G.A. Edwards is a retired English teacher now spending her days as a writer, speaker, and leader of a local writing group. Her goal is to share the joys of literature one word at a time. Growing up in the rural community taught her to honor her elders and pay attention to their great stories. A voracious reader since an early age of numerous genres, she now writes gritty contemporary thrillers for teens with flawed heroes you’ll want to come out on top. Memberships in Heartland Romance Authors, Mid-America Romance Authors, Midwest Romance Authors, Romance Writers of America, Sisters in Crime, Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, Writers of Warrensburg and as an intern for the New Adult line with Entangled Publishing, L.L.C. helped produce her writing skills and even more friends. She lives in the Midwest where she enjoys working with budding local writers, presenting entertaining and interactive educational programs for lovers of literature of all ages, traveling with her husband, and spoiling the grandchildren she is barely old enough to claim. She swears she loves teens, a good story, and her minivan, but avoids celery, glitter, and squirrels when possible.
