Growing up, Carma Haley Shoemaker dreamed of majoring in the arts, living in NY City and one day dancing on Broadway. When her life changed course, she turned to the kind words of her sixth grand English teacher for inspiration: "You should be a writer." Carma then decided to hang up her dancing shoes and pick up a pen.

Carma began her career writing magazine articles for both online and print publications. A wife and mother of three, Carma is a self-confessed work-a-holic. When she’s not writing or editing, she enjoys cooking, music, dancing, and photography. A die-hard romantic, Carma is a firm believer in happy endings, but her characters must overcome many obstacles before being awarded their HEA moments – however they come.
