M.J. Lowell is a Brooklyn-based writer, reader and pizza lover who started telling stories as soon as she could talk (sorry, Mom and Dad!). She enjoys falling in love, breakfast in bed, Hot Tamales candy, ice-cold Manhattans, and Pitch Perfect. Her inspirations include Meg Cabot, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Mary Stewart, Agatha Christie, J.R. Ward, Sylvia Day, and Princess Mononoke. She fantasizes about riding off into the sunset with a handsome French baron whose apartment has a bath tub and a shower, but until he appears she’s happy spending her days with her French bulldog, Coco Chanel. Reckless Games is her first novel.
