DARA FRANKLYN, the pen name of an award-winning journalist, begins her romance writing career with this first in her 5-part Jersey Shore Series.

Near the bustle of New York City, Celia’s location in Sea Drift on the New Jersey shore is a place Franklyn has invented, but is a full community with lives, loves, struggles and joys to share with readers.

She has written about many people and businesses through the years, so feels a kinship with the struggles of entrepreneurs and those looking for a loving relationship and fulfilling lives.

Franklyn now lives in Arizona with her supportive, wonderful husband of over 20 years.
