Author Biography

Joy Griffin Dent writes sweet contemporary romances as Darcy Flynn. She loves staring at the moon and stars, Gene Kelley musicals, and her mother’s gumbo. She misses Firefly and Moonlight – not necessarily in that order. Known for her irritatingly, handsome heroes and feisty heroines, her fiction is a bit of moon magic and a lot of problems mixed with a healthy portion of sweet romance. Add a dash of sizzle and a lot of sass and all that’s left is magic. Her books are available on Amazon, B&N, and iTunes in both eBook and paperback.

A native of New Orleans, Joy swapped her city roots for garden boots when she and her husband moved to their farm in Franklin, Tennessee, where Joy is surrounded by her beautiful gardens and a menagerie of living creatures–English setters and Millie Fleur chickens, being her favorite.

Although, published in the Christian non-fiction and homeschool market under her real name, it was the empty nest that turned her to writing romantic fiction – proving it’s never too late to follow your dreams.

Joy is married to health care executive, Thompson Dent and they have one son, Los Angeles based filmmaker, Roman Dent.

Rogue's Son by Darcy Flynn is a clean romance. Kit Kendall, owner of Sage Brush, the once-thriving West Texas bed and breakfast ranch, now struggles daily to keep her business afloat. Since McCabe Lodge reopened next door as a multi-million-dollar resort, she suffers one cancellation after another. Just when she thought things couldn't get any worse, Kit’s former neighbor - whom she was in love with as a teenager - returns as the new owner of that resort. Sam Dawson has returned to Sugar Creek after six years, but with a secret. Under circumstances set by his father’s will, Sam doesn't have much time to convince Kit to sell him her ranch or reveal the truth about her father that will break her heart.

Darcy Flynn did a smashing job with this romantic must-read. Kit Kendall was such a vivid and real character that it was impossible not to connect with her emotionally. Her tomboy ways were endearing. Her family pride and stubborn streak made me respect her. Sam Dawson was the definition of a cowboy. He added just the right amount of hunky spice to the story, and I have to add he was a gentleman to boot. I found him just dreamy. The plot was developed and delivered in a clear, concise manner. I enjoyed the way it played out. Even though I could guess some characters were a little bit evil, there were still some surprises as to the depths of dirty dealings to which they would stoop. Oh, those characters you can love to hate. I love them. I was very taken with Rogue's Son and look forward to reading more by this author.
