Dear Reader

Iíd always been an avid reader, but it wasnít until a fifth grade teacher assigned a class project Ė to write a book for a class lending library Ė that I realized that I could maybe write one of those stories that I loved to read.

I went home that day in the fifth grade and started writing and I havenít stopped. Through high school, college and law school I kept on writing. After my daughter was born, I decided that I had to finally try to have one of my stories published. I wanted to show my daughter that anything you wanted was possible if you were willing to work hard for it. It took me nearly eight years to get ďThe Call,Ē but when it finally happened it was amazing! I jumped up and down like a little kid once I hung up the phone.

Since then Iíve written over 50 novels/novellas and have sold over a million books. Again, amazing! I still wonder at times if itís all been real or just a really exciting dream.

I love challenging myself as a writer and have written in a number of romance genres: contemporary, paranormal, vampire suspense, romantic suspense, erotic romance, womenís fiction, and military romance. You name it and I love testing my writing chops by trying it although my heart will always remain true to the first series of my heart, The Calling is Reborn Vampire novels. Those characters have taken me through some tough times and have also brought me great joy.

Iím working on another series of my heart right now: The At the Shore Contemporary Romance series. The women in this series came to me and would not stop until I wrote their fun, tender and sensual tales. The first book in the series, One Summer Night, will be out on October 3 and itís a Romeo and Juliet tale (but with a very happy ending) of enemies who become lovers despite a decades long family feud. This is also a series of my heart because the stories are set on the Jersey Shore. I love the Shore and spend as much time there as I can. My dream is to one day one a small place close to the water!

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and find out more about me. I hope that Iíll get to know more about you and love hearing from readers via e-mail or on social media.

Caridad PiŮeiroģ is a multi-published and award-winning author whose love of the written word developed when her fifth grade teacher assigned a project Ė to write a book that would be placed in a class lending library. She has been hooked on writing ever since.

From the start, Caridadís novels have received acclaim and have helped redefine the landscape of modern romance novels. In 1999, Caridad was published by Kensington as part of Encanto, the first line of bilingual Latino romance novels. In 2000, Caridad was one of the first Latino authors featured at the launch of BookExpo Americaís Spanish Pavillion. In December 2006, Caridad helped Silhouette launch its successful Nocturne paranormal line with DEATH CALLS, one of the novels in the award-winning THE CALLING Vampire series. In addition, Caridad has appeared at BookExpo America on numerous occasions and has captained both the multicultural and vampire genre panels at the RT BookClub Conventions.

Caridadís CHICAS novels, including her seventeenth release, SOUTH BEACH CHICAS CATCH THEIR MAN from Simon & Schusterís Downtown Press, have garnered praise from both fellow authors and reviewers and are helping to make Latina fiction a vital part of the publishing mainstream.

In recognition of her work, Caridad has received various awards and honors. In 2007, a year marked by the debut of six novels from Harlequin and Pocket Books, Caridad received the Golden Apple Award Author of the Year Award from the New York City Chapter of the Romance Writers of America. Other honors that Caridad has received include the selection of DANGER CALLS and DEATH CALLS as the Top Fantasy Books of 2005 and 2006 by CATALINA magazine, the Cataromance Reviewers Choice Award for Best Nocturne in 2006 and the New Jersey Romance Writers Golden Leaf award in 2001 for Best Short Contemporary. Her other titles have received a number of nominations, such as the Harlequin Readers Choice Awards and RIO Reviewers Choice Awards. Both DANGER CALLS and SEX AND THE SOUTH BEACH CHICAS have been book club selections.

Caridadís eighteenth novel, MOON FEVER, a paranormal anthology with Maggie Shayne, Susan Sizemore and Lori Handeland, debuted in late September 2007 as #32 on the New York Times Extended Bestseller list and #123 on the USA TODAY Bestseller List. HOLIDAY WITH A VAMPIRE, a paranormal anthology with Maureen Child, made the BookScan Top 100 Adult Fiction list.

Caridadís paranormal romance, THE LOST was nominated for the 2012 RITA Award for Best Paranormal. The RITA is the Romance Writers of America top award for writing.

In 2014, Caridad participated in the Lucky 7 Bad Boys Contemporary Romance Boxed Set which debuted on the NY Times and USA Today Bestseller lists and in the Dangerous Dozen Romantic Suspense Boxed Set which debuted on the USA Today Bestseller list.

Caridad has appeared on Romance Novel Television, Fox Televisionís Good Day New York Early Edition, New Jersey Newsí Jerseyís Talking with Lee Leonard and WGN-TVís Adelante Chicago. Articles featuring Caridadís works have appeared in the New York Daily News, Catalina, RT BookClub, NJ Monthly, Star Ledger, Home Tribune News, Sun Sentinel, Variety Yahoo!
