GLORIA RICHARD, author of Contemporary Single Title Romance and Middle Grade Fantasy Series. I can’t remember a time I didn’t love to read, a time I didn’t love word play, a time I didn’t love to laugh.
No matter the book, one sentence rings true for scenes that rock my writing world.
I love laughter in life, and that’s what I put on the page.
My books have tension, conflict, snark, spark, passion, quirks, twists, turns, spunk, pain, steam and Happily Ever Afters. Whoop! A spoiler?

My LIFE–A SNAPSHOT (Twirling Top Document. Tidbit Updates Planned)
When I married my husband, I married two wonderful stepchildren–a son and a daughter. I have two grandchildren I’ve loved since the day they were born, and I’m proud to be their Glowie.
My husband and I live with two yellow labs who graciously permit us to share their doghouse. You’ll see them in many pictures in SCRAPBOOK and on FACEBOOK. I can not imagine NOT having a dog in my life. Who else performs back-flips when I come home late from a writing day at STARBUCKS®? Not my hungry husband.
I grew up in Pennsylvania with four sisters (Team A) and two working parents (Team B). By the time Mom was twenty-five, she had four girls ranging in age from four to newborn. After a four-year break, my youngest sister joined the family. Looking back, I understand why Mom insisted we learn to be independent and set our goals high. “You can be anything you want to be,” she told us.
What I want to be is happy and leave a path traveled a better place because of my actions, my words, my spirit.
What I want to do is laugh and love and dance.
Thanks for visiting. Share the journey and dance with me, why don’t you?
