Bria Daly

Biography

I'm a mom, wife, sister, friend, and author.
My books are available in paperback, and as eBooks. Writing is something I've always enjoyed doing, but if you ask me what my greatest accomplishment is, I'd have to say it's my children, and with very good reason (I'm a super proud mom).

About me...
Bria Daly is a pen name created from the names of the most important people in my life: my husband and my two children.
I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina and I moved to the United States when I was young. I married a U.S. military man, and my husband's career took us to wonderful places around the globe. We lived in Japan, Germany, Argentina, Brazil, Honduras, and seven U.S. states. I feel privileged to have had the opportunity to see and experience different worlds and cultures. My experiences, the people I met, and the places I lived in, have made me the person I am today, and someone who appreciates all this wonderful world has to offer.
I am also an advocate and defender of children, animals, the elderly, and the disabled. My house is always chaotic and loud. Chaos is not what I aim for, but it is what it is. Still, I don't think I'd want it any other way.
My furniture is eclectic, our diets are all different (we have 2 vegans, a vegetarian, and an omnivore - I'm one of the 2 vegans), we have 3 dogs, 3 cats, 3 cockatiels, 2 hermit crabs, and two large fish tanks with a variety of fish (today, who knows what we'll have tomorrow?). And I believe my pets are my muses because they're ALWAYS with me and wherever I go.
Thanks for giving me the opportunity to share my stories that are mostly family themed, because for me, family is what it's all about.
If I can ask for on favor, it would be to please help me reach other readers by leaving a star rating or review whenever you get a chance. Visibility in online searches is based on author ranking and those numbers are generated by reader reviews.

Wishing you and yours my very best,
Bria

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
Wow. That's a tough one. I grew up in Buenos Aires, Argentina, AND in the United States. It was a back and forth kind of thing. But then I married a military guy, and we've lived in so many wonderful places, that even though I didn't 'grow up' in those places (although I'm not sure I'm done growing up), I feel with every place to which I've been, and that every person I've met, has influenced me in one way or another. So I'll credit other places where I've lived, since I can't credit each and every person. I'm still growing up and have lived in Germany, Brazil, Japan, and Honduras. I've also done a lot of traveling in Europe, Central and South America, and in the United States. If I haven't mentioned your favorite place, I'm sure I'll add it soon. I love to travel!
When did you first start writing?
At age 37, just like Erma Bombeck.
