Dari LaRoche

Dari LaRoche writes contemporary romance and romantic suspense that will keep you reading long after the witching hour has passed. Her everyday heroes face challenges requiring strength of character, perseverance, and an ever ready dose of laughter to find their way to love and happiness. Her Rescue Series takes place in the Pacific Northwest and the Caribbean, settings inspired by LaRoche’s love for travel and passion for safeguarding the natural environment.

Dari spends most of her days writing and researching her stories, constantly looking for a way to deliver an entertaining read in which her readers feel they are a part of the journey with her. Travel is an integral part of her life. She always keeps a little notebook and her cellphone handy to record tidbits that she will use sometime in the future—no interesting detail is too small to be considered in either a novel or a short story. Her love for the water, above and below the surface, and for tromping around the ruins of castles and forts, fills any bits of time when she isn’t at home watching the birds and critters in her garden, or reading, writing, and enjoying her family and friends.
