Author of the Day

L.L. Collins
When L.L. Collins isn't wrangling 25 preteens during her day job as a teacher, she writes heartfelt, emotionally charged romance novels. Books in which the heroes are not always alpha males and the heroines everything but perfect. In her book, Snared, Collins also addresses tough subjects such as mental health and foster care.
