Colleen Clay


Colleen Clay is a pen name for Verna Clay. I chose to use this name for my debut YA novel, "Fragile Hearts," because Verna Clay is associated mostly with my contemporary and historical westerns.

As for my own personal taste in leading characters, I prefer my heroes and heroines to be utterly mismatched. To me, a hot guy and a glamorous gal getting together is boring. As a result, one of my leads is neither popular nor physically gifted. Both characters, however, are multifaceted, sometimes hurting, but always honorable by the end of the story. My storyline contains obstacles intended to build character in my characters.
