Ginger Voight

Biography

Ginger Voight is a screenwriter and bestselling author with over twenty published titles in fiction and nonfiction. She covers everything from travel to politics in nonfiction, as well as romance, paranormal, and dark, “ripped from the headlines” topics like Dirty Little Secrets.

Ginger discovered her love for writing in sixth grade, courtesy of a Halloween assignment. From then on, writing became a place of solace, reflection, and security. This was never more true than when she found herself homeless in L.A. at the age of nineteen. There, she wrote her first novel, longhand on notebook paper, while living out of her car.

In 1995, after she lost her nine-day-old son, she worked through her grief by writing the story that would eventually become The Fullerton Family Saga.

In 2011, she embarked on a new journey—to publish romance novels starring heroines who look more like the average American woman. These "Rubenesque" romances have developed a following thanks to her bestselling Groupie series. Other titles, such as the highly-rated New Adult series, Fierce, tap into the "reality-TV" preoccupation in American entertainment, which gives her contemporary stories a current, pop culture edge.

Known for writing gut-twisting angst, Ginger isn’t afraid to push the envelope with characters who are perfectly imperfect. Whether rich, poor, sweet, selfish, gay, straight, plus-size or svelte, her characters are beautifully flawed and three-dimensional. They populate her lavish fictional landscapes and teach us more about the real world in which we live simply through their interactions with each other. Ginger’s goal with every book is to give the reader a little bit more than they were expecting, told through stories they'll never forget.

Smashwords Interview

What motivated you to become an indie author?
I'm fiercely independent and a total control freak. Plus I got tired waiting for a gatekeeper to open the door. When I saw other writers finding another way up the mountain, I was completely on board trying my luck doing the same.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
1. "The Blessing Stone" by Barbara Wood. It follows the story of a stone that fell from space, and passes down through from woman to woman over history, showing how we have transformed over time and all the challenges we faced. Very layered, very dense, almost poetic in theme.

2. "Where the Red Fern Grows" by Wilson Rawls. This book was the first to make me cry, and ugly cry I did at the grand ol age of ten. It was the first book I remember feeling way down in my gut. I liked that.

3. "Six White Horses" by Janet Daily. This was another I read as a kid, and the first romance that really stood out to me. It started me down the path of falling in love book after book.

4. "The Valley of Horses" by Jean M. Auel. I liked "Clan of the Cave Bear" but I LOVED "The Valley of Horses." Such a strong feminist statement about an early human female forced to survive on her own in a hostile, harsh environment.

5. "Full Circle" by Danielle Steel. I was a huge fan back in the day, so it is hard to pin one down as a favorite. But this story is more than a romance. It has a strong element of friendship, and since my BFF is the one who introduced me to Danielle Steel's writing, it means even more to me. It's another one of those "ugly cry" books that really kick you in the gut. Plus her use of history from the turbulent 20th century as a backdrop just made it more fascinating.
