Fern Michaels grew up in Hastings, Pennsylvania, got married, and had five children before she picked up a pen to begin writing what would turn out be one best-selling romance after another. One of the most consistent bestselling romance writers of the '80s and '90s, Michaels writes mostly steamy historical romances with heavy doses of passion, seduction, and torrid adultery. Divorced from her first husband, she dedicates much of her time to philanthropic concerns, having set up the Fern Michaels Foundation, which grants scholarships to students in need. She also set up affordable pre-school and day-care centers for struggling single mothers.

Fern Michaels brings together two heartwarming contemporary romances in DREAM OF ME. In "Paint Me Rainbows," a woman hides out in a mountain retreat after she is jilted at the altar. She soon meets the retreat's owner and is shocked to find herself falling for him. In "Whisper My Name," a photographer has feelings for her boss at the magazine where she works. However, she has a secret that could turn him against her, which would ruin both her career and any chance for love.
In "Paint Me Rainbows," Jill Barton, after being jilted by her fiancT, retreats to a secluded country village where she is unable to resist the advances of a handsome artist; and in "Whisper My Name," Samantha Blakely, a professional photographer, finds her relationship with Christian Delaney shattered when his aunt leaves the bulk of her estate to her.
