Olivia Dade

Olivia Dade grew up an undeniable nerd, prone to ignoring the world around her as she read any book she could find. Her favourites, though, were always, always romances. As an adult, she earned an M.A. in American history and worked in a variety of jobs that required the donning of actual pants: Colonial Williamsburg interpreter, high school teacher, academic tutor, and (of course) librarian. Now, however, she has finally achieved her lifelong goal of wearing pajamas all day as a hermit-like writer and enthusiastic hag. She currently lives outside Stockholm with her patient Swedish husband, their whip-smart daughter, and the family's ever-burgeoning collection of books.

Olivia Dade recommends
Wild Life (2024)
Opal Wei
"Wei is a miracle-worker. Wild Life somehow manages to combine a delightful homage to Bringing Up Baby's screwball antics with a thoroughly modern romance - one remarkable for its warm intelligence, wit, and complexity. Zoey and Davy are an incredibly charming central couple."
Codename Charming (2023)
Lucy Parker
"Lucy Parker's books are marvels of wit and warmth and empathy, and Battle Royal is no exception. It's as delicious as the cakes baked by Sylvie and Dominic, from first page to last. I swooned, laughed, wept, and loved the story wholeheartedly, and I can't wait to reread it ASAP."
Role Playing (2023)
Cathy Yardley
"Role Playing features one of the most endearing couples I've read in a long, long time. Aiden's kindness, warmth, and patience make him the sweetest cinnamon roll hero possible, while Maggie is the cranky, fiercely loyal heroine of my dreams. Yardley doesn't shy away from difficult family and friend dynamics, but that only makes the way Maggie and Aiden help and defend one another all the more satisfying. And the earrings-removal moment at the wedding reception? Absolute, gleeful perfection."
