13 The Road to Happily-Ever-After

By Cookie O’Gorman Hi everyone! I have a book coming out this week called ADORKABLE, and I’m so very excited!  My nerves are basically shot through with anxiety, but the pure joy is there, too.  There’s also a sense of disbelief mixed in with all of the other emotions.

Slowing Down

Don’t get me wrong, I love summer and all the outdoorsy things that I like to indulge in—kayaking, bike riding, hiking. There’s so much fun to be had! But when summer whispers its way into fall, there’s a lot to be said for slowing down a bit, too. I love the colors of the Pacific… Read More

2 How I Stand Up To Cancer By Writing Romance Books…

May 2017. The sterile room, the grim faces, the stretching aching silence. An hour later I was walking out of hospital a very different woman to the one I was previously… Cancer.

10 Taking Chances

From an early age, I’ve always loved to write. I’d scribble stories when I was little kid, writing on anything that I could get my hands on. In high school, I wrote my first novel. I hand wrote on 500 pages of notebook paper (front and back!) because in my greenness, 500 pages seemed like… Read More
