Inglath Cooper

Virginia writer Inglath Cooper fell in love with reading as a little girl, devouring the majority of the novels in her elementary school library. Sooner or later, she decided she needed to pursue a writing career, making romance fiction that did for many others exactly what her favorite novels have done to her. “I love character-driven books that leave me feeling like I’t really known that these folks and allow me to wish I didn’t have to turn the previous page. ”

“Romance fiction has always appealed to me as it deals with so many of the connections in a female’s lifestyle. Not merely the love of her life, but frequently her connection with her mum, sister or best friend. Romance authors have as much space to explore lots of the meaningful moments and transitions in girls’s lifetimes. And who doesn’t love a good love story? ”

When aspiring authors ask her how to be an author, she states, “Everything that I know about writing novels I learned by reading novels. ”

Inglath has been chosen as a RITA® Award winner for the best long contemporary romance book given out annually by Romance Writers of America.

Exterior of writing, Inglath is actively involved in dog rescue, working with The Franklin County Humane Society to place dogs and cats in need of rehoming. She has volunteered her time at every capacity potential: serving on the Board of Directors, fundraising, photographing cats and dogs available for adoption and serving as a foster home. “Helping a mistreated or puppy go on to get a great life with a family who loves them is much more rewarding than I can possibly say. ”
