Meet the Author: Nicole Castroman

  1. Nicole, I have always, always loved pirates and sea stories and so have my kids. And forbidden romance–sign us up! Now excuse me while I Google Maury Povich twins Castroman.

  2. I love the premise for your book — forbidden romance + tales at sea!!! Will totally have to have you guest blog over at the YA Buccaneers when the time comes for your launch — you’ll fit right in!

    And I’m with Bridget — must go Google you and your sister on the Maury Povich show!
