Tracy Solheim Presents
Inside the Lines: A Game Plan for Writing a Winning Sports Romance

Sports romance is one of the more popular subgenres in the industry. And it isn’t any wonder why. Is there anything hotter than an athlete? Romance readers don’t think so. But there’s more to the popularity of sports romances than just hot bodies. How do you write a compelling athlete hero your readers will want to root for? Join USA Today bestselling author, Tracy Solheim, for an overview of how you can make your sports romance novel as authentic as possible. No sweating is necessary.

USA Today bestselling author Tracy Solheim writes books with shirtless men on the cover. Some of them are actually bestsellers. The books, not the men. When she's not writing, she's practicing her curling. . . .bottles of wine, that is. She's been known to cook dinner but no more than two nights in a row. Most days, she'd rather be reading, which to her is just necessary research. She lives in the suburbs of Atlanta with her husband and a neurotic Labrador retriever. Her two adult children visit but not often enough. (See the note above about cooking.)
