Lily Dalton Author Photo-1

Lily Dalton writes Regency historical romance. She debuted her One Scandalous Season Series in September 2013 with the holiday romance, NEVER DESIRE A DUKE, which garnered a starred review from Publisher’s Weekly. Lily balances family life, a full time day job and her writing schedule by taking things one crazy day at a time. If she had to give herself a name, it would be LA VIDA LOCA MOM. In her non-loca moments, she enjoys cooking, baking, collecting vintage dishes and hanging out with family and friends. She’d love to hang out with YOU at her websiteTwitter or on Facebook

Award-winning author, Robyn DeHart, writes historical romance full of adventure, intrigue and lots of passion. When she’s not chasing after her two little girls and giving out too many cat treats to her spoiled kitties, she’s working on her next book. She also enjoys scrapbooking and organizing things into as many cute containers as she can afford, in all her extra spare time. She and her family (which includes a university professor husband) live in Central Texas in the lovely hill country. Look for her new trilogy coming soon from Entangled Scandalous: A Little Bit Wicked (fall 2012), A Little Bit Sinful (Spring 2013) and A Little Bit Scandalous (Summer 2013). Also in 2013 she’ll launch her historical romantic suspense series featuring Jack the Ripper with The Secrets of Mia Danvers (June 2013) from NAL. You can usually find her with a Diet Big Red in her hand and on her website, on Facebook and on Twitter. 

Shana Galen is the bestselling author of fast-paced adventurous Regency historicals, including the RT Reviewers’ Choice The Making of a Gentleman. Booklist says, “Galen expertly entwines espionage-flavored intrigue with sizzling passion,” and RT Bookreviews calls her “a grand mistress of the action/adventure subgenre.” She taught English at the middle and high school level off and on for eleven years. Most of those years were spent working in Houston’s inner city. Now she writes full time. She’s happily married and has a daughter who is most definitely a romance heroine in the making. Shana loves to hear from readers, so stop by her website or see what she’s up to daily on Facebook and Twitter.

Most people who know Ellie James think she’s your nice, ordinary wife and mom of two young kids. They see someone who does all that normal stuff, like grocery shopping, walking the dogs, going to baseball games, and somehow always forgetting to get the house cleaned and laundry done.What they don’t know is that more often than not, this LSU J-School alum is somewhere far, far away, in an extraordinary world, deeply embroiled in solving a riddle or puzzle or crime, testing the limits of possibility, exploring the unexplained, and holding her breath while two people fall in love.Regardless of which world Ellie’s in, she loves rain and wind and thunder and lightning; the first warm kiss of spring and the first cool whisper of fall; family, friends, and animals; dreams and happy endings; Lost and Fringe; Arcade Fire and Dave Matthews, and last but not least…warm gooey chocolate chip cookies.

Emily McKay loves to cook, bake and play with her kids. When she’s not on deadline, she also gardens, composts, follows celebrity gossip, and practices yoga. When she is on deadline, she … well, she panics, and does all of those things with more nervous energy. She lives in central Texas with her husband, two kids, zen cat, and two dogs.


 Maisey Yates is a USA Today Bestselling author of sexy, angsty, funny romances and a terrible housekeeper. When she’s not writing books, you can find her reading them. If you CAN find her beneath the massive pile of unfolded laundry. Maisey has three kids (5, 4, & 2) one husband (who is a much better housekeeper than she is) and not a single dull moment. You can find her on twitter, Facebook and her website.

  1. Am fascinated to read about all the writing mums, as I’m one myself having just self-published my first book entitled “Living the Fairy Tale”. Unfortunately I didn’t think through the self-publishing stint to realise that I have just created myself a second job!! – I have two sons; a four year old and a 9 month old baby, so life is busy enough as it is! It’s also been a huge learning curve with the whole networking, blogging, websites and everything – so thank you ladies for being an inspiration that mothers can also be writers!!!


  2. Brava to all of you for succeeding and living your dream! My blog is singlewritermomrants, and although I try to find the humor in my life, most of the time I wind up feeling inadequate as a mother and writer. I find it so very hard to do both. It’s nice to read about success stories.


  3. Jen, on behalf of all the PB Moms, we are SO honored that you enjoy our blog so much!!! Thank you!!! We’re all moms together, and it makes me feel so happy that we can meet here and CONNECT.

    Thanks for your loyalty, and we hope you keep coming back.

  4. Would you like to publish an article on Autism and fitness? I work for Suzanne Gray a nationally recognized fitness guru in Autism and fitness in Willowbrook, Illinois. Here’s an article on fitness she wrote for Autism Awareness month:


    More than half of the nation’s children with Autism are overweight. Being overweight can cause numerous problems such as: bone and joint issues as well as cardiovascular disease and diabetes. This has influenced Suzanne M Gray, a fitness expert, to create exercise programs for individuals with autism.
    Gray is the CEO of Right Fit Sport and Wellness Center in Willowbrook, IL, and has been creating fitness programs and working with individuals who have special needs for more than 30 years. She has seen how exercise improves an individuals’ motor skills, muscle tone, and socialization skills. Exercise is also beneficial in eliminating self-destructive and self- stimulating behaviors in children with Autism.
    Her latest program, “Five to Stay Alive,” consists of at-home activities recommended for children with autism to help fight obesity. They include:
    1. Around the Block. Create a neighborhood path for children to follow and have your child run this path a designated number of times per day. He/she could wear a pedometer to measure steps and calories and track progress.
    2. Raise the Bar! You’re a Star! Start with a dowel rod and raise it over head and back down. Eventually this can be substituted for weight bars.
    3. Chair Squats. This movement is required for most power moves of the lower extremities and most athletic events.
    4. Push-ups. If your child is able, have them do a designated number of push- ups every day.
    5. Jumping Jacks. Again, depending on where children are on the spectrum, will make a difference in how many they can do.
    Chart all progress on a chart and keep track of repetition and loads. Offer incentives as motivators such as stickers or a fat-free dessert.
    Kids with Autism benefit greatly from exercise. A structured routine is essential to see results. Another fitness tip is to combine music and play with exercise because it enhances the child’s sensory response while boosting independence, happiness and self-esteem. “The biggest benefit”, says Gray “is weight loss”. Be sure to check out Suzanne’s book, “101 Games and Activities for Youth with Autism”, and her DVD “Raising the Bar: Exercises for Youth and Adults with Autism”, for more information on fitness for individual with Autism.

  5. I’m new to this site and can’t read through it fast enough! Thank you for sharing your ideas and stories. I dream of being a writer and have finally started my own blog as a chance to get some practice, http://www.reinventionofmama.blogspot.com/. Two years ago I started a story and I pull it out when I have enough juice left over once the twins have gone to bed, the housework is done, the messes are cleaned and then the homework… gah! No wonder it’s taken over two years to get a quarter of the way through my story!
