Like her readers, romance author Chantilly White lives in the real world, but she also knows the value of escapism. As a shy, too-sensitive girl in a scary new school, nine-year-old Chantilly discovered the priceless ability to escape her surroundings by diving into the latest Nancy Drew novel, or by taking pen in hand to write her own stories.
Reading and writing became her salvation. They've been a joy ever since, as adventuresome companions full of fun, romance, and excitement, or wellsprings of emotion.
Chantilly loves providing the same kinds of diversions to her readers—relaxing reads or brief escapes from their daily troubles. Pure Hearts ~ Sinful Pleasures is more than just her tagline. It's her promise. Whether they're looking for a sweetly fluffy romantic tale or a spicy-hot romp, a sweeping historical romance or a contemporary love story, Chantilly White's readers know when they delve into one of her stories, they will be transported to a world where love reigns supreme and everyone gets their happily-ever-after. Guaranteed.
Always a storyteller, Chantilly holds a degree in Creative Writing/English Literature from the University of California at Riverside. Now living in the Pacific Northwest with her husband, three children, and three crazy cats, she is a member of Romance Writers of America (RWA) and several local and online chapters. She serves as President for the Olympia RWA chapter in Olympia, Washington.

Aside from reading and writing, Chantilly enjoys spending time with family and friends, scrapbooking, traveling, playing the flute and piccolo, and taking long, decadent bubble baths. Watching movies or singing along to her favorite 80's rock songs always makes her smile. Sometimes she even pretends she can paint. She works hard at increasing the astronomical number of shoes in her closet, both in reality and via her gorgeous Pinterest boards.
