Bio

Zoe brand close up before 620

Zoë Archer has always loved stories of adventure, but she didn’t love how most of the women depicted in these stories had a nasty habit of screaming, fainting, being kidnapped by the bad guys, pulling the wrong lever, falling overboard, and generally being pains in the butt. So when it came time for Zoë to write her stories of adventure and romance, she wanted to make sure that her heroines were just as kick-ass and capable as the heroes, and that the heroes loved them for it—which is exactly what she writes. From historical paranormal adventure, to steampunk, to sci-fi, to historical romance, Zoë writes confident heroines and sexy heroes in waistcoats and tall boots.

For her novels REBEL and SKIES OF GOLD, she received RITA Award nominations for Best Paranormal Romance.  Her historical romance LADY X’S COWBOY won the Book Buyers Best Award for Best Historical & Regency Romance.  SCOUNDREL also received a starred review and Pick of the Week from Publisher’s Weekly.

Zoë earned her MFA in Fiction from the University of Iowa Writers’ Workshop, but she’s lived almost her entire life in California.  She and her husband, fellow romance author Nico Rosso, currently live in Central California  When she isn’t writing, she enjoys baking, spending too much time on the Internet, and attempting to amass the world’s largest boot collection.

Zoë also writes Regency Historical Romance as Eva Leigh.
