Growing up in Hawaii, it seemed only natural that Lelani would fuse her island-life background with hot, modern love stories!

Passionately married to her dream man, Lelani and her software-developer husband, Pete, have four children (five if you count the little girl dog) and consider their backyard in the Colorado Rockies paradise with its unruly grapevines, a flock of cute chickens, fruit trees, koi fish and an organic garden. In the spring months, Lelani's lilacs billow with fragrance and color.

Lelani has worked as a janitor, shopgirl at a clothing boutique in downtown Honolulu, secretary, business office manager... among other positions that keep her mind chock full of naughty ideas for stories. Writing is her favorite, most wonderful, most aggravating profession by far, and she finds a fountain of inspiration for her heroes in her husband's outrageous wit and passion for adventure. Some of the most tender or laugh out loud moments in her stories? His fault.

When not in front of her computer writing into the midnight hour (and beyond) Lelani loves to garden. Cooking luscious meals for friends and family in her small, gourmet style kitchen is one of life's greatest joys for her. Travel? Yes, please. Music? Dancing? Check, check. Karaoke? After two alcoholic drinks, she tries to slay the competition.

While she goes home to the islands every chance she gets, a rustic acre of undeveloped property in one of the Hawaiian islands is where she and her husband eventually plan to call home.

Amazon, Goodreads and Facebook have all honored my copyright and Intellectual property protections. They have blocked or removed this individual's page/book page, and/or my name associated with this item.

What's in a name? Our work and the time we spend branding our image and name in promo and marketing efforts build value. If someone is too lazy to do the work themselves, or don't wish to claim their own work in their own name, then they shouldn't be writing. They should find something they have the heart and passion for, and do that, instead.

Writing books, like any creative venture, can be a hard business. Writers invest time, money, love, sweat and tears into writing, studying and improving their craft. As writers/artists/creators, we have to accept failures, and successes. It's a tough road, and it's up to the author to get involved in groups, in person and online, to cultivate friendships, readerships, connections, platforms.

Building a brand, followers, and friendships take time, effort and a pesky thing called work, and another actual thing called caring, and giving a damn. These things cannot be faked, or imitated, by stealing someone else's identity, image, or brand.

A heartfelt shoutout, smooch and a big thank you, mahalo, gracias and miraming salamat to all who support the community and network of readers and writers by not knowingly buying stolen property.

[07-26-2015] **ATTENTION**

Dear Reader, I hope you have enjoyed browsing my site and my books! Please be aware there is another "writer" who has infringed on my copyrighted material by using my name as the author of a short story, a 16 page e-book, and by copying elements of my book covers to mislead readers into thinking they are buying a book written by me. This is FRAUD. This person is NOT authorized to use the name Lelani Black as the author on his/her title. It is copyright infringement and violates my rights as the owner and creator of a name and a brand that was established back in 2010 with the publication of my first book, Boss With Benefits.

When someone steals an author's copyright-protected name and slaps it on a copycat cover, there is intent to mislead and defraud. Chances are the story itself is stolen, too.

My e-books/audiobook and paperbacks can be found at a variety of retail outlets, and be assured if that title is on this website, it is current. It is legitimate, and was written with passion - and heart - by me, the real Lelani Black.

Thanks again for your support while I work to resolve this.
