All About Sally Eggert

I first began writing romance as an escape while studying to become a lawyer.  I started law school with good intentions, but felt uninspired by much of the substance of a standard legal education.  As a result, I spent far too much of my time at law school staring out the window thinking about other things.  By the time graduation rolled around, I knew that the law was not for me.  So, four days before I was scheduled to take the bar exam, I jumped ship.  Since then, I have written four novels, and toyed with two others, one of which I am actively working on now. I am a two-time Golden Heart® finalist (2009 & 2012) in single-title romantic suspense, and seem always to gravitate toward the dark side of a love story.

Before completing my law degree, I earned a bachelor’s degree in literature and foreign languages, and am grateful to be able to draw on that training now as a writer of fiction.  I live just outside of Washington, D.C. with my husband Jesse, and spend my free time playing the violin, knitting, and daydreaming without apology every single day.
