The Natalie Brandon Thrillers - Meet the heroine Amazon readers call ``wildly entertaining, ``believable and enchanting,`` and ``unforgettable.``

Meet the Author

If you like page-turning thrillers and steamy romantic suspense, you’re in the right place! I write the Natalie Brandon thrillers and the Cherbourg romantic suspense series. I also write historical paranormal, literary fiction, and short stories. Why the hell would any sane person do this? Because I’m me. I don’t like breaking rules in real life, but give me a blank piece of paper, and I’ll break ’em all.

My characters are quirky and a bit out of place, since that’s how I feel most of the time. Writing is what I think about the moment I wake up, and it’s the last thing on my mind at night. This means I burn a lot of dinners and forget countless loads of laundry, but when I get wrapped up in telling a story, nothing else matters. If my books keep you turning pages, it’s all worth it.

Tiara Tuesday

For a while, I did a series where every Tuesday, I wrote about a new tiara. Who created it, who ordered it, who wore it, what happened to it, and how I’d wear it. Sometimes it’s funny, sometimes it’s tragic, sometimes it’s downright bizarre…like that time Princess Stephanie of Belgium patented a chafing dish and it appeared in the NYT above a story about a drunk sailor who thought he saw an island full of pink monkeys. I kid you not. If you like history, jewelry, or royalty, check it out. Someday, I’ll get around to writing more of these.

What Readers Say

Who cares if I think I wrote a good book? You shouldn’t. After all, I’ve made some questionable decisions in my life. The one that springs to mind is this shirt I bought freshman year of college. It had long denim sleeves, a denim collar, and a bunch of flannel squares in complementary plaids arranged on the front. I mean, what was I thinking? Multiple variations of plaid in one shirt? Anyhoo, what matters is when you think I wrote a good book. So here’s what readers have said:

Okay, You Made It This Far

As a reward for scrolling this far, I now present you with an embarrassing video I made. I suck at making videos, but this one turned out okay for the first one I ever made that has me in it.

Well, unless you count that time in high school when some friends and I filmed two scenes from Macbeth for an English class project. You should have seen it. We had dry ice and a cauldron and costumes and fake ghosts and blood and everything. I was one of the witches. My mom was Hecate, because there are too damn many characters in the scene with the witches and we needed our family members to fill in. I hope she still has the VHS tape somewhere. Dang, I got old.

Powered by dreams, angst, and Black Velvet, but not necessarily in that order.
