Announcement: Welcome Belinda McBride to the Corvisiero Literary Agency

Please join me in welcoming speculative fiction writer, Belinda McBride to the Corvisiero Literary Agency.

Belle Starr
That's right! We've signed another client and I'm not afraid to say, I'm slightly smitten with this one. Belinda McBride can best be described as incredibly diverse with a skill to make you forget you're reading a book when immersing yourself in her writing. I first fell in love with her writing when I picked up a copy of Belle Starr when in search for sci-fi romance with a kick-ass heroine. Of her books, it's still my favorite and I may just give her cookies to write me another one. How can you go wrong with bounty hunter shifters in space! ;)

Belinda McBride

Belinda was born in Inglewood, California, but grew up far to the north in the shadow of Mt. Shasta. While her upbringing seemed pretty normal to her, she was surrounded by a fascinating array of friends and family, including various cowboys, hippies, scoundrels and saints.

She has a degree in history and cultural anthropology, but in 2006 made the life-changing decision to quit her job as a public health paraprofessional and stay at home full time to care for her severely disabled niece. This difficult decision gave Belinda the gift of time, which allowed her to return to writing fiction, which she’d abandoned years before.

Belinda’s hobbies include soap making, dog shows, collecting gemstones, travel, and Chinese martial arts. She has two daughters, six Siberian Huskies, a half dozen betta fish, and an array of wild birds that visit the feeders in the front yard.

As an author, Belinda loves crossing genres, kicking taboos to the curb, and pulling from world mythology and folklore for inspiration. She won the Passionate Plume in science fiction for her m/m romance An Uncommon Whore, and the EPIC in paranormal romance for Blacque/Bleu.

Belinda is committed to taking her readers on an emotional journey and never forgets that at the end of the day, she’s writing about love.

You can find Belinda on the web at her website, goodreadsFacebook and Twitter.
