Brandilyn Collins

Brandilyn Collins is an award-winning and best-selling novelist of over 30 books. She is known for her trademark Seatbelt Suspense®--fast-paced, character-driven,  with myriad twists and an interwoven thread of faith. She is also recognized for her unique book on how to write fiction—Getting Into Character: Seven Secrets a Novelist Can Learn From Actors.

Brandilyn’s first book, A Question of Innocence, was a true crime published by Avon (HarperCollins) in 1995. Its promotion landed her on local and national TV and radio, including the Phil Donahue and Leeza talk shows.

After 25 traditionally published books (19 with HarperCollins), Brandilyn chose to forge out on her own as an independent publisher. She is now involved in all aspects of publishing, from writing to formatting, cover design, marketing, and sales.

Brandilyn is a popular teacher of fiction and keynote speaker at writers conferences across the country.
