GA Hurst


I was born in Muncie, Indiana. Started life in a rural area, I remember helping my parents with a family garden and canning corn at an early age. Times changed and work took us to Ohio. I spent my school years here. Growing up and marrying the love of my life, a local boy.
We still live in a rural area and raised a family of five kids. I’ve always loved reading and story-telling since I was a young girl. Some of my fondest memories are of teachers that did “story time” by reading out loud each day from various and wonderful books.
I have a varied love of books, adventure, history, paranormal, mystery, and yes…romance. One of my early favorites was a book by Katherine E. Woodwiss, The Wolf and the Dove (no it’s not a shifter). I was hooked. Later I fell in love with Christine Feehan’s Dark series. I’m a true fan of many writers: Eddings, Koontz, Kenyon, and of course my bestie Jacqueline Rhoades. Believe me the list could fill up volumes, as most bookaholics can attest.
Children, work and life kept me pretty busy for a lot of years. My dearest friend Jacqueline Rhoades started writing stories and sharing them with me. We had so much fun just going over the plots, characters and more. She got enough courage to put her stories on Amazon and had a lot of success in having readers like them. This gave me the courage to step out there and follow my dream.
Grandchildren and life still keep me pretty busy, but now I also have the fun of putting my stories into books. So now, we’re two old friends, still telling stories and having great fun doing it! While going about life with our children and grandchildren.
That’s how I came to be writing, how about you? I love to talk and chat on Facebook (GA Hurst, author), sharing pictures and fun. You can often find me there on or my website, which is coming soon.

    An well told and amazing story. Wonderful adventure and romance, a great head-strong female (which I love) and a powerful and patient(sort of)hero! An excellent read, can't wait for the next one!
