Brown, just to name a few. She marveled at how they were able to write such captivating stories and characters and often wondered what their secret was. She would soon find that out, when in 2006, she came up with the crazy idea of seeing if she had what it took to put pen to paper and write a full length story. At first not quite sure where to start, she looked for ideas everywhere but nothing seemed to light the inspiration bulb. And then after weeks of nothing, the idea just came to her in the middle of one winter’s cold night. Between the late hours at her full-time job, long spans of writer’s block and then finally a damaged beyond repair computer, she didn’t think that she would ever complete the first draft. But soon, the block lifted and her husband gifted her with a brand new laptop for Christmas. And that was all the motivation she needed to finish her greatest challenge. It was hard work and very tiring but she persevered and in February of 2015, she published the finish project. Lorine currently resides in New York with her loving husband of twelve years and the love and support of her five wonderful step-children and two spirited grandchildren."

    About the Author: "Sundari Venkatraman has authored four ebooks so far, The Runaway Bridegroom being the latest. Three of her books, namely, The Malhotra Bride; Meghna and The Runaway Bridegroom have all been self-published on Amazon under the banner of Flaming Sun. All three books are regularly seen on Amazon's Top 100 Bestsellers' Contemporary Romances list. A great fan of Mills and Boon romances over the past four decades, Sundari has always believed in 'Happily Ever Afters' and all her books promise happy endings. The Runaway Bridegroom talks about 'Child Marriage', an evil perpetrated even in the 21st century in a country like India. While a large number of the country's population live in the cities and lead modern lives, there are many who follow old customs unaware of the negative impact on the lives of the younger generation. The book is a work of fiction and of course does not preach. The author has but made an attempt to bring this ancient custom to the eyes of the modern public around the world while bringing a simple solution to the protagonists, the victims of child marriage."
