Born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, Natale endured an average childhood with two brothers to annoy and parents to baffle. She planted her nose in a book very early in life and has yet to come up for air. The writing addiction began early as well. Natale was active on her school newspapers and literary magazines, then later she attended the University of Missouri-Columbia, earning bachelor’s degrees in English literature and magazine journalism.
She moved to Louisiana, did some technical writing and editing, married, reproduced a couple of times – and then had a real epiphany: Wouldn't it be fun to make up the stories instead of just reporting them?
She sold her first book in July 2002; it was later called FORGET PRINCE CHARMING, published by Harlequin for its Flipside line in November 2003. She published three other romantic comedies for the same line. Her fifth book, PANDORA’S BOX, was the first in a series of funny paranormal romances published by Dorchester for its Love Spell line. It was soon followed by THE DRUID MADE ME DO IT and BETWEEN A ROCK AND A HEART PLACE. Scheduled for release in the fall of 2012 are three romantic comedies she's contracted to write for Entangled Publishing.
Currently, Natale resides in lovely central Virginia with her husband, two children and a pair of misbehaving hound dogs.
