Bestselling and award-winning author, P.C. Zick, describes herself as a storyteller no matter what she writes. And she writes in a variety of genres, including romance, contemporary fiction, and nonfiction. She’s won various awards for her essays, columns, editorials, articles, and fiction. Currently, crafting fiction—mostly romances—occupies her time.
Many of her novels contain stories of Florida and its people and environment, which she credits as giving her a rich base for her storytelling. She says, “Florida’s quirky and abundant wildlife – both human and animal – supply my fiction with tales almost too weird to be believable.” The three novels in her Florida Fiction series explore rural, state, and global politics, address the fight between environmentalists and developers and capture the lives of the people struggling to survive it all. With touches of humor and romance, these novels trace Florida’s history, delve into current events, and imagine future impacts of both.
The novels in her Behind the Love contemporary romance series are also set in Florida. From love at first sight, to giving love a second chance to friends turning to lovers, the novels run the spectrum of the contemporary romance genre.
Ms. Zick’s Smoky Mountain Romances are all set in southwestern North Carolina and filled with sweet novellas perfect for retreating into the lives of people living in the mountains.
Her latest endeavor of sweet romances, Rivals in Love, takes readers to Chicago and the Crandall family as six siblings of a famous politician attempt to find romance. The first book in the series, Love on Trial, has just been released with Love on Board to follow in the summer.
