Sophia Nash's first three novels won eight national awards including the prestigious RITA Award and a spot on the American Library Association's Top Ten Romances of the Year. Sophia was born in Switzerland, raised in France and the United States, but says her heart resides in Regency England. Her ancestor, an infamous French admiral who traded epic cannon fire with the British Royal Navy, is surely turning in his grave. Before pursuing her long held dream of writing Historicals, Sophia was an award winning television producer for CBS, a congressional speechwriter, and a nonprofit CEO. Look for Sophia's first Avon Historical A Dangerous Beauty to hit the shelves June 2007.
