Bess McBride

Bess McBride made her first serious writing attempt when she was 14. She shut herself up in her bedroom one summer while obsessively working on a time travel/pirate novel set in the beloved Caribbean of her youth, but she wasn’t able to hammer it out on a manual typewriter (oh yeah, she’s that old) before it was time to go back to school. The draft of that novel has long since disappeared, but the story is still simmering within her, and she will get it written one day soon. 
Bess was born in Aruba to American parents and lived in Venezuela until her family returned to the United States when she was 12. She couldn’t fight the global travel bug within her and joined the U.S. Air Force at 18 to “see the world.” After 21 wonderful and fulfilling years traveling the world and gaining one beautiful daughter, she pursued her dream of finally getting a college education. Armed and overeducated, the gypsy in her has taken over once again, and she is now embarking on a full-time life in a recreational vehicle as she continues to look for new adventures and place settings for her writing. The Wild Rose Press has helped her fulfill a lifelong dream of writing romances.

A Note From Bess McBride

Bess McBride, "Romances for the Shy Girl in All of Us"

Hi all and welcome to my Author Page here at Manic Readers.  I write in several different genres:  contemporary, light paranormal/fantasy/historical (time travels) and romantic suspense.  You'll find my works romantic and sensual but fade to black.  That's what I read and that's what I like to write.  Please stop by my web site and drop me an e-mail.  I'd love to hear from you.

I'm an avid traveler and have been traveling all my life, so I like to set my stories in the places I've been.  My formula for writing is:  Setting plus hero/heroine plus plot equals happy ending!

Again, feel free to drop me a line.  I love to hear from authors and readers.
