Verna Clay

"2020 Finalist - Readers' Favorite International Contest (Paranormal Romance) for SOMEWHERE by the Sea." "2014 Gold Medal Winner - Readers' Favorite International Contest (Historical Romance) for Abby: Mail Order Bride." My perfect day: coffee shop; laptop; latte; characters demanding their stories be told; a plot that comes together; and hours to live in an alternate reality. Seriously, I have always loved reading, and now I love writing. As a preteen, I devoured Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys mysteries, but when I reached my teen years the romance genre became my favorite, and that has never changed. After years of procrastinating, I tried my hand at writing and I've been doing so with a passion ever since. I have written over thirty romance novels and novellas in the genres of contemporary western, historical western, contemporary, and paranormal/fantasy. Because I hate saying goodbye to characters who have lived with me for months, I usually create a series so they can be revisited from book to book. I have also written a Young Adult novella titled "Fragile Hearts" using the pen name of Colleen Clay. ***Books Listing*** "Contemporary Western" ROMANCE ON THE RANCH SERIES Dream Kisses (Kindle, Audiobook) Honey Kisses (Kindle, Audiobook) Baby Kisses (Kindle, Audiobook) Candy Kisses (Kindle) Christmas Kisses (Kindle) Rock Star Kisses (Kindle) Forever Kisses (Kindle) Forgotten Kisses (Kindle) Angel Kisses (Kindle) The Last Kiss (Kindle) Romance on the Ranch Collection 1-3 (Kindle, Paperback) Romance on the Ranch Series 1-5 (Kindle, Paperback) Romance on the Ranch Series 6-10 (Kindle, Paperback) OASIS, ARIZONA SERIES Stranded in Oasis (Kindle) Branded in Oasis (Kindle) Crashed in Oasis (Kindle) Oasis Series Collection 1-3 (Kindle) "Contemporary Paranormal/Fantasy" FINDING SOMEWHERE SERIES *SOMEWHERE by the Sea (Kindle, Paperback, Large Print Paperback, Audiobook) SOMEWHERE to Spend Christmas (Kindle, Paperback, Large Print Paperback, Audiobook) SOMEWHERE for a Hero to Hide (Kindle, Paperback, Large Print Paperback, Audiobook) SOMEWHERE to Begin Again (Kindle, Paperback, Large Print Paperback, Audiobook) SOMEWHERE to Fall in Love (Kindle, Paperback, Large Print Paperback, Audiobook) *2020 Finalist Readers' Favorite Int'l Book Contest/Paranormal Romance SHAPELING TRILOGY Roth: Protector (Book 1) (Kindle, Paperback) Fawn: Master (Book 2) (Kindle, Paperback) Davide: Prince (Book 3) (Kindle, Paperback) Shapeling Trilogy Collection 1-3 (Kindle, Paperback) Jazmine (Kindle) "Historical Western" UNCONVENTIONAL SERIES *Abby: Mail Order Bride (Kindle, Paperback, Audiobook) Broken Angel (Kindle, Audiobook) Ryder's Salvation (Kindle) Joy's Return (Kindle) Unconditional Series Complete Collection 1-4 (Kindle, Paperback) *2014 Gold Medal Winner Readers' Favorite Int'l Book Contest/Historical Romance FINDING HOME SERIES Cry of the West: Hallie (Kindle, Paperback, Audiobook) Rescue on the Rio: Lilah (Kindle, Paperback) Missouri Challenge: Daisy (Kindle, Paperback) Finding Home Series Collection 1-3 (Kindle) RED ROCKS TRILOGY: PAST, PRESENT, FUTURE Healing Woman of the Red Rocks: Past (Kindle, Paperback) Song of the Red Rocks: Present (Kindle, Paperback) Spirit Tree of the Red Rocks: Future (Kindle, Paperback) Red Rocks Collection 1-3 (Kindle) JOURNEYS OF THE HEART SERIES Violet's Vindication (Kindle) Priscilla's Pride (Kindle) Samuel's Sacrifice (Kindle) Saul's Second Chance (Kindle) YOUNG ADULT (Verna Clay writing as Colleen Clay) Fragile Hearts (Kindle) AUDIO BOOKS Abby: Mail Order Bride Broken Angel Cry of the West: Hallie Dream Kisses Honey Kisses Baby Kisses SOMEWHERE by the Sea SOMEWHERE to Spend Christmas SOMEWHERE for a Hero to Hide SOMEWHERE to Begin Again SOMEWHERE to Fall in Love LARGE PRINT PAPERBACKS SOMEWHERE by the Sea SOMEWHERE to Spend Christmas SOMEWHERE for a Hero to Hide SOMEWHERE to Begin Again SOMEWHERE to Fall in Love Here are some of my favorite reviews: "I can say with all honesty that Verna Clay has become a favorite author of mine, and I was giddy to read the first book of this new series taking place in the fictional Arizona small town of Oasis...If you've never read a Verna Clay novel, now is the perfect time to embrace a new addiction. Side effects are chuckles, mild euphoria, and the production of good mood enhancing chemicals in the brain." ~Angie Just Read with The Romance Reviews (Stranded in Oasis) "...The very talented Verna Clay simply leaves me in awe. Her ability to capture on the page the deeply emotional subjects that drive the everyman is done in a series of warm and tender moments that mean her craft for writing just gets better and better with every story told..." ~Angie Just Read with The Romance Reviews (Christmas Kisses) "Verna Clay's writing is a new discovery for me. She enthralled me from the first word to the last page. All I want now is to read another book of hers..." ~Steffi with The Romance Reviews (Abby: Mail Order Bride) "I loved this book. It had heart and made me cry a few times. It was so true to life in it's real emotions..." ~Florida Girl at Amazon (Abby: Mail Order Bride) "This was a amazing journey...I have read it 3 times and still cry! I also laugh and love the characters. They touched my life in a very nice way..." ~Iwiggy at Amazon (Abby: Mail Order Bride) "I haven't enjoyed such a read in a long while. Romance novels are so often wound around similar plots and flowery vocabulary, but "Dream Kisses" is a pleasant piece of pastry on a rainy day. It is that forbidden square of chocolate that gives hope to the hopeful romantic..." ~Lisa McCombs at Readers Favorite Book Reviews (Dream Kisses) "...This is a wonderful romance series that will have you loving the characters, and wishing to join their lives on the ranch!" ~Kristie I. at Readers Favorite Book Reviews (Honey Kisses) "...Incredible! Wasted pages of backstory are eliminated and Verna Clay immerses us directly into the life of the characters where they happen to be in this time of their lives. Abby: Mail Order Bride had me bawling! It was so touching and felt so very honest...this is truly a wonderful find..." ~Kim at Goodreads (Abby: Mail Order Bride)
