I made my first serious writing attempt when I was 14. I shut myself up in my bedroom one summer while obsessively working on a time travel/pirate novel set in the beloved Caribbean of my youth, but I wasn't able to hammer it out on a manual typewriter (oh yeah, I'm that old) before it was time to go back to school. The draft of that novel has long since disappeared, but the story is still simmering within, and I have high hopes of finishing the adventure one day soon.
I was born in Aruba to American parents, and I lived in Venezuela until my family returned to the United States when I was 12. I couldn't fight the global travel bug, and I joined the U.S. Air Force at 18 to "see the world." After 21 wonderful and fulfilling years traveling the world and the birth of one beautiful daughter, I pursued my dream of finally getting a college education. With a license in mental health therapy, I worked with veterans, and I continue to work on behalf of veterans. I write romantic suspense, contemporary, light paranormal/fantasy and time travel romances, and I currently have nine novels published with another one under contract. I can be contacted through my web site at http://www.bessmcbride.com. I look forward to hearing from you.
