About Gloria Galloway
Hi and Welcome!
I first embraced the world of make-believe as a little girl of seven, when my dolls were the characters for my stories. Of course, back then I didn’t want to kill them. No really.
As a teenager, I spent every spare moment at my local library. I devoured books. I read instead of doing homework, I read instead of doing chores, and I read instead of sleeping. It was about that time that I first put pen to paper. My tastes were very eclectic. I enjoyed romance and science fiction and mysteries. Think Nancy Drew dating the football hero at a high school on Mars.
My first serious foray into writing stemmed from my love of romance novels. I constantly told my husband that “I could write that.” I guess he finally got tired of hearing me say it and told me to do it. I took up the challenge and wrote my first book: Only In My Dreams, a historical romance set in Mexico during the era of Maximilian. It took me ten years to write it. And that’s not a typo. I loved writing romance novels and although I had an agent for a time, it was never quite the right fit for me. My daughters are trying to convince me to self-publish the book. I’m thinking about it.
I feel that I’ve found the right niche in the crime thriller genre. I hope you’ll agree. Please take a moment to check out my debut novel, Dead By My Side.
