Margo Hoornstra       I first got the writing bug when a short story I authored, I have no idea about what, was chosen for publication in an elementary school anthology. Journalism class in high school led to a position on the school paper and, eventually, a column of my own.

       Like many who create stories, I figured someday to write a book. But only when the time was right, which meant after I earned a formal education, launched and sustained a successful and rewarding career, met and married the man of my dreams, raised the children of our hearts and became financially independent.

       To paraphrase the song lyric, life happened while I was busy making other plans. Proof of the education is in a frame on the wall, the career came and went, but the husband is still with me. The children are grown with lives of their own, and our vast accumulation of wealth never quite materialized. You could say I finally got to the point of, if not now…when?

       In my author life, I create strong women who believe in themselves and their ability to overcome life’s obstacles to survive and thrive. The men who come into their lives better measure up…or else. Kind of like the man who came into my life a number of years ago. Not only is he super supportive of what I do these days, but he’s also a very talented plot master in his own right. Which does come in handy now and then.

       An English major by training and communications specialist by trade, I’ve worked as a magazine editor, television producer and speech and script writer. Words of others, not my own. I now writing fiction full time, always providing my characters with their hard fought and well deserved happily ever after.

       My personal history in a nutshell is pretty simple. Wife to one, mother to four, eight if you count in-law children, which I do, and grandmother to four fabulous lights of my life.

       The Brothers In Blue series is near and dear to my heart for two reasons. Coming from a law enforcement family, I’m well aware of the toll the profession can take on its members as well as those who love them, which I hope to portray in my books. Second, I received the contracts to write the Brothers In Blue books, to release over the span of four or five years, about the same time as I received a cancer diagnosis. Taking a deep breath, I signed the contracts, determined to fulfill them. The cancer was caught early and, I’m happy to report, I am now officially cured. I truly believe it was my commitment to the Brothers In Blue books that was part of what helped see me through.
