About Shira Anthony

Shira Anthony is a complete sucker for a happily-ever-after, and rarely reads or writes a story without one. She’s a die-hard romantic who discovered the world of M/M romance when her good friend and fellow writer, Venona Keyes, convinced her to co-author a love story about a violinist and a conductor. In her last incarnation, Shira was a professional opera singer, performing roles in such operas as “Tosca,” “Pagliacci,” and “La Traviata,” among others. She’s given up TV for evenings spent with her laptop, and she never goes anywhere without a pile of unread M/M romance on her Kindle. Shira is married with two children and two insane dogs and when she’s not writing, she is usually in a courtroom trying to make the world safer for children. When she’s not working, she can be found aboard a 30’ catamaran at the Carolina coast with her favorite sexy captain at the wheel.
