Virginia Nelson believed them when they said, “Write what you know.” Small town girl writing small town romance, her characters are as full of flaws, misunderstandings, and flat out mistakes as Virginia herself. When she’s not writing or plotting to take over the world, she likes to hang out with the greatest kids in history, play in the mud, drive far too fast, and scream at inanimate objects. Virginia likes knights in rusted and dinged up armor, heroes that snarl instead of croon, and heroines who can’t remember to say the right thing even with an author writing their dialogue. Her books are full of snark, sex, and random acts of ineptitude—not always in that order.

NEW RELEASE! Find out more about The Most Important Thing

Last year, I wrote this book in one long burst of words.

My crit partner said it sparkled.

The thing is, toxic parents are a thing. And as genX (or zennials or whatever they're calling us today) gets older, we're becoming the caretaker generation for both our Millennial or younger kids AND our parent generation of Boomers.

But how do you (or should you?) take care of the older generation if you were Read more of this blog post »

Quotes by Virginia Nelson  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Beauty
isn’t all about tooth whiteners, hard abs, and hundred-dollar lipstick. Beauty is
about growing old together, remembering when together, laughing together. If my
picture disgusts you, fine. Go look at the faces of women who named a price you
can buy them for. I’m not the kind of woman who will ever be for sale, and shame
on you for not expecting more from a woman, or from yourself.”
Virginia Nelson, Sugar On Top

“Don’t you ‘baby’ me, you backwoods barbarian. I'm not settling for bringing you pie and beer for the rest of my life. I have plans. They don’t include marriage to you.”
Virginia Nelson

“It was no way to think about her best friend’s boyfriend. But every time she saw Andy, her body reacted.

My gaydar is defective, she thought grimly.”
Virginia Nelson, Clothing Optional

“I don't put up with being messed around, and I don't suffer fools gladly. The short version of that is that I'm a bitch. Trust me, I can provide character references.”
Robin McKinley, Sunshine

“[Harry] had always suffered from a vague restlessness, a longing for adventure that she told herself severely was the result of reading too many novels when she was a small child.”
Robin McKinley, The Blue Sword

“You are attempting to be logical, I suspect, and logic has little to do with government, and nothing at all to do with military administration. ”
Robin McKinley, The Blue Sword

“I wondered what you'd have on the side with a plate of Deep Fried Anxiety. Pickles? Coleslaw? Potato-strychnine mash?”
Robin McKinley, Sunshine

“You asked why I couldn't forgive you," Nick said, very quietly, and I jumped a little. "It was because you were the love of my life, Harper. And you didn't want to be. That's hard to let go.”
Kristan Higgins, My One and Only
