    About "Shirl Henke"

    1. Shirl Henke

      aka Alexa Hunt.Working my way through college provided great life experiences for a novelist One problem I didn t know I was destined to write books Instead, I floundered around during and after receiving my B.A and M.A in history from the University of Missouri None of my wide variety of jobs satisfied me cashier for a loan company, public welfare caseworker, assistant circulation manager for a small daily, editor for several house organ newspapers, administrator of a federal information program for the elderly.Finally I was offered the opportunity to use my history degrees, teaching in a large urban university in the Northeast I truly enjoyed it Unfortunately, when the history requirement was dropped for incoming students, so was my instructorship After that I taught gerontology, sociology, proposal writing for social service agencies and freshman composition at the same university Further life experiences My last two years of teaching were in remedial English just the nudge I needed to take this writing thing seriously.Since childhood I ve been an avid reader, everything from Robert Heinlein s sci fi adventures to Frank Yerby s historical romantic sagas More recently I became hooked on thrillers Since childhood I had story ideas in my head, but never the epiphany to write them Okay, maybe I just didn t have the courage But there were just so many times I could explain what a verb was to a college senior before I realized that maybe writing a book might be easier I sold my first novel, a big historical romance titled GOLDEN LADY, to Warner Books in 1985 Within two years, I quit remedial comp Now I can t imagine doing anything but writing for a living In 2005 I switched over to the dark side Tor published two political thrillers, CORRUPTS ABSOLUTELY and HOMELAND SECURITY under the pseudonym Alexa Hunt I ve also written romantic suspense for Penguin Onyx and Silhouette Bombshell as Shirl Henke Since I began my career, I ve appeared on the USA TODAY bestseller list, been a RITA Finalist twice, received a BookraK Bestseller Award, and won three Career Achievement Awards, an Industry Award and three Reviewers Choice Awards from Romantic Times.My husband Jim Henke is a former cabdriver, bartender, sailor, judo instructor and English professor He s a scholarly authority on obscene slang and a master at its use, but an astonishingly understanding man who puts up with my all night writing sprees and sudden dashes to my desk to jot down bits of dialogue as dinner burns on the stove Since he took early retirement from academe, he has helped me brainstorm plots and research my novels.After four years in the U.S Air Force, our son Matt works in telecommunications and lives in an adjacent county with his brute of a cat, Max Jim and I now share our cedar house in the woods with a pair of utterly adorable tomcats, Inky and Pewter, whose destructive capacity rivals that of a medium sized thermonuclear weapon But just as life without writing would be unimaginable, so would life without cats.For therapy when I m not at the computer or off researching a new book, I cook large dinners for our extended family, putter in my garden and greenhouse, and still read voraciously When deadlines permit, I love to travel I m a member of the Author s Guild, Romance Writers of America, Missouri Romance Writers, Sisters in Crime, Novelists Inc and International Thriller WritersI wrote my first twenty two novels in longhand with a ball point pen it s hard to get good quills these days Dragged into the 21st century, I now use one of those devil machines Another troglodyte bites the dust

    1. Loved it! Jocelyn Woodbridge is a preachers daughter, but is also a niece of a Duke. Alexander Blackthorne is part Indian and son of a artisocrat. He arrives in London and rescues Jocelyn from a angry mob. They become good friends. Events have them getting a "convenience" marriage and they go back to America with the war looming between the two countries. The story follows them falling in love. Read and enjoy!


    2. This was the book that started it all. My first romance novel!! Loved it read it a couple of years ago finally got another copy after the other fell apart
