​Vivien Mayfair is a highly acclaimed author of sweet, clean, contemporary romance, with a central focus on the theme of books and holidays. After years of raising children as a single parent from a young age and various dismal jobs with no direction on what she wanted to do with her life, Vivien decided to indulge her passion for books by earning an MA in English before turning to writing romance full-time. Vivien always dreamed of being a writer, and has never been seen without a book in her hands. Before her novel days, she wrote homeschool curriculum, magazine articles, resumes and suspense stories, all while teaching English in college. One day, nearly twenty years after an obsession with Zebra historical romance, she picked up a western romance novel with an enticing cover. She became hooked on the genre once again and never looked back. She now creates sweet, wholesome, heartfelt romance that leaves readers feeling toasty on the inside and laughing on the outside. Her trademark sarcasm, themed holidays, and vibrant settings have gained her fans from all over. When not reading or writing, Vivien spends her time with animals, family, watching period drama movies or TV, or buying more books. Vivien resides happily in the Pacific Northwest.
