I’ve always been a complete sucker for a happily-ever-after. But at some point I remember thinking, “What comes after the happily part?” I think that’s why I’ve always been drawn to stories that focus on what happens after the two main characters realize they love each other. How do they make it work? How do they stay together? Why do they stay together? Those are some of the questions that inspired me to write the Blue Notes Series.
Each Blue Notes Series novel is a relationship-driven story that seeks to answer the question of how real men make relationships work. Each story can be read independently of the others and in any order, but all of the characters inhabit the same, classical music universe and connect in ways that are often surprising. There’s a little bit of me in each of these novels, and many of the storylines are inspired by my own experiences as a classical musician (violinist and opera singer).
If you’re looking for a change of pace from contemporary romance, you might want to check out my high fantasy, sexy pirate shifter/mermen trilogy, The Mermen of Ea. The series is complete, although I’m considering a follow-up story about two of my favorite secondary characters. -Shira

Bio: In her last incarnation, Shira was a professional opera singer, performing roles in such operas as “Tosca,” “i Pagliacci,” and “La Traviata,” among others. She’s given up TV for evenings spent with her laptop, and she never goes anywhere without a pile of unread M/M romance on her Kindle.
Shira is married with two children and two insane dogs, and when she’s not writing she is usually in a courtroom trying to make the world safer for children. When she’s not working, she can be found aboard a 36’ catamaran at the Carolina coast with her favorite sexy captain at the wheel.
