Rhyme Devereux is an adult romance writer. Born and raised in Maryland, she is happily married with a handful of children, and two dogs living in Pennsylvania. After turning forty-something, Rhyme realized that she's a late bloomer (and wears that label with pride). Her passion for reading transitioned into writing romance books to share with other readers. When she's not writing or daydreaming about characters, and plot twists, you can find Rhyme being a housekeeper, tutor, chef, referee, loving mother, and wife. And if she has some spare time, you will catch her lying in bed wearing holey pajamas, while reading a good romance or mystery-thriller. Thanks for wanting to get to know Rhyme better. But by far, her books are much more exciting.
- She's a pantser. Rhyme prefers to write on her own terms.
- Rhyme went to college to become a lawyer. Then switched careers and wanted to be a city cop. Finally she settled down, got seriou,s and worked with special needs children, and then a preschool teacher. Finally, Rhyme ended up being a late bloomer romance author. So with all that experience she has a degree in "Common Sense" *wink*
- Her debut book AT YOUR MERCY almost didn't get published. Rhyme was nervous about someone hating my book. Then she put my big girl panties on and clicked 'Publish'.
- She's a clean freak. Constantly washing her hands.
- Rhyme became a mom at 19 yrs. old. Now that child is an Aerospace Engineer. She has no doubt that her other children will be successful as well.
- She loves to travel abroad.
- Her favorite color is purple. Not lavender or violet...Purple.
- Rhyme loves Italian food!
- She fell in love with reading mystery/thriller books at a young age, but when puberty hit, Rhyme became an avid reader of romance fiction.
