I love to cook, hate to dust, live to travel, read and write! I'm honored to see my Regency romances hit #1 on bestseller lists, while my SEALs and cowboys inspire many fans to read those too! Winning awards and praise from readers, my novels are spicy romances with wit, charm and a touch of accurate history.

I'm tickled to live long (more years than you think!) and in great health. Trying to keep it that way, I pump iron, attend Jazz class once a week and take long walks with my husband and our doggie, Bert.

Join me every Wednesday at 5 EASTERN on FB when I pour tea with a fellow author pal at TEATIME WITH CERISE!

Do visit my website, http://cerisedeland.com and blog http://cerisedeland.blogspot.com. I show you pictures of my latest cooking creations and of my travels!
