Chris McFarland


Chris McFarland is making her publishing debut with Can’t Turn Away after spending most of her youth writing multiple romance novels on the backs of math worksheets and history notebooks. Born and raised in Humboldt County, Ms. McFarland learned first-hand the joys and hardships of living in a geographically secluded area. A third-generation Romance reader, she grew up watching her mother and grandmother read and catalog books, which eventually led to her becoming a book reviewer herself. She currently resides in the Willamette Valley, Oregon with her handy mailman (er, husband) and two VERY energetic and creative sons.

Smashwords Interview

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
I am NOT a morning person and I don't drink coffee, so it's usually knowing that my boys are not going to feed themselves or if they try I am going to have to clean up the mess later. Actually I manage to drag myself out of bed on most mornings to help my husband make his lunch and fix him breakfast. Yup - I am THAT wife.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I love to read. I probably read about 10 books a month. Aside from that I am a Den Leader in the local Cub Scout Pack, a volunteer for the local Little League, and a volunteer at my boys' school. Are we seeing a pattern? I also carpool and facilitate MANY playdates.
