About the Author

Twenty years ago, AJ Adaire wrote her first lesbian romance novel just to see if she could do it. The novel occupied space on her bookshelf, unread for nearly twenty years until, one day while in a cleaning frenzy, she considered disposing of the neatly stacked but now age-yellowed pages. As she began to read the long forgotten work, she was surprised to discover that the story was enjoyable! Editing and retyping the first book provided a new sense of accomplishment and additional tales followed.

Now retired, there is all the time in the world to write. AJ lives on the east coast with her partner of thirty-two years. Because they love a challenge, they provide a loving home for two spoiled cats instead of a dog! In addition to writing, any spare time is devoted to reading, mastering new computer programs, and socializing with friends.

AJ’s debut novel, Sunset Island, was published in September 2013. It begins the Friends Series. A novelette, The Interim, (November 2013), continues the story of Ren Madison and her transition towards being able to love againAwaiting My Assignment, Book 2 of the Friends Series quickly followed in December 2013.
