Isabelle Peterson, the Author of Intoxicating Romances, is a Chicago suburban girl living in coastal Connecticut with her husband of more than twenty-five years, and a nine-pound shih tzu. She's also the mother of two incredibly smart and talented offspring, currently off at college--Isabelle living vicariously through them. Alongside being a novelist, Isabelle is also a screenplay writer working on many exciting projects. When she's not writing, Isabelle can be found creating a new cocktail or enjoying a favorite one, savoring a good glass of wine, cooking or baking. In fact, if she weren't a creative writer, she'd probably be a bartender or chef somewhere.
