about

Brighton Walsh spent nearly a decade as a professional photographer before deciding to take her storytelling in a different direction and reconnect with her first love: writing. When she’s not pounding away at the keyboard, she’s probably either reading or shopping—maybe even both at once. She lives in the Midwest with her husband and two children, and, yes, she considers forty degrees to be hoodie weather. Her home is the setting for frequent dance parties, Lego battles, and more laughter than she thought possible.

She is multi-published with Berkley, St. Martin’s Press, and Carina Press, and is represented by Mandy Hubbard of Emerald City Literary Agency.

 random facts

1

My first car was a yellow Mustang nearly as old as I was that didn’t go above 50 miles per hour, but it was a pretty little thing and I loved it.

2

While digging through one of my many nostalgia boxes, I found a smutty story I wrote when I was fourteen. Let’s not tell my mother.

3

I wanted to be a pediatrician when I grew up. Then I shadowed a pediatrician, saw a spinal tap done on a two-year-old little boy and said, “Screw this.”

4

I suffer from I-can-totally-do-that-myself-itis. If I see something I like/am interested in/want, I figure I can just do it myself. Exhibit A: photography. Exhibit B: writing books I want to read.

5

I found a tutu on Etsy I wanted for 2013’s RWA conference, but I waited too long to order. So I sewed it myself and wore it to the Harlequin party. (Fact 5 also known as Exhibit C)

6

I’m addicted to Sharpies. Okay, not just Sharpies—any and all pens and markers…and file folders…and notebooks…and post-it notes. Fine, I’m an office supply whore.

7

I’ve had my oldest child’s name picked out since I was twelve. I’m sure it’s no surprise I got it from a book.

8

I love the snow. And the cold. I will take winter over summer any day of the week and twice on Sunday.

9

I married my high school sweetheart. We fell in love at the age most people (our parents included) said we didn’t know what love was.
