Author Vanessa Grant

“Writing fiction is a perfect life choice for someone like Vanessa Grant who can’t make up her mind what she wants to do when she grows up!”  

There are so many choices and I want to do them all. In real life I’ve taken a lot of roads: I’ve studied psychology, volunteered on a crisis line and as a peer counselor for a family life organization, worked as an accountant and a software developer, taught accounting and fraud investigation at a university, and best of all–told stories about life, love, and secrets. In my stories, my heroes and heroines have lived many of the lives I’m fascinated by.

I live with my wonderful husband and two energetic Australian Shepherds on Vancouver Island … and every so often we indulge in wanderlust and leave the island to go exploring.

Readers, in addition to publication in print, most of my novels are now available for Kindle, Sony, Apple and Kobo as well as other formats. Free samples are available for all my eBook editions.

I love discussing storytelling, books, and the creative process, so don’t hesitate to post a comment on my blog or one of my pages here on the site, or contact me through Twitter or Facebook.

Have a great day, and take the time to read a good book!

  1. I’ve just been reading your “Writing Romance”. I’m very pleased that my first effort at the romantic novel has many of the elements you recommend.
    I look forward to your book being very helpful as I continue to chronicle the lives of the characters in “Fortune Cookies”
    Many thanks for your help!

  2. Hi Vanessa, I would like to discuss a new distribution platform that I think you will find interesting. What is the most appropriate way to connect with you to discuss? Thank you, Fergal

    Hi there! I am enjoying your book “writing romance.” I’m finding it very helpful. However, I wanted to let you know that Charlotte Bronte did not write Wuthering Heights. It was Emily. Charlotte wrote Jane Eyre.

      You’re absolutely right!

      Thanks for catching my error. You’ve got a good eye. The interesting thing is that Writing Romance is in its third edition and you’re the first person to point out that error. Good catch. I’ve made a note in my revision file to fix it if we go into a fourth edition.

      Good luck with your writing.
