About the Author


Born and raised in Southern California, Genella deGrey longed to be your typical blonde, tanned, surfer girl but failed miserably. Unable to sit idle without falling asleep, she embarked upon several artistic endeavors. Makeup and set dressing for the entertainment industry, Resort Enhancement for The Walt Disney Company and writing sexy historical romance top the list of her favorite activities.

A consummate closet goth and amateur music and [red] wine enthusiast, she’s also a hopeless romantic anticipating the arrival of her very own ‘happily ever after.’

Hobbies: Genella has a keen interest in the spirit world. She loves wandering around in graveyards, traveling to battle fields and other haunted destinations, the older the better. New Orleans is one of her favorite places to encounter the supernatural, as is Tombstone, AZ.


A little bit about my way of telling a story.

In many of the romance novels I cut my reading teeth on, the plot device was often used where the hero and heroine hated each other for well over half of the book. While I understand why authors write novels that way, mostly to build the anticipation, I find I enjoy the story more when there exists an undeniable magnetism between the H & H, and they are crazy about each other for them moment thy lock gazes. This is why you will find sizzling chemistry in my books from the first.

After all, why waste your time if love is not extraordinary?

Are you a psychic?

No, I do not profess to be a psychic, but I can point you in the direction of one if you are interested. Please see the heading on my side bar “Body, Mind & Spirit” for websites of Psychics with whom I have worked and trust.



Would you read and critique my manuscript?

As much as I would love to, and have done so in the passed, I can no longer take the time away from my writing day. A proper critique would require more than a short email response, and it wouldn’t be fair of me to offer such a trifle to you in lieu of your many hours of hard work.
