Rediscover romance in Aspen Ridge—a small town with an open heart.
There is nothing like spending time in the beautiful Colorado Rockies, where snow and romance are sure to find you. Once Jill Haymaker discovered her passion for writing contemporary romances filled with messages of hope and second chances, she never looked back. Two years ago, she gave up her long time career as an attorney to embark on writing full time. She loves her stories set high in the Colorado Mountains and the handsome cowboys her heroines find there. Although her characters and settings are fictional, they are based on the people and places she's experienced in her own time in the mountains. After writing eleven books in her Peakview series, she has started a new series, Aspen Ridge. If you loved Peakview, you'll soon fall in love with Aspen Ridge, too. Jill also writes stories for the popular Chicken Soup for the Soul books, where you can catch a glimpse of her real life.
Making people smile and enjoy their day motivates all the actions in my life. I write romance because of the happily ever after. I spent many years as a divorce attorney, seeing how the fairy tale and romance went wrong—sometimes very, very wrong. I refused to let it convince me that love was a bad thing, or that happily ever was only a dream. I believe in hope, and want to show a glimmer of hope to others. If I can make a difference in someone’s life, that’s truly inspiring.
I love to read and write what we are now calling seasoned romance (stories with heroes and heroines 40 years or older). I love these romances because they give us hope that it is never too late to find love. Older characters also are more interesting than their younger counterparts. They carry a lot of baggage and all have pasts to overcome. They are never one-dimensional.
We live in a society where over half of all marriages end in divorce. I was dismayed that most main stream romances focused on that first love when the characters were in their twenties—young and innocent. But what happens when those relationships fail, one partner dies, or we just don’t find the right person when we’re young? Do we accept a lifetime of loneliness? Of course not. At least, I hope we don’t.
So I write romances about those people. People given a second chance at romance and happiness. They do happen, and if I can give even one person that hope, then I’ve done my job as an author.
