Rachel Brimble: All Romance–All The Time!
I live with my fantastic husband, our two young daughters in a small market town near the famous Georgian City of Bath. Having always ‘played’ with writing, I didn’t seriously sit down and write toward publication until I became pregnant with my second daughter – then I told myself to get my butt in the chair and get on with it before she grows up and I’m forced to get a real job!
Lots of short stories followed as did lots of rejections! I took a few distance learning courses, joined some online writers groups and basically, learned my craft. Finally deciding short stories weren’t working for me (they are an art form in themselves!), in 2006 I decided to embark on my first novel and voila Searching For Sophie was born! Since then, my other books have followed each year.
And when I’m not writing? You’ll find me with my head in a book or walking the beautiful English countryside with my family. And in the evening? Well, a well-deserved glass of wine is never, ever refused.
Catching Up With Rachel
As this is my first time posting, I thought I’d kick off by giving you a little bit of my writing journey following my bio. Since my first book was published in 2007, I have been very fortunate to continue to write and continue to be published. Since 2012, I’ve written mainstream romance and romantic suspense for Harlequin Superromance. All the books are part of my Templeton Cove Stories series and are linked through the setting of Templeton Cove, a fictional UK seaside town and the secondary characters. Fear not if you are behind, because all the stories can be read stand-alone.
I also write Victorian romance for eKensington/Lyrical Press. My latest Victorian release is What A Woman Desires and I am thrilled with the reviews and sales so far.
My upcoming release, Her Hometown Redemption, is book five in my Templeton Cove series and is out September 1st 2015. This is a reunion story between my heroine, Tanya Todd and my hero, successful lawyer, Liam Browne. Both characters appeared in the third book, What Belongs To Her and they soon demanded a story of their own.
So that’s me in a nutshell! I look forward to hearing from LLM Cafe’s visitors! Feel free to follow me on Twitter: https://twitter.com/RachelBrimble
