GA Hurst


G.A. Hurst was born in Muncie, Indiana. Started life in a rural area. She remembers helping my parents with a family garden and canning corn at an early age. Times changed and work took the family to Ohio. G.A. spent her school years here. Growing up, marrying, and having a family.
G.A. has always loved reading and story-telling since she was a young girl. Some of her fondest memories are of teachers that did “story time” by reading out loud each day from various and wonderful books.
G.A. has a varied love of books, adventure, history, paranormal, mystery, and yes…romance. One of her early favorites was a book by Katherine E. Woodwiss, The Wolf and the Dove (no it’s not a shifter book). She was hooked on romance. Later she fell in love with Christine Feehan’s Dark series.
G.A. is 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.
Life is still busy with children and grandchildren, but writing adds joy to her days.
You can often find me there on or my website, which is coming soon.

Smashwords Interview

What is your writing process?
I have characters that have traits and special stories behind their history. I use them to develop a new story in the saga of the new world being built. I begin with the idea and the characters and I work to describe them, bring them to life for me. I ask them what life is like for a typical day and imagine the things they might do or say. Then with research, as needed, I can begin to tell the story.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I'm not sure it was the first story I ever read, but I do remember my favorite teacher "Mrs. Horton". She read from 'age appropriate' books, tales of adventure and interest. The one that intrigued me was "Balsar and the Bears of Blue River" by Charles Major. Loved those stories!

    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!
