Shirley Larson always wanted to be a writer. Even while she was studying music in college, she took a creative writing course…and was promptly laughed at and told she wasn’t a writer. Much later, on her husband’s urging, she quit her dead end job and sat in her college son’s empty room in front of a keyboard and wondered if she was crazy. Now, some thirty romances later, three of them historical romances, she has learned the joy…and sometimes the agony…of writing. She encourages anyone thinking of writing not to listen to naysayers. She has met many wonderful editors and readers along the way who have been very encouraging. She loves the thought that she is sharing with her readers her stories of the men and women who find their way through adversity toward a love for all time.
