Margaret Brownley is a bestselling American author that has written mystery, suspense, and thriller, though she is best known for her romance novels above all else. Margaret’s faith frequently bleeds into her fiction.

+Biography
Margaret Brownley was a pretty devoted churchgoer from an early age. And it was around that time that her literary abilities began to take shape.

Brownley remembers always wanting to write. Once her reading habit took root, she realized that she wouldn’t be content until she attempted to reproduce some of her favorite stories.

And her dream came true pretty soon. Brownley was only eleven years old when she sat down to write her first book. She thinks it was a mystery novel. She knows she never finished it because she didn’t know how to.

That particular conundrum should have compelled her to further practice her writing abilities. But then Brownley got to eighth grade and her dreams went down the drain. For reasons she couldn’t quite explain, the author kept failing her English classes.

She did just fine with the sciences but English confounded her. And if she couldn’t pass English then it only made sense for her to abandon her writing dreams. After all, a mastery over the English language was a necessary component for any writer of substance.

So Margaret Brownley did what everyone expected her to rationally do. She tried to forget about writing. However, that proved easier said than done. The activity had become a worm which, once it dug its way into her mind, refused to let go.

It followed her around for the next several years, prodding at her, daring her to give into her passion. She finished her studies, got married and even started a family, and still, she refused to surrender to the voices egging her on.

The author imputes her eventual publishing success to various factors, one of whom was her former pastor. While Margaret Brownley had stopped indulging in her desire to produce fiction, she took opportunities to write whenever they arose.

And that is what happened at church. She was given a chance to contribute her skills to the church Newsletter. It didn’t take her pastor long to realize that the sections she wrote read like Grisham novels.

Brownley couldn’t help but inject flair and character into every line she wrote. Her pastor took note of her talent and told her that maybe she was better off writing fiction.

Brownley didn’t resist. The urge to write had hounded her for years and all her pastor had done was give her the permission to surrender to its embrace. So she sat down to write.

Her talent quickly made her a star in the realm of secular publishing. She wrote several bestsellers and even earned a few accolades along the way, this including RITA Award nominations.

But eventually, Margaret Brownley concluded that God was calling her to leave secular publishing so that she could focus on producing fiction that leaned towards the ideas and messages preached by her faith.

So Brownley did just that. She started out by writing article Christian articles. Then she made the leap to inspirational fiction. The author doesn’t believe that she is missing much by operating within the inspirational fiction market.

Brownley admits that she has always been drawn to romance. For a time, that was all she read. But even as an avid reader of secular contemporary romance novels, Brownley had a tendency to skip the sex scenes.

She read the love stories that intrigued her because she wanted to follow the interactions. She enjoyed exploring the buildup between the protagonists, the events that brought them together and continued to rock their relationship as they grew to love one another.

In other words, she only cared about the things the couple did leading up to the bedroom scenes and everything that came after. The actual bedroom scenes she was happy to skip.

So even though she wrote her fair share of steamy romance stories for Harlequin, Margaret Brownley’s transition to inspirational fiction wasn’t that hard. She was glad that she could create stories which even her grandchildren could read.

She also found that she was just as happy writing about strong, virile heroes wooing feisty, independent women in sweet tales of romance that focused on the deepening of relationships.

The author’s approach has won her a lot of fans around the world. Margaret Brownley writes both contemporary and historical fiction. She loves historical fiction because it forces her to research history, and that is an aspect of the writing process that she actually enjoys.

Brownley doesn’t have any particular sources of inspiration. Her ideas can emerge from her daily experiences as she goes through life. They can emerge from the things she sees on television and reads in the newspapers. They can also emerge from her fans, especially their reviews and comments.

+A Lady Like Sarah
Sarah Prescott and Justin Wells lived such different lives. Sarah came from a disreputable family. Her brothers spent more time teaching her how to shoot than they did showing her what it took to be a lady.

Justin was a respected clergyman in Boston. But then everything went wrong and he left his home in disgrace. He was on his way to Texas when he ran into Sarah, who was handcuffed to a dying law enforcement officer.

Now Justin and Sarah are on their way to Rocky Creek with an orphaned baby, hoping to find justice and grace.

+A Suitor for Jenny
Jenny’s parents died some years ago. And that immediately made her responsible for her sisters. Now the girls are grown which means Jenny must get them married off. That means finding them suitable husbands.

The plan was to take them to Rocky Creek in Texas where a newspaper article had said she would find a bevy of illegible bachelors. Jenny had no intention of pursuing romance herself, though.

She had a secret, one that made her certain that she was unworthy to marry. Her only purpose in life was to find suitable mates for her sisters. None of the sisters find what they expect in Rocky Creek.
