About The Author
Former president of RWANYC & college professor, LaQuette writes unapologetically sexy & diverse characters for Sourcebooks Casablanca, Harlequin Desire, & St. Martin's Press Romance.
She crafts emotionally epic, dramatic tales that are deeply pigmented by reality's paintbrush. Her novels are filled with a unique mixture of savvy, sarcastic, & brazen characters who are confident in their right to appear on the page.
She is the 2016 Author of the Year Golden Apple Award winner & the 2016 Write Touch Readers Award winner. Writing—her escape from everyday madness— has always been a friend and source of comfort. At the age of sixteen, she read her first romance novel and realized the genre was missing something: people that looked and lived like her. As a result, her characters and settings are always designed to provide positive representations of people of color and various marginalized communities.
She loves hearing from readers and discussing the crazy characters that are running around in her head causing so much trouble. Contact her on Facebook , Twitter , her website, LaQuette.com , Amazon , and via email at LaQuette@LaQuette.com .
