About the author (2012)

MJ Rose is a former advertising executive who used her expertise working on major accounts, such as Harlequin Books, to propel her self-published debut novel, Lip Service in to the public eye. She lives in Greenwich, CT.

The drama of Randy Susan Meyers' novels is informed by her years spent bartending, her work with violent offenders, and her years spent loving bad boys. Raised in Brooklyn, Randy now lives in Boston with her husband and is the mother of two grown daughters. She teaches writing seminars at Boston's Grub Street Writers' Center. Her debut novel, The Murderer's Daughters, an international bestseller, was chosen as a Target Club Pick and a best book choice by Elle France, Daily Candy, Goodreads, The Boston Herald, The Winnipeg Free Press, and Book Reporter, among others. Her new novel, to be published by Atria in early 2013, is a story of three women whose lives become intertwined due to their shared connection with a five-year-old girl: Tia, pregnant by her married lover, gave the baby up at birth. Juliette was unaware her husband had fathered this child, until now. And Caroline, pressured to adopt the child, never felt she could be a good mother. The Comfort of Lies is the story of the year they meet.
