Romance author Theresa Troutman lives in Pennsylvania with her husband and their dog, Niko. A voracious reader with a love of theater and traveling, she published her first novel, My Secret Summer, in October of 2013. Featuring a pair of misfit adolescents who become friends and fall for one another, My Secret Summer is an emotional coming-of-age story about the thrill of forbidden love. Troutman’s second novel, A Special Connection, was released in early 2014 and explores the intimate relationships between three friends.
In April of 2014, Troutman published Life’s What You Make It, the first in her Love’s Great Adventure trilogy. Inspired by Evelyn Waugh’s Brideshead Revisited, which Troutman read when she was 16, the series follows British playboy Sebastian Irons, who struggles to find discipline and purpose after being banished to America by his domineering mother, and his tutor Tess Hamilton. As their once-platonic relationship gradually evolves into something more, together they embark on a journey of passion, introspection and self-discovery.
