Deborah Shelley, the team of Shelley Mosley and Deborah Mazoyer, began writing together on a benchmarking report for city government in 1993. They soon discovered that, as much as they didn’t like benchmarking, they loved writing together. Their first book, Talk about Love, was a Holt Medallion Finalist. Their romantic comedies It’s in His Kiss, My Favorite Flavor, and One Starry Night soon followed. “Falling for You,” their Purim story in the anthology, Romancing the Holidays (a finalist for the IPPY), was featured in Booklist’s “Spotlight on Multicultural Romance.”
Their latest romantic comedy, Marriage 101, is a BookPage Notable Title, and has also been issued in Kindle and large print formats. It is available on Amazon.com.
Shelley and Deborah are currently busy at work on books number six and seven. Their romances have been translated into Danish, French, Dutch, Norwegian, Russian, and Portuguese.
Shelley is a librarian and book reviewer who also writes non-fiction books and articles. She married her high school sweetheart, David, and has a son, Andrew, and a daughter, Jessica. Deborah’s background is in building safety and architecture. She married her college sweetheart, Brian, and has one daughter, Katherine. Both Deborah and Shelley have been blessed with truly supportive families who encourage their writing; a wonderful critique group (Sandra Lagesse and Marion Ekholm); and spoiled rotten cats that object to time spent writing as time that could have been better spent devoted to them.
