History's working class deserve romance, too. I write happy ever afters for them.
After nearly twenty years banging my head against a wall trying to get my books traditionally published, I came to my senses and self-published my first book Clingstone in 2016. Clingstone went on to win the historical category in the 2017 I Heart Indie Contest and placed as a finalist in the 2017 Gayle Wilson Award of Excellence. The goose egg on my forehead is slowly shrinking, but the world of indie publishing has its own set of frustrations.
Namely, I'm a drop of water in a very big bucket.
But you've made it this far into my author bio, so huzzah! This drop of water has briefly floated to the top.
I swoon over the research that goes into my writing process: historically accurate slang, the asking price for a team of mules, and how long it took to travel 280 miles by train during the American Civil War are my nerdy bliss. If you admit to a similar dorky fascination with the preceding, and you're drawn to working-class heroes and heroines, then one of my American Historical romances is fluttering its eyelashes flirtatiously in your direction.
Behold, My Writing Critics: "less time writing, mom, and more time spent playing fetch!"
One of my sisters is also a writer! Her name is Christine Murphy, and she writes paranormal romance. She has several series out that are available wherever books are sold. Want more information? Visit her website by clicking here.
Ever wonder about those gorgeous couples gracing my book covers? There are plenty of sites out there to purchase romance cover images, but my go-to is Jenn LeBlanc/Illustrated Romance. I don't think she shoots stock photos anymore, but she still has a vast assortment online in which to choose from. Interested in viewing her beautiful collection of photography?
