BJ Phillips

BJ writes romance novels set in her home state of Florida. She was raised in the South, spending most of her growing up years in Florida either barefoot or in flipflops. A voracious reader, she also began writing early on. She wrote everything from poetry to short stories, most of which never saw the light of day outside her notebooks.


She spent a tour in the Army, then went on to work for the government as a civilian employee while she went to college and raised a daughter. She kept writing off and on, but never did anything with the things she wrote until she decided she had to just take the plunge and write that book, whether or not it was ever published. Fortunately, the first publisher she sent it to wanted it. Hurricane Season was published in June 2016. The next book, Snowbird Season, is underway and more are being plotted.  


BJ lives with her partner and their two four legged girls Maya (a Yorkie) and Piper (a Chihuahua) in central Florida.





Hurricane Season

Shawn Richards (aka S.K. Richardson) is a romance author who’s done with love. She’s had her heart broken badly again and just can’t take it anymore. Ditching San Francisco, she moves back home to Southwest Florida to get her feet back under her and finish her latest novel.

Carrie Alexander is a huge S.K. Richardson fan, but has no idea what she looks like. She does, however, like the looks of the new neighbor down the street, Shawn Richards.

Drawn to each other at first as friends, Shawn still tries to keep some distance in spite of what she’s beginning to feel for Carrie. Carrie isn’t the kind of woman you just have a fun night with and then move on. Carrie’s the kind you fall in love with and make love to, and live happily ever after with—but she just can’t let herself trust her heart yet. After all, the last time she fell for one of her fans, it ended very badly.

Carrie is looking for her own ‘happy ever after’ just like in all those romance novels she reads.  Shawn could be the one, or maybe Carrie’s fooling herself and there’s really no such thing as all that romantic stuff in Shawn’s books.

Shawn is afraid she can’t deliver on that ‘happy ever after’ she knows Carrie wants—and she wants, too, truth be told. Destiny might have given them a push when Carrie tripped at the local grocery store and literally fell into Shawn’s arms.  But fear could cost Shawn the woman of her dreams.
