Annette Broadrick was born on November 26. Her mother read to her until she read to herself. From that time on, books became her closestcompanions and teachers. She was an only child until the middle of her 16thyear when her sister was born.

She married immediately after high school graduation in the middle of her18th year. Twelve months later she had her first son. She ended up havingfour sons in seven years. People with children do not need to explain whattheir life was like for the next 20 years. Those people without children donot want to hear about it. Early on, she became a secretary to supplementthe family income. Eventually she became a legal secretary and for 25 yearsshe worked for attorneys in Arizona, Texas, Illinois, and Oregon.

Her love of books followed her throughout her career as a mother and asecretary. By the time her youngest son graduated from high school shedecided to write a book of her own. After writing in a spiral notebook forsix months, she rented a typewriter and rewrote the book, showed it to acreative writing teacher, who was also a friend, listened to her critiqueand rewrote her story. Next she showed it to another avid romance reader andcarefully listened to her critique. She rewrote her story once again. Nextshe mailed the manuscript to the Silhouette office in New York. Two monthslater she received a phone call asking if she'd be willing to do extensiverevisions, including cutting one hundred pages. She said yes. This was inJanuary 1984. By the time the book, Circumstantial Evidence, came out inNovember of that year, she had sold a total of six books.

Since October 1984 Annette has supported herself with her writing. Hercareer as a published author has also supported her reading habit and in thepast five years she has managed to establish a quiet life in the HillCountry of central Texas that soothes as well as stimulates her. She hopesto continue writing the kind of books that readers enjoy.
