USA TODAY bestselling author! By now you have probably discovered that there are two - or three - of me. Well, not really. I'm the Valerie Hansen who writes Christian Romance, Suspense and Historical fiction. This is my maiden name and much easier to spell and remember than my married name. I've been published since the 1980s and have over 70 books to my credit, most of which were written as Valerie Hansen. You can visit my website www.ValerieHansen.com to read excerpts and will find virtually all of my books still available through Amazon.com. MANY ARE ON KINDLE - INCLUDING TWO I HAVE REISSUED ON MY OWN! WAGES OF SIN is longer and grittier than my usual Love Inspired Historical titles. Good thing it's on Kindle or you might have trouble holding up all the pages. :) DANGEROUS DEVOTION is a romantic suspense in the style my readers are all so familiar with. I'm thrilled that having my work on Kindle allows so many of my loyal readers to continue to find my books even after they're out of print and, happily, my publisher has recently begun rereleasing previous titles, some in combination with other authors. You'll get more than one book to enjoy in the shared cover! I don't have a blog right now but I am active on Facebook and participate as a guest on others such as CraftieLadiesofRomance.blogspot. Right now I'm working to complete a multiple book contract plus more K-9 series books which are always great fun. The following is a list of the awards each of my books has won. I stopped entering contests in 2014.
