Are you a fan of romance? Then maybe  you know
that, writing as ALEXA SMART and ANNA GERARD, I
penned five critically acclaimed historical romances
published by Zebra and Pinnacle Books. So far, two of
them are available again as Kindle e-books,
republished under the Diane A.S. Stuckart name. I'll be
reprinting the rest of my vintage historicals for Kindle
very soon.
