Colorado Romance Author Larie Brannick

I love love.  And romance.  I read it.  I write it.  Hell, I live it!  I married my high school sweetheart (after loving him since the 7th grade) six months after graduation and we haven’t looked back.

My hopeless romantic streak took me completely by surprise.  I was such a tomboy as a kid.  I couldn’t be bothered with dolls or dresses.  My world consisted of riding horses, fishing with my grandfather, doing chores on our small farm, and reading.  Always reading.

My overactive imagination was fertile ground for stories like Charlotte’s Web – reminded me of our farm and I remember wishing something special like that would happen in our barn.  James and the Giant Peach was a favorite – funny story about that, but I’ll save it for a blog one day.  While I loved getting lost in these books, I also found myself wandering off in my own stories from time to time.

At some point, my sisters’ influence started rubbing off on me and I became aware of boys.  Not as buddies or competitors in kickball, but you know…boys.  And then my sister let me read Shanna by Kathleen E. Woodiwiss.  I was a goner.  I read that book every couple of years and it’s just as wonderful now as it was the first time.  I have since branched out into other genres of romance, but the common thread of the wounded Alpha male hero and the beautiful, tough (though she might not always know it) heroine hooks me every time.

I hope you’ll join me on my own story-telling journey.  The road to publication is long and full of twists and turns and is not for the faint of heart.  It’ll be a lot more fun if I have company along the way!

I’m a Colorado girl, born and bred.  My husband and I live in a small town in the mountains.  When I’m not writing, researching, or thinking about romance, I work for two busy orthopaedic surgeons.

Our two grown sons make us proud every day.  We’re still getting used to the idea of not having any kids at home, so you’ll probably be hearing some empty-nester adventures!
