Penny Jordan, one of Harlequin's most popular authors, sadly passed away on December 31, 2011. She leaves an outstanding legacy, having sold over 100 million books around the world.
Penny wrote a total of 187 novels for Harlequin, including the phenomenally successful A Perfect Family, To Love, Honor and Betray, The Perfect Sinner and Power Play, which hit the New York Times bestseller list.
Loved for her distinctive voice, she was successful in part because she continually broke boundaries and evolved her writing to keep up with readers' changing tastes. Publishers Weekly said about Jordan, "Women everywhere will find pieces of themselves in Jordan's characters." It is perhaps this gift for sympathetic characterisation that helps to explain her enduring appeal.
