Anna Black, also known as the Empress of Romance, is a native of Chicago and the bestselling and award-winning author of the Now You Wanna Come Back series. Her desire to become a published author didn't develop until her late twenties, and she didn't take her writing seriously until several close friends and family members encouraged her to go for it. Anna currently lives in Texas with her daughter Tyra and her adorable Yorkie, Jasmine. She is hard at work on her next novel. Visit her at annablack.net.
