She was more interested in pursuing teaching and acting. And if those failed, she would have happily become a lawyer. The author started reading romance at the age of 11. She would sneak Harlequin novels out of her mother’s closet.

Writers like Violet Winspear introduced Thayne to the joys of the genre. It was from this experience that Thayne’s interest in storytelling was born. Though, she still hadn’t set her sights on publishing. Her mother eventually pushed her to take a journalism class in high school.

It was Thayne’s turning point. She fell in love with writing as a hobby. She became one of those rare students that actually looked forward to her creative writing assignments. She went on to study journalism in college, graduating with a degree and landing a job at a local newspaper.

Thayne was so successful as a reporter that she was promoted to the position of editor. It was quite the leap, especially when you consider the fact that Thayne was a sportswriter at the start of her career.

Journalism was an enjoyable field for the author. First of all, she enjoyed interviewing people. She quickly found that everyone had something interesting to say if you dug deep enough. Secondly, the field was so diverse. It wasn’t that uncommon for Thayne to interview country music stars and motorcycle gang members within the same week.

But eventually, her desire to tell romantic stories became all but impossible to ignore. She couldn’t stop her imagination from generating stories. Her interviews would always spark new ideas that she would jot down in her notebook.

The author is convinced that her time as a reporter prepared her for her writing journey. It taught her to work within strict deadlines and to write under pressure. By speaking to so many people, she also learned to formulate dialog, to create interactions between characters that sounded organic.

RaeAnne Thayne finally sold her first manuscript in 1995. She wrote dozens of novels in the years that followed. Over the course of her career, Thayne found that she couldn’t prevent elements of her life from creeping into her stories, though it wasn’t always obvious to her readers.

She also realized that she was always crying even as she wrote the touching scenes in her stories. She took this as a good sign because it meant that those scenes would most likely touch her readers as well.

The author has come a long way. She believes that authors today have it much easier than she did because they have so many ways to bring their stories to readers. Thayne appreciates e-books because they revitalized the interest in books at a time when people were so certain that the written word was dead.

RaeAnne Thayne Awards

Thayne has been nominated for multiple RITA Awards. She won the RT Reviewers Choice Award in 2006.

Best RaeAnne Thayne Books

Even though she enjoys what she does, the author has admitted that writing is a physically and mentally taxing undertaking. Thayne’s best novels include:

Snow Angel Cove: Eliza needed all the help she could get. Her dream job was gone and, even though her new town was small and beautiful, she was on the verge of destitution. With a little girl to care for, Eliza was desperate.

She did not expect her salvation to take the form of Aidan Caine. The tech genius came dangerously close to running her over. It did not take long for Aidan to leave the renovations of his lakeside lodge in the hands of Eliza. This was the only way to assuage his guilt

He did not expect to fall so hard for the woman and her little girl. He had spent so many years working so hard that it never occurred to him that his life was missing so much.

The Cliff House: Three women are about to embark on a new journey. You have Stella who gave up on her dreams to raise Daisy and Beatriz when their mother died. She never told them what she sacrificed. But now that they are grown, Stella is ready to reveal her secret.

Then there is Beatriz who was quite young when she got pregnant. Her marriage was rocky but it gave her a beautiful daughter. Beatriz is ready to start a new relationship with an old friend. Unfortunately, her ex-husband is back and his presence is slowly ruining everything.

Last but not least is Daisy, a prudent girl that hates risks. Her attitude changes when she meets a man that challenges her perception.
