I love reading connected stories in romance—and I’ve discovered I love writing them too! To me, it’s fun to catch up with characters from previous books and to anticipate when favorite secondary characters will get their stories.

My most recent connected stories are about three friends who run a party planning business called Party Queens. Each book is a stand-alone that can be enjoyed without reading the other two. The first is Gift-Wrapped in Her Wedding Dress  (November 2015); the second Crown Prince’s Chosen Bride (March 2016); and the third The Bridesmaid’s Baby Bump (July 2016).

I feel a bit sad to say goodbye to these lovely, spirited heroines and the gorgeous heroes who win their hearts. But the good thing about being a writer is I’m totally involved now in the characters for my next book!

I hope you enjoy my website. It’s always a thrill to hear from readers so please email me or chat with me on Twitter or Facebook.    ~ Kandy

    ONE THING I REALLY LOVE ABOUT BEING AN AUTHOR  is creating settings for my books. The most fun are settings that spring from my imagination but are heavily influenced by real life places I have visited. For my fictional small … Continue reading &rarr […]

  • Soundtrack to summer
    Posted by Kandy Shepherd on February 16, 2014 at 3:29 am

    THE RELENTLESS CHORUS of cicadas has been the soundtrack to summer in my part of Down Under: so blaringly loud at times we’ve had to shout at each other to be heard over it. Apparently, breeding conditions were perfect back … Continue reading &rarr […]
