My Story

Hello! I'm Shantal (pronounced Shawn-tall), a multi-genre sweet romance author. Thanks for stopping by!


I enjoy reading and writing in many genres as long as there is a happily-ever-after. Originally drawn to writing Medieval romance, I've since written in a variety of genres, all of them sweet and clean. A native of southern California, I moved to Utah when I was 16 and haven't looked back. Living in the foothills of an impressive mountain was the perfect place to marry my king and raise our two princes. Two little princesses, my darling granddaughters, have joined the royal ranks. When not reading, writing, or watching costume dramas or romcoms, I love gardening in the summer, skiing in the winter, and I make THE BEST Pumpkin Chocolate Chip cookies. I'm so not kidding!

I'm dedicated to bringing you heart-soaring romance, charming characters with chemistry, and sweet kisses that will steal your breath away. Find your favorite squashy chair, plop down, and open a book full of romantic adventure.
