Biography

Gloria Antypowich writes Contemporary Adult Fiction. In 2015 she published the Belanger Creek Ranch Series, a group of four books that can be read as standalone, but will enrich the readers experience if they are read in sequence. The series focuses on a group of people who have become as close as family because of the friendships they have created through their business relationships with the Belanger Creek Ranch.

Gloria grew up on a farm and most of her married life has been lived on a ranch. Human relationships fascinate her. Ideas for stories can be found everywhere; over-heard conversations in a public place, a couple fighting in a restaurant, a story in the news, even a chance remark in a conversation with a friend. She is enamored with the power of words and she loves to use them to paint images of characters that become so real, they feel like they could be your next door neighbor.

She does not believe that relationships are merrily “happy ever after.” Relationships require commitment, give and take, compromise and consideration for each other: in other words they take work! Each individual has their own ideas, beliefs and needs. Environment, upbringing and life experiences affect their personality and character. Nothing is simple or automatically agreeable.

Gloria is an avid reader of several different genres and listens to a wide selection of music. A good game of cards, sharing a laugh with a friend over a glass of wine and spending time with her family are a few of her favorite things to do. She loves to write and says her husband was her inspiration for the heroes in this series of books. He was a cowboy, a rancher–and a lover. Gloria lives with her husband, in the central interior of British Columbia, Canada. They are retired now, but they still have “chemistry”.

Smashwords book reviews by Gloria Antypowich

  • The Ophelia Trap on Feb. 05, 2012

    Can I give it 4 1/2 stars? I thoroughly enjoyed The Ophelia Trap. Kate Burns writing grabbed me with the first page and held me right until the end. Julia Henry is independent and strong willed. She has witnessed a death of a young woman she barely knows, but she is driven to find out what really happened. This story is full of twists and turns, a glimpse of paranormal, deceit, murder, lies and depravity and deep and painful secrets that change lives when they are revealed. I loved the way Kate Burns let the story line unfold and I didn`t foresee the way it played out until it was happening. I also enjoyed the little bits of community and history that she included in the book. For me it added to the color and rounded out the story This is a great read for anyone who enjoys a mystery, with a bit of danger and a heroine who is determined to solve it. I am looking forward to Kate Burns next book!
  • The Board Game Murders on March 29, 2012

    I enjoyed The Board Game Murders. It reminded me of one of those old English "Who Done It" movies. Charles Moneymaker and his friend and associate, John Reading are invited to spend Christmas at a friends place in the country near Boston. A paralyzing blizzard moves in and everything is set for a weekend of intrigue, mystery and murder. The plot twists and turns and you don't know until near the end who the unlikely culprit is! Of course Moneymaker and Reading solve it before the police are able to; after all, that was half the fun in the story. This is a short read, easily accomplished in an evening. It was entertaining and kept the reader guessing. I recommend it for a an evening cuddled under a blanket, with the fireplace burning. Just put your game board away first!
