Annalynne Russo is a romance writer, born and raised in beautiful San Diego, California. After earning her bachelor's degree in Spanish language and literature, she worked as a bilingual teacher and curriculum developer for ten years. One of Annalynne's passions is teaching her students the joys of reading and writing. As a child, she spent hundreds of hours immersed in books and later, learned a love of writing through the power of words. While she enjoyed great success in her career, Annalynne always felt that something was missing. She had so many stories in her head just waiting to be told, yet no time or outlet to express them.
After many late-night conversations with her husband, Annalynne finally decided that she had to take a leap of faith and concentrate full time on her writing career. As a busy wife and mother, working on this creative outlet has also given her the opportunity to spend more time with her two teenage sons. Between soccer games and swim meets, one can almost certainly find this talented, young author typing away on her laptop.
Annalynne has always been intrigued with the supernatural world of vampires and werewolves.
As such, her genre of choice is paranormal romance. Her first manuscript entitled, Irresistible Nemesis, dubuted on Halloween 2011 from Evernight Publishing. Rendezvous with Rumpelstiltskin, a naughty fairy tale, will also be released by the same publisher in March 2012.
