A career Air Force officer, Merline Lovelace served at bases all over the world. Her numerous awards include the Defense Meritorious Service Medal, the USAF Legion of Merit with one Oak Leaf Cluster, and the Bronze Star for service in VN. When she hung up her uniform for the last time, she decided to combine her love of adventure with a flair for story-telling, basing many of her tales on her own experiences in the military. Since then she’s produced over 100 action packed sizzlers, many of which have made the USA Today bestseller lists. More than twelve million copies of her books have been printed in thirty-six countries. When she’s not tied to her keyboard, Merline enjoys reading, chasing little white balls around the fairways of Oklahoma and traveling to new and exotic locales with her husband.
