Early and Personal Life

Born and raised in Pennsylvania in the United States of America, the author to be Emma Crane was born and raised in the area of of Erie, which is a small town besides Lake Erie. Growing up with a keen passion for the written word, she would constantly be writing, focusing on characters set in space, largely consisting of teenagers and their love-lives. This would transform and develop over the years, evolving into what her adult career would become, as she started to look towards cowboys, bringing with her the same romantic themes ideas that she had before.

Attending high-school, she would constantly be turning back to her primary interest of writing, focusing on building her craft and her style. Honing and refining her voice that was to be, she would build upon her material, taking in the sweeping landscapes of Eerie, putting them back into her work. Seeking inspiration from the world around her she would allow he upbringing and experiences to become material for her work, with them constantly informing her and her material.

With a lot more novels to come yet she has built herself a strong writing career off the back of her appreciation for the art-form, something which shows clearly in her work. Living with her husband Jim they now have three grown children along with two dogs called Umo and Apollo, as they all like to take hikes in the mountains as she looks for inspiration for her next upcoming novel, all whilst maintaining a variety of other interests such as crocheting, all of which feed back into her work. This is something that’s not going to be stopping anytime soon either, as there’s a lot more novels planned on the horizon, something that will continue for many years to come.

Writing Career

Bringing out her first novel back in 2012 she made her debut onto the literary scene with the novel ‘A Town Called Valentine’, a book which not only set-up her writing career, but the highly popular ‘Valentine Valley’ series as well. Running for over seven books and counting this series would create the large portion of her career, allowing many to become invested in both her and her writing. There would also be an omnibus edition, along with a collection of short-stories titled ‘The Christmas Cabin’ in 2013, along with her ‘Fairfield Orchard’ franchise consisting of two titles so far.

Still writing to this very day she has a lot more to come yet, as she also maintains the pen-name of Gayle Callen, under which she puts out USA Today bestselling novels. All of this has lead to her becoming one of the most prolific authors in the industry to date, with her being a highly vocal presence currently working in the industry. This is something that’s expected to continue on into the foreseeable future, with a lot more titles to come yet as her writing career grows from strength-to-strength.

The Cowboy of Valentine Valley

Brought out in 2014 on the 28th of January, this was set to be the third title in the ongoing ‘Valentine Valley’ series of novels, as it picked up from where the last book left off. Carrying on in much the same vein as before, it manages to provide readers with more of the same, whilst simultaneously providing them with something new in the process. Released through the Avon publishing label, it also manages to develop many of the themes and ideas that came before, building upon them and furthering their foundations.

Set in the heart of Valentine Valley, this particular focuses on the cowboy Josh Thalberg as he finds himself sharing a late-night kiss with one Whitney Winslow. The problem is that this shouldn’t have happened, as they soon find themselves yearning for each other, he the rural cowboy and her the former Hollywood bad girl. Using his highly luxurious leather-work in her upscale lingerie shop called ‘Leather and Lace’ she hopes that she can keep their relationship strictly professional. Will they become anything more? Can they ever get over the kiss? What will become of the cowboy of Valentine Valley?

Ever After at Sweetheart Ranch

Initially brought out in 2015 on the 28th of April just one year after the third title in the franchise was released, this marked the sixth novel in the ongoing ‘Valentine Valley’ series of novels. Continuing in much the same manner as before, this provides another love story from the idyllic region of Valentine Valley, taking the readers back into the heart-warming and familiar region set-up in the previous titles. Providing a new story, though, it does work at bringing new ideas and themes to the table, allowing different ideas to develop, thus establishing the world even further.

Starting out with the seemingly unassuming math teacher of Valentine Valley Lyndsay De Luca, it sees her breaking out of her shell somewhat and getting a romance novel published one summer. Not only that, but now she must hide the secret that the current hunky cowboy she is dating, Will Sweet, is none other than the primary inspiration for the leading love interest in her novel. With her fantasy now having become a reality she finds that she must overcome his problematic past, as he’s still guarded following a traumatic accident involving his previous love. Will she help him overcome the trauma of the past? Can they ever be an item? What will happen and can they live happily ever after at Sweetheart Ranch?
