USA Today bestselling author Barbara Dunlop sold her first book to Harlequin in 2000. Since then, she has written more than 30 novels for Harlequin and has won a number of writing awards. She is a former member of the RWA Board of Directors and a two-time RITA award finalist.
Barbara Dunlop penned--well pencilled, actually--her first major work of fiction at the age of eight. It was entitled How The Giraffe Got His Long Neck and was released to rave reviews. Unfortunately, the print run of one copy hindered distribution. But the experience whet her appetite for celebrity and acclaim.
Three years later she became a reporter for the venerated publication, The Berry Street Times. With a circulation of eleven, this forum allowed Barbara to reach even more faithful readers.
Several years after that, she began writing romantic comedy. Barbara is now an award winning and best-selling author, writing for several Harlequin and Silhouette imprints. Her work is available in ten languages and in dozens of countries around the world.
Married to her high school sweetheart, they live on a hobby ranch in Canada's north amidst ruggedly beautiful mountains, where bears wander by their log house, and moose and deer graze in the fields.
Barbara Dunlop is a two-time Golden Heart winner. In 1999, she won the award in the Short Contemporary Series category. She won again in the same category in 2000. In 2004, she was a RITA finalist. She is a member of the Calgary Association of the Romance Writers of America and the Canadian Romance Authors' Network.
