Francesca Penn

Francesca Penn debuted her first novel, Take It, in Fall 2018, as a new author under Ladero Press.  Take It landed a #1 spot on Amazon's African-American Erotica Top 100 Paid list.  It's follow-up, Book 2 of the IT Series, Admit It, garnered its own #1 Bestseller tag on the same list!

When she is not writing, she can be found hounding her loved ones with multiple “What-if” scenarios. As a true closet romantic, she is prone to filling up her DVR with Hallmark movies. A friend once told her she’d trained the whole 20 plus years she’d known her to write romance since her nose was always in a love story.
