About this author

Brigid Kemmerer finds the time to write somewhere between caring for her family and working at her day job, but sometimes she ends up mothering her coworkers and managing her family. The Elemental Series follows a family of four orphaned brothers who control the elements of Earth, Air, Fire, and Water, and their battles with those who want them dead.

I love friends on Goodreads, so don't hesitate to hit me up with a friend request! I don't review a lot of books out of respect for other authors, but I will have discussions about books, and I love hearing what other people have to say. That said, please note that I ignore all random book recommendations and event invites. Nothing personal, but that system has turned into a spam generator, and

When I was writing Secret I was worried that my editor or agent would make me tone down the relationship between Nick and Adam, but it was very important to me that their romance receive just as much "screen time" as my straight couples. Luckily my editor and agent were totally on board (one of the many reasons they're awesome), so I was able to put Nick and Adam on the page exactly as I intended.

I'm right at the beginning of two new projects, and I can't say much about them yet. That said, I'll never shy away from LGBT characters or storylines, and I'll definitely incorporate them where appropriate. (less)

“She craved a presence beside her, solid. Fingertips light at the nape of her neck and a voice meeting hers in the dark. Someone who would wait with an umbrella to walk her home in the rain, and smile like sunshine when he saw her coming. Who would dance with her on her balcony, keep his promises and know her secrets, and make a tiny world wherever he was, with just her and his arms and his whisper and her trust.”

“Readers have the right to say whatever the fuck they want about a book. Period. They have that right. If they hate the book because the MC says the word “delicious” and the reader believes it’s the Devil’s word and only evil people use it, they can shout from the rooftops “This book is shit and don’t read it” if they want. If they want to write a review entirely about how much they hate the cover, they can if they want. If they want to make their review all about how their dog Foot Foot especially loved to pee on that particular book, they can."

Rachypants Hi Brigid,

Just a random question: if you could be an elemental being or anything supernatural for 24 hours who or what would you be and why? :)


message 27: by Marie

Marie I dont know how many other fans would want one, but I would love to have a Novella for Chris and Becca. :)


message 26: by Sarah

Sarah Thanks for accepting my friend request :)
Can't wait for Secret!


Eugenia (Genie In A Book) Thanks for accepting my friend request :)
Looking forward to reading and discovering more of your work.

Best wishes for more books in the future,
Genie


Shambhawi P. Thanks for accepting. (:

And honestly I completely admire your courage for what you did in Spirit with Kate, (view spoiler) I do feel real bad for Hunter but it is done. Writing and characterization wise Spirit is my favorite book - it was AHMAAZING. But my favorite Merrick brothers still Gabriel *swooon*.

I really am looking forward to being reacquainted with the God of Dance Adam and Nick's sexy descriptions of him. I just need to tweak my mental image of Nick a bit though to go with the new cover model (unless you tell me that it is not really Nick but sb else and all is right in my mental Elemental universe again).


Charlotte Thanks for adding me back!
