Stuff you never knew about ….

stack of booksReading and Writing are what I do best, but here are random facts about my life from a posting in July, 2007. What is in bold was added today.

1. From the deck of our house we see a creek named Sinclair and pronounced Sinkler, and the Boston Mountains.

2. I have no formal education beyond 12th grade, yet I have at one time or another been city editor, features writer and editor of three newspapers.

3. When we were building our home in the Ozarks we lived in a converted chicken house and bathed in the cold waters of Sinkler Creek, women first, then men.

4. I wrote three novels on a Sears electric typewriter before acquiring a computer which was actually nothing more than a word processor with a six by six inch screen.

5. None of those novels were ever published, but I’m reworking the first one, Beyond The Moon, which I finished in 1986. This book was published this month by Oghma Creative Media and is now available.

6. I met my husband when I was 14. We were high school sweethearts, and I only dated two other boys before marrying him 3 years later.

7. The Ozark National Forest is our next door neighbor and occasionally a black bear visits us.

8. I cannot think of another thing I would like to do if I could no longer write.

  1. When it comes to writing, I’m not sure what I enjoy the most: Western historical: watch for Rowena’s Hellion Oct. 24; mysteries: look for A Telltale Stone, the second in the Twist of Poe series, in April, 2015; or mainstream love stories: see Once there were Sad Songs and Beyond the Moon. Coming up is a horror, A Savage Grace, that will be released for Halloween in 2015.
  2. My favorite flower is the fragrant lilac, I enjoy movies in my spare time.

I was 71 when I wrote the above eight facts. Today I added nine and ten. Now that you’ve read a blog entirely about me, don’t you wish I’d write something about you? Well, I will. If you would like to have a post featured here, please let me know and we’ll get together on your ten favorite things. Write me at vebrotherton at gmail dot com.

About veldabrotherton

For thirty years I've been a writer. Publication of my work began in 1994 . I'm pleased to have recently settled with Oghma Creative Media as my publisher. My brand is SexyDarkGritty and that applies to my western historical romances, mysteries, women's fiction and horror novels. I recently signed a contract to write westerns again, and what fun it's been working on the first one. If I weren't writing my life wouldn't be so exciting.

    There were some surprises here, and I’ve known you for 20-plus years!

    Velda, you are such an interesting woman! And such a good and prolific writer! You were kind to give me some input about TWRP when I signed aboard recently. I just saw your new novel cover of Rowena’s Hellion and I wondered who your cover artist was and does she have a website or some examples of her work. I don’t know how it all works, but the Press wants my ideas for a cover and I know more of what I DON’T want than what I do==so far.
