Miriam Pace started writing in high school, sharing stories with her best friend, Sandi. Not until years did it occur to her that she could make money writing. After writing a number of books, she sold her first book in 1981. The novel, New Orleans, was released on the same day her son was born. She never stopped writing and since she joined with writing partner, Jackie Hamilton, she has gone on to write a number of books for Harlequin Kimani, Parker Publishing, and her own independent imprint, Silver Stiletto Books.
Miriam was married for 37 years to her soulmate until his death. She has two children and three grandchildren.
Jackie Hamilton, a military junior, has lived all over the world and is the only 23 year old who ran away from home and ended up in Europe for a grand adventure. She is an nonredeemable pen thief, inveterate romantic and voracious reader. She collects red lipsticks and is addicted to anything from Bath and Body Works. The biggest love in her life is her dog, Ranger.

Jackie and Miriam met in a critique group. Once Jackie recovered from what she thought was a demoralizing critique, she decided she had a lot to learn about writing and Miriam was the one to teach her. Along the way, the two decided they should collaborate. They sold their first book, and then another. Since that first book they've written nearly forty more for Genesis Books, Parker Publishing and Harlequin Kimani. They both publish independently from the J.M. Jeffries name.
