5 amazing authors from 5 Prince Publishing have come together to make this wonderful Anthology. Let's get to know them.
In 2007 – after marriage, filling her chronic entrepreneurial needs, and having five children – Bernadette began to write seriously with the goal of being published. That year she wrote 12 books. In 2009 she was contracted for her first trilogy and the published author was born. In 2011 she (being the entrepreneur that she is) opened her own publishing house, 5 Prince Publishing, and has released contemporary titles and has begun the process of taking on other authors in other genres.
Bernadette spends most of her free time driving her kids to their many events. She is also an accomplished martial artist, working her way to her second degree black belt in Tang Soo Do. An avid reader she loves to meet readers who enjoy reading contemporary romances and she always promises Happily Ever After.
In 2012 Lisa and her family relocated from England to their beloved Scotland; a place of happy holidays and memories for them. Her new location now features in all of her books.
Writing has always been something Lisa has enjoyed, although in the past it has centered on poetry and song lyrics. Some of which appear in her stories.
Since she started writing in 2012 she has loved every minute of becoming a published author.
Let's look at these 6 great stories!

Let's get to know one of the authors and their story!
1. What is your favorite part of writing? Seeing the characters’ reactions to life’s big moments.
2. Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp? The importance of family and friendship.
3. Do you recall how your interest in writing originated? It was one of those little cards in the mail for a correspondence writing class for children’s literature. I thought, “I can do that.” Except my characters always morphed into grown-ups and fell in love, so it turned out that romance was my genre.
4. Give us an insight into how your writing day/time is structured? I write during my lunch hour at work.
5. Did you learn anything from writing your book and what was it? There are as many different ways of dealing with difficult situations as there are people.6. What is the thing you struggle with the most while writing? And how do you defeat it? I struggle with getting a good daily word count because my internal editor demands I go over and over what I’ve written before moving on. It definitely makes me a slow writer. To get past that, I try to take the advice of my publisher and give myself permission to spew whatever comes out (and really, that’s where the really good parts come from). Probably the thing that helps most is a deadline—I write much faster under pressure.
A Christmas for Chloe:
His heart thumped steadily against her ear, the way hers must be thumping for Chloe, promising security that she couldn’t deliver. Somehow it felt to her like Brendan could. She knew how fragile life was, yet when they held each other, she could believe everything would always be right with the world.
