Author Brotherton, Velda

Velda Brotherton has a long career in historical writing, both fiction and nonfiction. Her love of history and the west is responsible for the publication of 15 books and novels since 1994. But she's not about ready to stop there. When the mid-list crisis hit big city publishers, she turned first to writing regional nonfiction, then began to look at the growing popularity of E Books as a source for the books that continued to flow from her busy mind. Those voices simply won't shut up, and so she finds them a home.

A need to continue to write and submit her work, soon led to publishers in the growing field of E books. So she obtained a conversion of rights for her out-of-print historical romances and published all six to Kindle.Within a matter of months, she placed a western historical romance, Stone Heart's Woman, with The Wild Rose Press, an award winning publisher of both print and E books; then a mainstream paranormal, Wolf Song, was accepted by SynergE Books.

This busy writer who has co-chaired a large weekly critique group since 1988, also gives two yearly all-day workshops and mentors promising young writers, plus teaches at conferences in a four-state area. She is currently working on edits for Rowena's Hellion and A Tell Tale Stone, and isn't sure what will come next. With all those voices in her head, she's bound to let some of them out to play before long.
