Ciao, bella!

My name’s Gina, and I’m a Midwestern girl of Italian descent who wishes she lived somewhere tropical. If you’re one of those (crazy) people who love the cold and snow, more power to ya. My idea of heaven is 90-degree weather, a hammock swaying in the ocean breeze, and nature’s lullaby of crying gulls with crashing waves. Sighhhhh… Someday, I’m making that my every day reality. Until then, I’m living in my super-small hometown in southern Wisconsin with my high school sweetheart, our two angsty teenagers, and three obnoxious pets.

Growing up, I dreamed of drawing people into different worlds and let them escape reality for a few hours with my sublime acting abilities. It wasn’t until college when I realized not only was my acting not sublime, it was barely tolerable. That kind of derailed those lifelong plans I had.

 

Then my debut novel SEDUCING CINDERELLA hit the USA Today and New York Times bestseller lists in less than a month. It was like tripping over a four-leaf clover, watching the stars align, and finding a Golden Ticket all at once.Gina L. Maxwell
Ten years (and countless secretarial jobs) later, I discovered a new passion and a new way of accomplishing the same thing: writing steamy romance novels. Same dream, different medium. It was perfect! Still, I was nervous I’d end up being bad at this, too. Then my debut novel Seducing Cinderella hit the USA Today and New York Times bestseller lists in less than a month. It was like tripping over a four-leaf clover, watching the stars align, and finding a Golden Ticket all at once. This is what I was made to do. And I’ve been living my newfound dream ever since.

When I’m not reading or writing the schmexy schtuff, I spend my time losing at Scrabble (and every other game) to my hubby, doing my best to hang out with our kids before they fly the coop, and fantasizing about moving to that beach with the hammock once they do. 

If you want to have tons-o-fun and hang out with me online, make sure you join the Maxwell Mob, the world’s first organized romance mafia. It’s where my readers become my friends.

Literary love and kitten kisses,
