Penny Best is the pen name for an explicit romance writer who has thrown caution to the wind. This fictional persona writes hot steamy romance and historical novels.

Penny takes time out of her hectic writing and business schedule to battle the wilds of the Atlantic around her coastal-based home in the northwest of Ireland.

Penny is at her happiest when walking her trusty sheepdog. She also succumbs to the local gin, the odd hot whiskey, and has fallen passionately in love with her own rugged, Irish scuba diver. Penny’s dream is to meet Oprah Winfrey, Pierce Brosnan, and Nora Roberts and to write for the rest of her days.
