This week, I have the pleasure of introducing one of our favorite romance authors, Rebecca Connolly. She writes Regency, historical, and some contemporary/sports romances. Check out her full list of books on her website listed below.
"I was born in California, but grew up in the Midwest, specifically in Ohio and Indiana. I consider myself a Midwest girl, with all of the wholesome sweetness and "girl next door" attributes that come along with that. According to home videos, I have always loved to make up stories. There was nothing simple about a game of House, and every game involving imagination had some sort of plot, whether it was fighting off dragons or being a school teacher. My elementary school had a little book press for stories by students, and I had so many little books printed [but very poorly illustrated!] that I could fill a box at home. I've always been a bookworm, and my grandma would send me more books almost every month so I would never run out. Book Fairs were like a carnival to me, and libraries my happy place. My creative writing professor in college once said, "In order to be a great writer, you must be a great reader." That gave me hope, since I had been reading my entire life!I got my bachelor's degree from Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, which is where I completed my first novel, and started collecting the ideas for several others! I worked for a few years after that, dabbling in writing and reading and other activities, and then I went to get my master's degree from West Virginia University. I came back to the Midwest after all of that, and I have no desire to leave it again!"
