Conrad Lovelle


I spent my early years in a small town rich with cultural diversity. In difficult times during my childhood I learned to escape through reading and fantasy. Eventually the storybook readings merged with friends' accounts of far-off lands, and a Romantic was born. My taste outgrew the confinement and simplicity of the small isolated town and at age 15 I answered the call of my wanderlust, leaving home with just $12 in my pocket to hitch-hike 1000 miles to the nearest West-coast city.

Those seeds of my childhood led me to many cultures and into many homes and hearts along the way. Writing romantically (sometimes with impish delight) to express my own feelings and experiences was an early passion, and throughout the years I have written about love and life's processes; about events that have occurred and encounters that have endured, and those that have faded away.

Smashwords book reviews by Conrad Lovelle

    Wow, an article about ebooking that actually delivers what it says/implies in the title. Very refreshing! I am so numbed-out by blogs claiming this topic yet are effectively void of substance. This ebook made me feel all happy inside again because it makes it all feel so possible. I DL'ed the pdf so I can use it to retrace Ruth Ann Nordin's footsteps and learn. I'm so impressed I might find myself reading a Romance Novel before I know it (wink). It's that good, thank you.
