Although Bernie O'Shea is the driving force behind what became the Bernie's Legacy series, I never intended to write his story.
This series started out with his daughter, Marly. Simple enough.
I learned to write as a romance writer. Belonged to Romance Writers of America. Attended RWA conferences and absorbed everything my head would hold from New York Times best-selling authors.
Marly's story fit with my romance training that every book meant a man of integrity and a woman of strength would meet, fall in love while confronting their worst nightmares, and live happily ever after.
Then her seven brothers started rumbling about telling their stories also. Okay, a bit more challenging to write a man's point of view since I'm a woman. But I'd done that in previous books, so I kept learning and exploring to strengthen that storytelling aspect.
After a marathon couple years of writing, those books were completed.
Then the internal nudging started that Bernie's story should be written...
