Whitney Barbetti writes character-driven contemporary and new adult romance novels, heavy on the emotional connection. Thanks to her passion for mental health awareness, she often writes characters who suffer from some type of mental illness, in an effort to help people understand them better and to rid the stigma that surrounds those who live bravely despite their struggles.

As a Navy brat, Whitney grew up all over the country, from California to Colorado and up and down the eastern United States. She currently resides in the western United States with her husband, two children, and two ridiculous cats. Her favorite things include Taco Bell, Diet Coke, terrible reality tv, and a really good thriller novel.
