Daphne du Maurier winner and Rita® finalist, Beth Yarnall, writes romantic suspense, mysteries and the occasional hilarious tweet. A storyteller since her playground days, Beth remembers her friends asking her to make up stories of how the person ‘died’ in the slumber party game Light as a Feather, Stiff as a Board, so it’s little wonder she prefers writing stories in which people meet unfortunate ends. In middle school she discovered romance novels, which inspired her to write a spoof of soap operas for the school’s newspaper. She hasn’t stopped writing since.

For a number of years, Beth made her living as a hairstylist and makeup artist and co-owned a salon. Somehow hairstylists and salons always seem to find their way into her stories. Beth lives in Orange County, California with her husband, two sons, and their rescue dog where she is hard at work on her next novel.

Beth won the 2016 Daphne du Maurier award For Excellence in Mystery/Suspense for best paranormal romance for her novel A Deep and Dark December. Her novel Atone is a 2017 Rita® award finalist.

Beth also writes erotic romance under the pen name Betty Paper.
