I write Romantic Suspense from my small, cozy home in North Mississippi. My writing journey began with freelance articles in denominational Sunday School curriculum and shifted to published short-stories in multiple Anthologies.
The desire to write fiction pushed me to participate in a four-year online writing course by Jerry Jenkins. Upon completing the course, I began pursuing my dream of writing romantic suspense and attending writers conferences.
More About Loretta
Loretta Eidson grew up in Memphis, TN. The truth about her is she . . .
. . . was chased by a rhino in Kenya while on a safari
. . . was selected by a Maasai Warrior to engage in a wedding dance – to her
. . . has parasailed over the ocean, but promised never to do it again
. . . has survived multi-twists on a roller coaster
. . . is a recovering introvert
. . . is a natural blonde
She loves God, family, friends, and all her social media followers. Her thrill of adventure comes from marrying a Memphis Police officer, Kenneth Eidson, raising three sons and one daughter. Her life never has a dull moment with twelve grandchildren. She lives in Olive Branch, Mississippi where she stays in close contact with her family.
Loretta has traveled to some pretty neat places: Africa, Italy, Alaska, Hawaii, Canada.
While working as the Administrative assistant of her church, Loretta felt the call to write fictional, real-to-life stories with an inspirational message. Therefore, romantic suspense became her genre of choice. She loves building tension in a scene and forcing her characters into situations where they must trust God to pull them through.
Loretta enjoys dark chocolate, salted caramel lava cake, caramel frappuccinos, and buttered popcorn. Of course, cedar-planked salmon or a medium filet is on top of the food list.
She’s presented her Writer’s Toolbox devotion at the Mid-South Christian Writers Conference, taught a class on Understanding Writer’s Lingo, spoken to Women’s Ministry groups, and taught Bible classes to the adults at her church.
Loretta is honored to be represented by Tamela Hancock Murray of The Steve Laube Agency.
