Kemberlee Shortland

Biography

Kemberlee is a native Northern Californian who was raised in a community known as Steinbeck Country, home to authors John Steinbeck, Jack London, Robert Campbell, Robert Louis Stevenson, George Sterling, Robinson Jeffers, Mary Austin... just to name a few. With so much influence around her, it’s not hard to see why she fell in love with the printed word.

In 1997, Kemberlee couldn't pass up the opportunity to spend six months in Ireland, where she met a man who eventually became her husband. Upon permanently relocating to Ireland, Kemberlee established an Irish travel consultancy, building a reputation as one of Ireland's foremost Irish travel experts.

Kemberlee has had the opportunity to study Ireland's history and culture first hand, and has even picked up a cúpla focal . . . a few Irish words. Because of her knowledge of Ireland, she has had the privilege of working with some of the romance industry’s top authors who’ve set their stories in Ireland, including Deb Stover for "Mulligan Stew" and "Mulligan Magic."

Over the years, Kemberlee’s love of Ireland has inspired a number of Irish set stories, including A Piece of My Heart, Kemberlee’s first published novel, and short stories Moondance and The Power of Love. Other short stories include Tutti-Frutti Blues and Dude Looks Like A Lady, both set in Kemberlee's hometown of Carmel-by-the-Sea. All of these stories are published through Highland Press. See Kemberlee's website for order information.
