USA Today bestselling romance author Angel Payne has been reading and writing her entire life, though her love for romances turned serious at Chapman University in Southern California, where she took departmental honors for English. She began getting a paycheck for her writing when composing record reviews for a Beverly Hills-based dance music magazine, and working in promotions at LA-based KROQ-FM. She was also a music industry PA, fashion ramp model, night club DJ, special events coordinator, tour guide, and hotel group sales manager before returning to the thing she loves the most: creating character-based romantic fiction.
Angel has written for four publishing houses, and is also independently published. She most enjoys focusing on high heat and high concepts starring memorable alpha men and the women who love them. She has numerous book series to her credit, including the Suited for Sin series, the Cimarron Saga, the Temptation Court series, the Secrets of Stone series (with Victoria Blue), the Lords of Sin historicals, and the popular WILD Boys of Special Forces series, as well as several stand-alone titles.
Angel still lives in Southern California, where she is married to her soul mate and lives on a street that looks like Brigadoon, with their awesome daughter and Lady Claire, the dog with impeccable manners. When not writing, she enjoys reading, pop culture, alt rock, cute shoes, and being active in the outdoors.
