About the Author

Natalie in a white shirt in front of a bookshelf full of her books.

Natalie J. Damschroder hasn’t done anything remotely worth documenting in a bio in a very long time, unless you count making up the romantic adventures that her characters live out in her books. She loves combining end-of-the-world stakes with the relationships that make those stakes personal. Love with a Shot of Adrenaline has infused nearly every story she’s published. Whether you like quick reads you can finish in a day or sinking into longer books, you’ll find something to satisfy your craving for action, romance, and happy endings. She also writes paranormal young adult romance as NJ Damschroder, where all of the same elements apply.

Besides her dozens of published books, what Natalie is most proud of is her family. She and her husband have been married over 30 years and still have the kind of partnership she makes her characters fight for every day. They’ve raised two awesome kids now living their own fulfilling lives, which you would think would mean she’d write more books faster. But she’s enjoying reading, relaxing with good TV, and sleeping too much to give any of that up. In the fall and winter, almost nothing will keep her from cheering for her New England Patriots, even though they don’t win as much anymore. She loves to hear from readers, so don’t hesitate to e-mail her!

AI (Machine Learning) Note from Natalie:

Given everything that’s been happening in the past year or so, it seems smart to tell you that I do not use machine learning (commonly referred to as AI, for artificial intelligence) in my writing. Every word comes from me. I currently don’t knowingly use AI tools for anything else, including writing back cover copy or creating marketing materials. My cover artist is a person (I’m pretty sure, though we haven’t met in real life). If this ever changes, I’ll be transparent about it, so you can always make informed decisions about my work. Thank you!
