Bio:

Sandra Kitt’s novels include THE COLOR OF LOVE, THE NEXT BEST THING, FOR ALL WE KNOW (to benefit St. Jude Children’s Hospital), and RSVP WITH LOVE.

Sandra was the first black writer ever to publish with Harlequin. She launched the successful Arabesque line, now under the Kimani Press imprint, and she is the recipient of two Lifetime Achievement Awards, one from Romantic Times, and the second from the New York chapter of Romance Writers of America. She has also received the Service Award from RWA.

Sandra’s first mainstream novel, THE COLOR OF LOVE, was optioned by HBO and Lifetime from a script that she wrote. SIGNIFICANT OTHERS was named among the Top 25 Romances for the 20th Century, and CLOSE ENCOUNTERS was one of the Top 10 Contemporaries for 2000. GIRLFRIENDS, an anthology from HarperCollins, was nominated for the prestigious NAACP Image Award in Fiction.
