Ohio author, Chrissy Hartmann hopes one day to hit the New York Best Sellers list with her contemporary sweet western romances. Now out is her debut to her Whiskey Salvation Series, RESCUING WHISKEY'S Salvation. Coming soon will be her novella, Cherishing Whiskey’s Salvation and another novel to the Whiskey Salvation Series late in 2023.
Her favorite genre to write is romance. But she also blogs for the Prickle Forrest Chronicles. She's even authored two award-winning short stories that she refers to as a shattered short story like Marilyn Todd and Shirley Jackson. And to lighten the mood she dabbles in poetry once in a great while, which lean toward the style of Shel Silverstein.
This author has lived in various parts of Ohio, but now resides in her hometown of Wooster. A graduate of Kent State University with a B.A. in History she planned to get her master’s in Library of Science until the loss of her eyesight thwarted that. But not to be stopped from anything with books, she bought a computer that talks via JAWS and writes her own novels, which she’s taught herself how to do over the last 20+ years and can be found writing at all hours of the day.
However, she does manage to set aside 4 hours a day to write reviews and blog. And with a couple other hours, she can be found spinning vinyl with her husband, discussing Star Wars with her Eagle Scout, or playing with her retired guide dog and long-haired kitten. She loves coffee and writing workshops, but better yet, both together. One day, she hopes to retire to island life, preferably on Put-In-Bay and if not, at least research it for years for a new series.
