I've dreamed of writing romantic fiction since I was fifteen and my older sister sneaked a copy of Kathleen Woodiwiss' Shanna to me and told me to read it. Now I write women's fiction and contemporary romance under the name Rebecca Heflin.


In case you're wondering, Rebecca Heflin is an abbreviated version of my great-great grandmother's name: Sarah Anne Rebecca Heflin Apple Smith. Whew! And you wondered why I shortened it.


When not passionately pursuing my dream, I am busy with my day-job at a large state university or running the non-profit cancer organization my husband and I founded.


I'm a member of Romance Writers of America (RWA), Florida Romance Writers, RWA Contemporary Romance, RWA Aged to Perfection Seasoned Romance Writers, and Florida Writers Association. My mountain-climbing husband and I live at sea level in sunny Florida.
