Author: Rachel Gibson and Jennifer Bernard
Enjoy an evening of witty banter and laugh-out-loud humor as powerhouse contemporary romance writer Rachel Gibson, the New York Times bestselling author of Rescue Me, and Jennifer Bernard, author of the fabulous Bachelor Fireman series, discuss their writing and what’s so sexy about men in uniforms. Gibson’s latest, Run to You, is the tale of a tough retired Navy SEAL (and security expert) who meets his match in a woman on the run. While Bernard’s How to Tame a Wild Fireman is set in fictional Loveless, Nevada, a hotshot fireman returns home to fight a massive wildfire and ends up with sparks flying when he reconnects with his brother’s best friend.
Gibson lives in Idaho with her husband, three kids, two cats, and a dog of mysterious origin. She began her fiction career at age 16, when she ran her car into the side of a hill, retrieved the bumper, and drove to a parking lot, where she strategically scattered the car’s broken glass all about then telling her parents she’d been the victim of a hit-and-run (they believed her). She’s been making up stories ever since, although she gets paid better for them nowadays.
Bernard is a graduate of Harvard and a former news promo producer. The child of academics, she confounded her family by preferring romance novels to … well, any other books. She left big city life for true love in Alaska, where she now lives with her husband and stepdaughters. She’s no stranger to book success, as she also writes erotic novellas under a naughty secret name not to be mentioned at family gatherings.
