About the author

Multi-published author Mary Sullivan writes heartwarming, small-town romance. Her first novel, No Ordinary Cowboy, was a Romance Writers of America Golden Heart nominee. Her books have won awards and glowing reviews. Writing a book is much like putting together a jigsaw puzzle without the final image. Mary indulges her passion for puzzles—particularly her daily cryptic crossword and putting together real jigsaw puzzles without the box—in her hometown of Toronto.
