About Carmen DeSousa
Carmen DeSousa is an internationally bestselling author of twenty-three novels and short stories. Her paranormal romantic suspense Creatus series is a USA Today Indie Romance Bestselling Series.
Her novels share her love of the outdoors. She's hiked, kayaked, and dined across the U.S., so she can bring her stories to life. Other than locations you can feel, she concentrates on the human factor, working to bring her characters the happily ever after that seems impossible.
As most authors, Carmen blames her leap into a full-time career as a professional writer on her love of reading. She states that reading has always been an escape for her. When life was rough as a child, she could always disappear into a book. But she found something else, too... She discovered that writing out her thoughts was therapeutic. Not only could she create hope for her protagonists, but she could also do away with her antagonists—legally.
Carmen currently lives in "The Heart of Arizona" with her husband of thirty-three years and a very spoiled rescue, a cross-eyed Russian Blue, who's too cute for words.
Carmen and her husband love to experience different areas, so they move a lot. They’ve lived on both of Florida’s coasts: Cocoa Beach and Tampa Bay; Charlotte, North Carolina; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; Chicago, Illinois; Bullhead City, Arizona, the Northern Central Valley of California, and now Arizona’s high desert. They’re always looking for their next adventure, so they travel every chance they get. If you've read about a place in one of Carmen’s stories, she’s been there!
Both Carmen and her husband not only write, but also love to read outside—or a coffee shop if it's raining. And if the weather is really nice, they enjoy kayaking and hiking. Carmen says they rarely spend their days off at a movie theater or the mall. In fact, she hates shopping, and her husband would rather do anything than take her to a movie when she’s already read the book.
