Raising a Glass to Books and the Past

on April 26, 2019

Learning a new skill can be intimidating. Change is hard. And diving into a new technical project can be daunting, especially when you know only a nominal amount about the medium. I also happen to be less than tech savvy. I once tried to update my website and crashed my email account. It was not… Read More

Lori Ann Bailey

Lori Ann Bailey

Lori Ann Bailey is a winner of the National Readers' Choice Award and Holt Medallion for Best First Book and Best Historical. She has a romantic soul and believes the best in everyone. Sappy commercials and proud mommy moments make her cry. She sobs uncontrollably and feels emotionally drained when reading sad books, so she started reading romance for the Happily Ever Afters. She was hooked. Then, the characters and scenes running around in her head as she attempted to sleep at night begged to be let out. Looking back now, her favorite class in high school was the one where a professor pulled a desk to the center of the room and told her to write two paragraphs about it and the college English class taught by a red-headed Birkenstock wearing girl, not much older than she, who introduced her to Jack Kerouac. After working in business and years spent as a stay-at-home mom she has found something in addition to her family to be passionate about, her books. When not writing, Lori enjoys time with her real-life hero and four kids or spending time walking or drinking wine with her friends.

I’ve got some questions for you. What does it mean to belong to an organization like your local Romance Writers of America chapter?

The Realities Of Writing

on March 25, 2019

I don’t know about you, but before I was an author, my idea of what authors did all day was so far removed from what really happens on a day to day basis. I will preface this by saying that I also have a full-time 9-5 job Monday through Friday on top of my writing… Read More

Fight Scenes That Make Your Heart Race

on December 11, 2018

Any novel requires a fair bit of research regardless of its genre. I write historical romance which, to do well, entails an inordinate amount of research, which I love. I also like action and adventure woven in with steamy romance and, with it, may come a myriad of fight scenes. Almost three years ago, I… Read More

Amy Jarecki

Amy Jarecki

Amy embarked on her writing journey shortly after she completed an MBA with Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, Scotland. Her first manuscripts were suspense novels and were never published. She calls them baptism by fire---lessons in learning to write fiction. These lessons, combined with several writing conferences and classes, led her to write her first published book, Boy Man Chief, which won the League of Utah Writers award for Best Manuscript, and the Spark Book Award. A lot has happened since, with some of the highlights being Rise of a Legend winning the national RONE award for Best Time Travel; hitting the Amazon Top 100 Bestseller list; and a host of other accolades. Amy enjoys the freedom of authorship and the opportunity to work creatively every day. She has lived in Australia, Bermuda and has spent extensive time in Scotland. Whenever possible, she visits the places she writes about to add vibrant realism to her stories. She loves writing Scottish historical romance, and now she's adding romantic suspense to the mix.

Did History Class Bore You?

on October 15, 2018

Lyn Cote here-History class often left out the “stuff” I find fascinating. How did events affect the people living then? History is just the story of life. I always end every historical with a Historical Note that tells the reader what was true history and what I made up within the real history. Here’s the… Read More
