Unwrap the Romance by Authors Bernadette Marie, Lisa J. Hobman, Railyn Stone, Amy L. Gale, Susan Lohrer, and Jessica Dall: (Day 7)













5 amazing authors from 5 Prince Publishing have come together to make this wonderful Anthology. Let's get to know them.




Romance author by night, pharmacist by day, Amy Gale loves rock music

and the feel of sand between her toes.  She attended Wilkes University

where she graduated with a Doctor of Pharmacy degree. In addition to

writing, she enjoys baking, scary movies, rock concerts, and reading

books at the beach.  She lives in the lush forest of Northeastern

Pennsylvania with her husband, six cats, and golden retriever.











Bernadette Marie has been an avid writer since the early age of 13,

when she’d fill notebook after notebook with stories that she’d

share with her friends.  Her journey into novel writing started the

summer before eighth grade when her father gave her an old

typewriter.  At all times of the day and night you would find her on

the back porch penning her first work, which she would continue to

write for the next 22 years.





In 2007 – after marriage, filling her chronic entrepreneurial

needs, and having five children – Bernadette began to write

seriously with the goal of being published.  That year she wrote 12

books.  In 2009  she was contracted for her first trilogy and the

published author was born.  In 2011 she (being the entrepreneur that

she is) opened her own publishing house, 5 Prince Publishing, and

has released contemporary titles and has begun the process of taking

on other authors in other genres. 





Bernadette

spends most of her free time driving her kids to their many events.

She is also an accomplished martial artist, working her way to her

second degree black belt in Tang Soo Do.  An avid reader she loves

to meet readers who enjoy reading contemporary romances and she

always promises Happily Ever After.











 Jessica Dall finished her first novel at age 15 and been writing ever since. She is the author of such novels as Grey Areas and The Bleeding Crowd, the Broken Line Series, and

a number of short stories which have appeared in both literary

magazines and anthologies. When not writing, she works as a freelance

editor and creative writing teacher in Washington, DC.











Railyn Stone hails from the TarHeel State and is a

romantic at heart. She believes you can find romance in the simplest

aspects of life and enjoys letting her imagination run wild. Trying new

restaurants, listening to music, playing golf and writing over the top

stories about ordinary people are the hobbies she cherishes most.












 Lisa

is happily married to her soul-mate and they have a daughter and two

crazy dogs. She especially enjoys being creative and now writes almost

full time.





In 2012 Lisa and her family relocated from England

to their beloved Scotland; a place of happy holidays and memories for

them. Her new location now features in all of her books.





Writing has always been something Lisa has enjoyed, although in the past

it has centered on poetry and song lyrics. Some of which appear in her

stories.





Since she started writing in 2012 she has loved every minute of becoming a published author.














Susan Lohrer grew up all over western Canada and lives in

BC with her husband, their two children who are still at home, three

dogs, and far too many aquariums. She believes life is always better

with a healthy dose of humor.













Let's look at these 6 great stories!

Last Christmas – A The Girl Before Eve Christmas Novella




After two blissful years of marriage, Lily and Adam are going

she never expected.

Let's get to know one of the authors and their story!





Author Q&A


1.      What is your favorite part of writing? Seeing the characters’ reactions to life’s big moments.


2.      Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp? The importance of family and friendship.


3.      Do

you recall how your interest in writing originated? It was one of those

little cards in the mail for a correspondence writing class for

children’s literature. I thought, “I can do that.” Except my characters

always morphed into grown-ups and fell in love, so it turned out that

romance was my genre.


4.      Give us an insight into how your writing day/time is structured? I write during my lunch hour at work.


5.      Did

you learn anything from writing your book and what was it? There are as

many different ways of dealing with difficult situations as there are

people.

6.      What

is the thing you struggle with the most while writing? And how do you

defeat it? I struggle with getting a good daily word count because my

internal editor demands I go over and over what I’ve written before

moving on. It definitely makes me a slow writer. To get past that, I try

to take the advice of my publisher and give myself permission to spew

whatever comes out (and really, that’s where the really good parts come

from). Probably the thing that helps most is a deadline—I write much

faster under pressure.

A Christmas for Chloe:


His

heart thumped steadily against her ear, the way hers must be thumping

for Chloe, promising security that she couldn’t deliver. Somehow it felt

to her like Brendan could. She knew how fragile life was, yet when they

held each other, she could believe everything would always be right

with the world.
