Margaret Desmond has always loved all things romantic. After reading "Gone with the Wind" at the age of ten, she was inspired to take her own pen to paper. Epic tomes set in faraway lands gradually evolved into modern day love stories. She endeavors to find a new twist in the telling, but the age-old story of boy meets girl will forever be at the heart of her writing. The town of King's Valley in Margaret's King's Valley Romance series is "loosely" based on her hometown of Petaluma, California, as well as the northern California towns of Tomales and Sebastopol. A 5th-generationCalifornian, Margaret (a.k.a. Maggie) now resides in the beautiful Flathead Valley in northwest Montana. Her next book series will be set in that location.
Margaret Desmond's books are clean, sweet (but not sugary) Romances with a capital R. Her writing is inspired by a delightful mix of her favorite romance authors: a smidgen of Debbie Macomber, a pinch of Rosamunde Pilcher, and a dash of Betty Neels. If you like any of these authors, you're sure to like the characters of King's Valley.
