Romance author, Mary J McCoy-Dressel, western romance, contemporary romanceWhen I started writing my first book, I didn’t intend it to be a romance novel. I learned something about myself–I know how to write a romance novel.

Do you like “happy endings”? I do! I also like small town romance, second chances, and cowboys.

Always having a weakness for reading a good love story, I had to go with what called me. I love having the ability to put my thoughts into words for others to enjoy, and I write from the heart. Other writers have always been my inspiration. Growing up an avid reader, and a writer from a young age, I still believe today, that you can’t be a writer if you’re not a reader.

I’ve had post-secondary classes in creative writing and photography. A few years ago I taught Creative Writing at a local community college and had a blast working with adults. Writing is, and forever will be, my “warm fuzzy.”

I’m mom to two grown sons and a beautiful Australian Shepherd fur baby dog.


I’m the author of the Double Dutch Ranch Series: Love at First Sight, the Bull Rider Series, and a brand new spin-off series—Canyon Junction, AZ, Hearts in Love Series.

Photography is my hobby–another way to let my muse run free.
