Member Since
May 2010


Brandy Vallance fell in love with the Victorian time period at a young age, loving the customs, manners, and especially the intricate rules of love. Since time travel is theoretically impossible, she lives in the nineteenth century vicariously through her novels. Unaccountable amounts of black tea have fueled this ambition. Brandy hopes to avoid a similar fate as the writer, Honoré de Balzac, who met his death via caffeine poisoning. At this point, the balance may not be tipped in her favor. Brandy's love of tea can only be paralleled by her love of Masterpiece Theater Classics, deep conversations, and a good book.

Brandy is the 2013 Operation First Novel winner and the 2012 winner of the ACFW Genesis Contest for historical romance. www.bran

Watching historical romances usually gets the inspiration going again. The problem is that there aren't that many good period dramas that I have't seen! I love Masterpiece Theater and the BBC. I also like to walk. Mostly, I do this list thing. When I am stuck on a plot point I'll write down everything that could possible happen, no matter how ridiculous. Usually by the end of the list I have something that I can work with. (less)

Also, the best thing about being a writer is finding the readers who you write the book for. When someone gets it, it is really amazing! (less)

Topics Mentioning This Author

“I'm going to write a novel and get it published. I'm going to do it because writing a novel is worthwhile and because I have the talent to do it.

I'm going to do it because I have something important to say to the world.

I refuse to let anything get in my way.”
Randy Ingermanson

“Don't bend; don't water it down; don't try to make it logical; don't edit your own soul according to the fashion. Rather, follow your most intense obsessions mercilessly.”
Franz Kafka

“The only way you can write the truth is to assume that what you set down will never be read. Not by any other person, and not even by yourself at some later date. Otherwise you begin excusing yourself. You must see the writing as emerging like a long scroll of ink from the index finger of your right hand; you must see your left hand erasing it.”
Margaret Atwood, The Blind Assassin

“You can fix anything but a blank page.”
Nora Roberts

“Cynics are simply thwarted romantics.”
William Goldman, The Princess Bride
