Welcome to my website! I am glad that you chose to visit.
Who am I?
My name is Loraine Nunley. I am a blogger and self-published author. Like many writers, I have been in love with books and writing since I was a child and it was always my dream to become a published author. Thanks to the internet and self publishing companies, I have finally made that dream come true. And just as I have always suspected, it is addicting. I find that I am no longer content with just writing, but I want to see my writing come to fruition in actual books.
Who Inspires Me?
My family is my inspiration for much of what I write. My first book, I Do… Over? A Christian’s Guide to Remarriage was inspired by my husband and our wonderful marriage. 40 Birthday Celebration Ideas, was inspired by my mom who loved celebrating birthdays. Hannah and Rebekah Meet Santa Claus, was a story that I wrote for my daughters. My children’s military aircraft series, This Is The C-130 Hercules, This Is The C-17 Globemaster III, This Is The C-5 Galaxy, These Are Military Aircraft, and This Is The CH-47 Chinook was inspired by my husband and written for my children. In 2019, I published a series of journals and write-in books including a book log and password keeper.
What Am I Writing?
I am currently working on two main projects: An inspirational romantic suspense novel and an inspirational contemporary romance novel.
I am honored to be on street teams for authors like Jen Turano, Lynn Blackburn, Susan Anne Mason, and Cara Putman.

What Will You Find On My Website?
I enjoy sharing my love of books with others. You will find that I like posting book reviews and hosting book giveaways for that reason. Since I read books mostly from the romantic suspense and historical romance genres, those are the ones that I tend to share. But you never know when another genre will creep in there because I really love a good story.
I am passionate about my marriage, family and writing, so you will find articles about those things as well.
