Tricia Copeland grew up in Georgia but now lives outside the mile-high city of Denver, Colorado with her family and four-legged and finned friends. She began her career as a microbiologist, but now spends most daylight hours as a patent consultant. Tricia not only draws from personal experiences, but creates adventurous and fantastical journeys for her characters. She feels it is important to portray bravery in the face of turmoil and challenge.
Her contemporary romance Being Me Series includes the titles Is This Me?, If I Could Fly, Think You Me, and the finale, Being Me. The books follow a college co-ed named Amanda, from her freshman to her senior year, as she navigates crushes, first love, second love, and an intense personal tragedy.
Tricia also writes in the young adult space. Her first YA paranormal work, entitled Drops of Sunshine, features Nina, who hopes to escape her family drama at a summer camp for the visually-challenged. Problems ensue when she realizes the campers can hear her thoughts. This novella is available free in Spellbound, a summer themed anthology of YA stories. It is also available as a stand-alone in paperback and ebook. Tricia’s second YA work, a dystopian tale featuring Jema and Troy, is entitled Lovelock Ones: Native One and can be found in The Butterfly Box. All proceeds from this anthology benefit Doctors Without Borders.
Copeland’s latest books are the YA paranormal romance Kingdom Journals Series including Kingdom of Embers and Kingdom of Darkness. In the first two journals, you read a first-person account of two modern-day witches, and their path to finding out who they are and why they are special. The third and fourth books of the series, Kingdom of Honor and Kingdom of War, are due out in September of 2017 and June of 2018, respectively.
