Ophelia Sikes
Welcome to the Ophelia Sikes website! I'm thrilled to have you join our community. Each of the books presented here is written by me. No ghostwriters, no helpers, just my fertile imagination and lust for travel and adventure!

I write about places I know and love. I've been there. I walk the ground, breathe in the sensuality, and then bring it to life for you.

I write contemporary romantic suspense, historical romantic suspense, paranormal romantic suspense, and fantasy romantic suspense. There's something for everyone! In each series it's important to read the books in order as the storyline builds from book to book. It's fine to read each series independently of the others. My stories feature strong women and men who are worthy to be by their side. Together they overcome whatever challenges life throws at them and find joy!

Animal Crackers / Black Cat - 5/18/2018 2:43:38 AM

I want to thank everyone who has been so patient with me during my writing hiatus. A number of different things all bundled together to cause issues for me every time I tried to get back into a writing routine. I am finally getting my life organized that I can try to carve out some writing time again.

I did manage to get one thing written - that was a 5,000 word six-chapter book one in a cat-themed science fiction story. My local writing group was doing a compilation book for the 2017 holiday series, to benefit animal shelters, and I wanted to do my part. I'll be making that its own standalone series at some point, but that's low on my priority list. I have enough other series here that readers have been waiting for a long time.

I have all sorts of ideas for series after Cozumel is wrapped up - so it's not that I'm running low on ideas. I've just been incredibly busy with other things. I used to write non-stop and I haven't found any time to work on that. So I've been working to catch up on other tasks to give myself some writing time again.

So grab a copy of Animal Crackers, support animal shelters, and I will check in soon when I make progress on one of the actual series on my to-do list!

Have a great weekend :).

When Sonya's parents offered to fly her down to see the new Florida condo and go on a six-day cruise, she hesitantly agreed. After all, how bad could it be being stuck on a boat with her parents for a week?
