She started reading quite early in her life. The author always found the time to write her stories, even when she was a child. She attended Boston University from where she graduated with a degree in Journalism.

Neggers worked as a freelance art and entertainment reporter before her publishing career took off. A founding member of the Romance Writers of America (New England Chapter), Neggers sold her first novel shortly after her graduation.

She initially wrote romantic suspense. Neggers would come up with ‘what if’ scenarios that would eventually spiral into thrilling tales filled with dead bodies and tense mysteries. Because her bibliography is littered with romance, it might surprise some people to learn that she actually disliked the genre.

Neggers was convinced that it was filled with formulaic stories featuring older, handsome, wealthy gentlemen sweeping young virgins off their feet. The notion of writing traditional romance made Neggers sick.

She was forced to contemplate the possibility of writing romance because her work in the romantic suspense genre had attracted so many rejections. The author was talking to her agent in the early 1980s during lunch when she suggested that Neggers change tracks by writing a traditional romance novel.

When Neggers expressed her negative opinions on the genre, the agent in question gave the author a stack of romance novels to read. By the time she finished them, the author was forced to accept that the romance genre wasn’t quite what she imagined.

Not only were the heroines older and stronger but the heroes were dark and violent. For all its limitations, the romance genre had plenty of room for the author to experiment. And that is what she did.

She sat down and penned the sorts of romance heroes and heroines she would have enjoyed reading. She had no trouble selling her manuscripts. In the years that followed, Neggers found some publishers that appreciated her romantic suspense.

She revised her earlier novels and submitted them. While the author would rather write about corpses, she has found that she also enjoys writing conventional romance. Her writing process isn’t regimented.

She would love to operate on a schedule; to write a specific number of pages for a specific number of hours each day. But she can’t. Neggers has been known to take breaks from her manuscripts for several days at a time, especially when she encounters writer’s block.

Sometimes, she pushes her way through the rough patches. But on occasion, she finds that it is much easier to leave. When she finally returns to her stories, she feels rejuvenated and more than ready to write.

Neggers has been nominated for RITA Awards. She won the RT Reviewers Choice Award in 1988.

Best Carla Neggers Books

Besides writing, the author loves to run. She also enjoys traveling. Some of Neggers’ best novels include:

The Widow: Abigail Browning lost her husband four days after their wedding. Someone shot him. It looked like a random act of violence but Abigail wasn’t convinced. Now a homicide detective, Abigail has spent seven years following false leads.

When she gets an anonymous tip, Abigail joins forces with Owen Garrison in the hopes of finally proving that Chris’s death wasn’t random. Owen is determined to help. The search-and-rescue worker tried to help Chris but he was too late. The guilt has haunted him ever since. As the pair unravels the mystery of Chris’s murder, they quickly realize that things are not quite what they seem.

Cold Ridge: The opportunity to photograph Sterling Rancourt’s home should excite Carine Winters. But all she feels is apprehension. Tyler North saved Rancourt’s life. The chances of Carine seeing the para-rescuer at Sterling’s home are quite high.

This is a problem because Tyler broke Carine’s heart when he left her at the altar months ago. Carine is forced to put her fears aside when a man dies in Rancourt’s home and Tyler’s best friend is identified as the primary suspect.

When Tyler returns from a rescue mission, he must contend with his best friend’s plight as well as a developing situation that has forced him and Carina to ally with one another.
