Here she is… Ruth Seitelman

Hi, my name is Ruth Seitelman. I live in Northern New Jersey with my husband. We have three grown children and two grandchildren. With everyone on their own we remain a close family and enjoy getting together when everyone’s schedules coincide. When we gather it is certainly a lively dinner table and we wouldn’t change it for the world. I am a seasoned professional with over twenty years of writing experience but not necessarily in writing romances. No, I have been writing internal communications and marketing documents for a large corporation.

I love reading romance, all genres, and have dreamed of writing them since I was a teenager. I read stories about young women with whom I could identify. Okay, with whom I dreamed I could identify but isn’t that what romances are all about? The stories have been wonderful but I admit that I find it harder to connect with the young heroine today.

This past year, encouraged by my friends and family, I gave way to my inner muse, let my creative juices flow and began writing a paranormal romance novel with a heroine that is strong, independent and more mature as well as a story that includes the qualities I love in a romance. I know I am not alone. There are many romance readers like me. A major publisher is interested in my first book and as I patiently wait for their response I am writing the next book in the series.

When not writing I can be found reading, cooking, doing Sudoku and counted cross stitch. Together with my husband, we enjoy ballroom dancing and, with New York City close by, going to the theater. I am also beginning to like the gym, just don’t tell my husband.

I feel strongly about women’s issues and helping where I can. I am a Trustee and on the Executive Board of Shelter Our Sister (SOS), Bergen County New Jersey’s only shelter for victims of domestic violence. I am active on the public relations and technology committees. I am a frequent guest speaker at various functions around Bergen County speaking on behalf of the Shelter.

About April Dawn

Hello, my name is April Dawn. I live in California with my loving husband and a beautiful baby boy who was born in '08. I enjoy reading, travel, and music. I have always loved to read. I have read voraciously for more than twenty years now. (OOPs, guess I'm showing my age there.) I have a love of suspense, fantasy, PI and police crime novels, and so many others, but I have a real soft spot for historical romance. I think I wrote my first official romance scene when I was about fifteen or so. It consisted of a girl being taken aboard a pirate ship and falling madly for the captain. I wish I still had that writing, because it would be real fun to read what I wrote like back then. I started writing seriously in 2002, and finished my first novel that year which retained the title "Romance Novel" for more than five years. Now titled Bound by Love, and available through Breathless Press. I have since finished two other novels that were lucky enough to be named something other than "Romance Novel". My current work in progress, The Piratess, stars a female pirate named Cat. In the future, I hope to be able to bring more of my characters into the world as I work to finish and publish the other novels that I have begun. Stay tuned to meet all the pirates, gunslingers and thieves that run through my head. Hopefully you will love them as much as I do. At this time I have about fifteen novels in the works, and enjoy the lives of the characters so much that I am sure I will finish them all within the few years. I am currently in the process being published, and hope that I will have release information coming soon for some of my novels. I hope you enjoy the site, and come back to look for samples and release dates often, or perhaps just to read the blog. Feel free to sign the guestbook, or join us to get updates.
