Scarlet MacKenize writes contemporary romances with sass and slow burn as well as paranormal cozy mysteries with kick-ass heroines.

Scarlet lives in a A-frame cabin in the Midwest with her partner and rambunctious dog named after a day of the week. She enjoys movie theater popcorn, cherry cider, and Jane Austen. The 2005 adaptation of Pride & Prejudice is one of her favorite movies. She will defend Love Actually until her dying day.
