Saturday, February 19, 2011 11:00 AM-1:00 PM, Luau Garden Chinese Buffet at 1890 Arden Way in Sacramento. DETAILS
February’s luncheon speaker, Kimberly Van Meter, is a romance author who started her publishing career in 2006. Currently, she writes for Harlequin Romantic Suspense and Harlequin Superromance.
An avid reader since before she can remember, Kimberly started her writing career at the age of 16 when she finished her first novel, typing late nights and early mornings on her mother’s typewriter.
She’s come a long way since that first piece of work, breaking into print December 2006 with the release of her first published novel with Harlequin Superromance.
Her books include To Catch a Killer, Trusting the Bodyguard, A Man Worth Loving, An Imperfect Match, Kids on the Doorstep and Father Material.
Kimberly will speak about switching between two genres — romantic suspense and contemporary romance — and the tightrope she walks to keep the two separate. She will also talk about what makes the two lines different, how she managed to write five books for 2011, and how a self-described pantser plots a book. Afterward, she will gladly answer questions from the audience.
Kimberly will offer copies of her latest book, Guarding the Socialite (Silhouette, December 2010) for purchase and signing. For updates, cool stuff, or to sign up for her newsletter, check out her website at www.kimberlyvanmeter.com.
