Born in Philadelphia, Courtney J. Hall's writing career began when she figured out how much fun it was to make words rhyme. She has since gone on to publish embarrassingly bad poetry, melodramatic short stories and has written beginnings to at least a half-dozen novels.

Courtney lives with her husband in suburban Philadelphia. She's an unapologetic Anglophile, tea drinker, voracious reader, history geek, and cat thief. Her first novel, Some Rise By Sin, is a historical romance that takes place at the tumultuous end of Mary Tudor's reign. Her second novel, A Holiday Wish, is the first in the Silver Bells contemporary Christmas romance series.

They're the very definition of soulmates (or kindred spirits, if you will), so perfectly complementary to each other without being unrealistic. I think all couples should aspire to the Anne-and-Gilbert kind of love.(less)

I wait. And wait. And usually wait some more. And then I feel guilty that of the three members of my critique group I'm the only one with no books to my name while the others have two and three, and I force myself to open the document and just write something. Anything. It usually gets delete, but it gets the juices flowing.(less)

When I’m not writing, I’m designing. And when I’m designing, it’s usually a book cover. I design covers for my own books (those I’ve written, those that are just kernels of ideas, and those I might never actually write), for the authors in Five Directions Press, and occasionally, for an independent author who has no … Continue reading Book Cover Wednesday Read more of this blog post »
