Author Bio


Who is H.M. Shander? 

H.M. Shander was born and raised in Edmonton, AB.

Married to an amazing man, and the proud mother of two teenaged kids, her life is blessed beyond words. Thanks to the wild success of the romance anthology Romantically Ever After, she has achieved USA TODAY bestseller status.

Having enjoyed creative writing ever since she drafted her first novel at 14 on many sheets of looseleaf paper, tied together with ribbon - (no, it will never be published), she has enjoyed the way writing allows her to unwind, and create memorable characters.

With the success of the Cheshire Bay series (Return to Cheshire Bay won a 2021 Bronze Medal in a Readers Choice Award), she's expanded it a 10 book series (the first is free).


With an exciting 2024 starting up, you can expect to read her latest second chance, small town romance - LIVING LA VIDA MOCHA - it is available in Kindle Unlimited. Watch for another exciting edition into the Coffee Loft world with IT'S A BREWTIFUL DAY releasing on October 17th in KU (Apple/Kobo/B&N release date will likely be two weeks ahead), and a sweet novella SNOW, SIPS, and a SMATTERING of STARS will be part of the Gingerbread Kisses anthology coming this November 1st.
