Meet Connie Mann

Author Connie Mann

If you love adventure, exploring exotic new places, and escaping the everyday through an exciting read, you’ve come to the right place. My books take readers on heart-pounding, suspense-filled adventures featuring strong, determined women who fight for what they believe – and for those they love. When those stories take place in exciting locales and include a tempting hero, well, so much the better.

My latest book, The Crown Conspiracy, embodies all of those ideals. Women are the heroes of the story. They’re the ones saving the day and fighting off the bad guys. They’re part of a fictional secret society called Speranza – which means HOPE – and whose spirit has been alive amongst women for centuries.
