REVIVAL ~BY~ M.K.GILHER
I currently live in the Chicagoland area with my family and friends. I have been influenced by such greats as Danielle Steele and A.N. Roquelaure, which lead me towards the romantic genre. My first book Revival, Book One of the Return To Us trilogy, centers around two healthcare professionals with dark pasts, but hope for brighter futures. I feel the success of Revival is due to my own experiences working in healthcare that are weaved throughout the story. These first hand experiences along with imagination allowed me to craft a truly memorable narrative.
Writing has always been in my blood; in fifth grade and high school, I won national poetry contests. I grew up seeing my mother fall in love with romance stories, I knew I had to get my own story out. Although I hold degrees that are unrelated to writing, it is an undeniable part of my personality and one that emerges with Revival, my debut in the world of fiction. With compelling characters, sophisticated plot lines, and touching dialogue, Revival sets the stage for a complex yet relatable play that winds its way throughout the Return To Us trilogy.
When I am not writing, I enjoy volunteering, gardening, and spending time with my family. I attribute all of my success to my parents, friends, and family, who have supported me throughout my career.
