Romy Sommer

Romy Sommer

Romy Sommer always dreamed of some day living inside one of the fairy tales in her head. Now, as a 2016 finalist for the Romance Writers of America Rita Award for her novel Not a fairy tale, and as chairperson of ROSA (Romance writers Organisation of South Africa), all of Romy’s dreams have come true. She is not only a multi-published author, but, as a writing coach and teacher, she helps make other writers’ dreams come true, too.

Though Romy’s heart lies in Europe, she doesn’t cope well with the cold, so she lives in sunny South Africa, in the City of Gold, Johannesburg, where she is mom to two little princesses and a pet dragon (okay, he’s a bearded dragon, but that counts!).

She writes contemporary fairy-tale romances and historical novellas set in the 1920s.
