The concept for this story basically came to my writing partner, Heather Doherty, as a sort of dream/vision when we were at a cottage by the lake. By the time she finished telling me about the dark caster forms peeling away to go soaring through the night, I had to pull the black out blind on my window when I went to bed. I would have freaked if I'd seen so much as a bat flutter past. True story!(less)

Protecting Paige (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:31PM
Description: This is Book 3 in my Serve and Protect Series. Here's the scoop: Single parent Paige Harmer is at her wits end about her son. Dillon’s a good kid, but he’s fallen in with a bad crowd. She’s determined to enlist the help of her next door neighbor, the extremely handsome and much younger Tommy Godsoe. Tommy is a local cop, and up until he got shot recently in a police raid, was a dog handler. His injury is such that he can never go back to field work, and he refuses to be a desk jockey. All he wants is to nurse his wounds in solitude, and he’s done a great job driving his friends and colleagues away. But Paige is an unstoppable force. Before he knows it, he’s drawn into their lives. As it turns out, Paige and Dillon are going to need a cop in their corner. And Tommy needs Paige to drag him out of his self-pity and back to life. "PROTECTING PAIGE combines tension-filled action, humor and great writing to produce this amazingly tender romance." --The Romance Reviews "Norah Wilson has another winner in this book." --LoveRomancePassion
Saving Grace (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:31PM
Description: This is Book 2 in my Serve and Protect Series. Here's the short description: After wrecking her car and waking in hospital with amnesia, fledgling reporter Grace Morgan has no idea why she’d been in the process of leaving the husband she loves so dearly. Her husband, Police Detective Ray (Razor) Morgan tells her she was leaving him for another man, but that just can’t be so. Can it? She’s determined to remember, even if it kills her. And it just might. When bullets start to fly, Ray is forced to take the wife he believes faithless on the lam until they can figure out who is trying to kill them. Norah Wilson hits another one out of the park with book two in the Serve and Protect series. --The Romance Reviews "...a perfect mix of romance and suspense." --LoveRomancePassion "She (Wilson) combines characters that just jump off the pages, a winning story line and fast action to make this a real page turner." --Sugarbeat's Books
Guarding Suzannah (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:31PM
Description: This is the first story in my Serve and Protect series (romantic suspense). Here's the quick setup: Criminal defense attorney Suzannah Phelps is the bane of the St. Cloud police department (they call her She-Rex for her habit of shredding cops in the witness box). She is currently being stalked, but is reluctant to report it to the police, whom she half suspects of being the perpetrators. But when Detective John (Quigg) Quigley learns of it, he's determined to protect her, at considerable risk to his career. They've struck sparks off each other in the courtroom, and he's burning to do the same in the bedroom. When the danger escalates, he has the perfect excuse to pose as her boyfriend, but the closer they get, the more the lines between pretense and reality blur. Book Junkie says: Explosively sexy, the chemistry between the two is hot, sensual and sweet all at the same time! --Book Junkie Sizzling chemistry and tingling suspense are combined in GUARDING SUZANNAH to make it the best romantic suspense I've read. I think this award-winning author has produced an edge of your seat beginning to a great series! --The Romance Reviews Quigg harkens back to the hard boiled gum shoes, a tenacious bulldog of a cop.... Suzannah is an upper crust girl who is clearly very used to having her own way. This gives the story an almost modern Noir feel. --You Gotta Read Reviews "Holy cow - this was an AMAZING read! The twists and turns of this romantic suspense novel had me tied up in knots and hating to put this book aside to sleep!" --Marilyn Rondeau, ck2skwipsandkritiques

Norah’s Recent Updates

“The look he shot her was incredulous in the extreme. "You have a filing system for your shoes?”
Norah Wilson, Guarding Suzannah

“She turned away in dismissal, only to have him grab her hand and whirl her around again. Before her startled gasp died, his mouth was on hers, his fingers buried in her hair. [...]
He tasted like nothing she’d ever tasted before. Like dark fantasy. Like the sweetest temptation imaginable. And his scent! He smelled of cool night air and warm leather jacket and heated male skin.”
Norah Wilson, Nightfall

“We had fun, didn’t we?” she said, her eyes glinting. “Well, apart from the last bit.”
Fun? He remembered burying himself inside her and thinking he’d finally come home. He remembered pillowing his head on her breasts and coming apart in her arms. Fun?
She took a step closer, her body language shouting that she was going to lean over the bed rail and kiss him. A long, bittersweet goodbye kiss, no doubt. Jesus, he couldn’t bear it.”
Norah Wilson, Lauren's Eyes

“Prose is architecture, not interior decoration.”
Ernest Hemingway

“All blame is a waste of time. No matter how much fault you find with another, it will not change you.”

“You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you.”
Ray Bradbury, Zen in the Art of Writing

“I often find that a novel, even a well-written and compelling novel, can become a blur to me soon after I've finished reading it. I recollect perfectly the feeling of reading it, the mood I occupied, but I am less sure about the narrative details. It is almost as if the book were, as Wittgenstein said of his propositions, a ladder to be climbed and then discarded after it has served its purpose.”
