Harley was born and raised in Kentucky, where she still resides today. She has three beautiful children that she spends most of her time with, three rowdy dogs, and two cats. Harley also enjoys traveling, reading, and of course, writing. She has a bachelor’s degree in education, and also a master’s degree in education with an emphasis in reading and writing.
When she’s not writing, she teaches part-time in education, helping adults to obtain their GED, which is the equivalency to a high school diploma. The funny thing is she is teaching math part-time, which is out of her element, and at first, teaching the GED, she was basically learning with her students!
Look for upcoming books for Harley McKenna, she is constantly working on something!
Q: How often do you write?
A: I try to write every day, at least five pages, with a goal of ten daily. I write whenever I can because it’s hectic around the house. So sometimes I am up at midnight.
Q: What do you like to read?
A: I am an avid reader. I love books, any type, from self improvement to romance, history books to cookbooks. I just love to read. My friends say I am a book hoarder!
Q: How long have you been writing?
A: This is my first published book, but I have been journal writing daily since I was in middle school. Even though my thoughts were private in my journal, it gave me lots of practice and writing experience. I have been writing technical and academic papers for the last ten years.
Q: Are your characters based on real people?
A: The characters are not based on real people but more like a mash up of a lot of people. I put the best traits of some people together to make my dream man, or simply I envision the mate I would love to have. My heroines have many attributes of my closest friends or people I admire.
Q: How does it feel to finish writing a book?
A: It feels great! But it’s also like giving up a part of yourself. I live in Snyder Falls when I am writing for the series, and hate to leave it! So submitting it to SirenPublishing.com was a little scary. To think about letting people into my fantasy life was scary and completely awesome at the same time.
