Hello! Thanks for stopping by my author page.

I write edgy, Women's Fiction & Mystery novels that deal with real life issues such as infidelity, mental illness, abuse, and grief. My stories are filled with angst, intimacy, despair, and hope. If you like these things, and don't mind a few racy scenes or a sprinkling of profanity here and there, then my books are for you.

I have written four novels to date: "After All Is Said And Done", "The Monster of Silver Creek", "Seasons of Darkness", and "Tragedy at Silver Creek".

Be sure and click on the video trailers to your left to get a sneak peek of what I'm talking about. <----

I love to chat almost as much as I like to write, so come visit me on Facebook at www.facebook.com/Belinda.G.Buchan

If I'm reading a book about a tall, dark-haired man with piercing brown eyes and the guy on the cover has blond hair and blue eyes - it just ruins it for me. They have to match. Everyone develops an image in their mind of the characters they are reading about, which is why you will not see my characters' faces; just their build.

I also want my covers to imitate a scene from the book. For "Seasons of Darkness" - there is a part where Everett visits his wife's grave with red roses. I wanted to show that on the cover of the book.(less)

I am my own worst critic and want to make sure every scene, every word, and every breath my characters take need to be there. The end result is worth the wait, and a product I can be proud of. (less)

“Happiness was an evasive emotion that could not be fabricated, duplicated, or happened upon. It was something that was only handed out to a select few, but just like his mother, Ethan realized that he was never meant to have it.”
Belinda G. Buchanan, Seasons of Darkness

“Ethan didn't mind his blood being taken - he just disliked the fact that it had to be sucked through a needle in order to do it.”

Thank you for the friendship, Alison. I love my last name, too, but alas, I can't take the credit for it - that belongs to my husband. :D
