Olivia Sherwood writes feel-good, happy-ever-after romances she hopes elicit smiles and laughs from all her readers. Her first novel, "Why Giraffes Have Long Necks" won the fifth grade creative writing award; that's when her love for writing bloomed. Her mother still has the original copy in the bottom drawer of her dresser.
Olivia was born and raised in Oklahoma but her heart belongs to the ocean. When she's not traveling to the beach as much as she can, she spends her time hiking the small mountains of southern Oklahoma with her two kids and goofy rescue dog, planting flowers in her garden, or doing yoga in her living room. She may also be found curled up on the couch, her two cats in the crook of her legs, reading a good book.
