After the Golden Heart final, she pimped herself as best she could, landed an amazing agent and sold to St. Martin's Press in a three-book deal. She is thrilled to have the prestigious Piatkus publish the series in the UK. Darynda lives in the United States in a beautiful place called the Land of Enchantment, also known as New Mexico, with her husband of more than 25 years and two beautiful sons, the Mighty, Mighty Jones Boys.
