O is for Emma Orczy

O is for Emma Orczy

Every April A to Z Blogging Challenge, I never fail to learn something new. Today’s post is it. I searched online for an O author to use and came across Emma Orczy. Wasn’t sure what she wrote, so I clicked on the link. She wrote The Scarlet Pimpernel!  I love that character. She was also a painter.

In researching her, she has lots of other stories and plays:

Bio Pic 300x400Andrea R. Cooper writes fantasy, paranormal, historical and contemporary romance suspense.

Her favorite childhood memories revolved around creating vibrant characters for her friends, and then acting out their adventures. Inside her fantasy worlds of darkened forests, dragon-filled glades, and iced islands, nothing was banned. From the ethereal Elvin to the most maligned Vampires, all were welcome in her fictional realities, a stark contrast to her home, where the magical and mythical was forbidden.

Divorced and disillusioned of love and believing all the love songs and books exaggerated, she put aside her creativity for life. Many years past before characters, from the familiar to the freshly conceived, came to her again, but this time teasing at a new passion, the written word.

Gradually, her real life hero brought love and magic back into existence. During the time when her characters were getting reacquainted, the love of her life was showing her that true love never gives up and rekindles no matter how many times others attempt to extinguish it. Today, she is happily married with three children.

Andrea believes in the power of change and delighting in each moment. But most fervently, she believes in the magic of love and imagination again.
