We are Women Unplugged — six authors, six opinions, tons of fun!
Christy Hayes lives outside Atlanta, Georgia, with her husband, their two children and two dogs. She has a journalism degree from the University of Georgia (Go Dawgs!) and is a member of Romance Writers of America and the Women’s Fiction Chapter of Romance Writers of America. She’s been writing seriously since 2004 and made the decision to indie publish in 2011.
Christy writes romance and romantic women’s fiction from her little basement office in the South. She’s cooked up all kinds of trouble for her flawed characters when she’s not driving her kids to one sporting event or another or walking her pesky rescue mutts through the neighborhood.
Dianne Venetta lives in Central Florida with her husband, two children and part-time Yellow Lab–Cody-body!
When not whacking away at her keyboard crafting her next novel you’ll find her in their organic garden chasing grasshoppers and plucking hornworms all while crafting wild analogies between kids and plants and men. Definitely men. A girl’s gotta have fun, right?

Kimberly S. Belle grew up in Eastern Tennessee, in a small town nestled in the foothills of the Appalachians. Her four years at Agnes Scott College in Atlanta were a quick pit stop on her quest to see the world. After a bit of wandering she landed in the Netherlands, where she lived among the windmills and tulips for more than a decade. But the draw of Dixie was too strong. Kimberly returned and put down roots – permanent ones this time – in Atlanta, though she always makes sure to keep her passport current.
