My journey as an author

C.C. Wiley Knight Secrets - FINALHave you always dreamed of being an author? Do you love telling stories to friends and family members? Is writing your creative passion or way to escape? If so, I encourage you to consider pursuing a career as an author. It might seem daunting, but achieving your dreams is absolutely possible.

Take me for instance, I grew up on a farm in the Midwest and quickly learned to escape the never-ending chores by storytelling. I’d slip off to the barn or the fields and settle into a book that would take me away. Before long, I started creating my own stories to keep myself entertained.

Eventually, career responsibilities prevailed and I put away my storytelling, but never my love for reading. That all changed one year, after a fabulous trip to England. I came home and my fascination with historical romance blossomed from a reader into a storyteller. Once the idea struck, I just couldn’t get it out of my head. I had to write.

So, I began the arduous task of learning all I could about writing a story. And things never stopped. In fact, to this day, those lessons continue.

I believe there are wonderful courageous characters waiting for someone to tell their story. When I write, my goal is to capture a moment in time, where the threads of history, adventure, hope, passion, and love, sweep the reader away. Each time I begin a new novel I’m excited to discover my character’s stories.knight-treasures C.C. Wiley

I now reside in Utah where my dreams are supported by my very own hunky knight in shining armor and our four dogs. This journey would be so much harder and lonelier without their love.

I invite you to share in my dreams by picking up a copy of one of my Knights of the Swan books. I believe you will get swept away to magical lands where princesses live in castles and really do swoon over handsome knights. After all, my books are: “Where Medieval history and passion and unite”

Here’s what readers are saying about the Knights of the Swan series

knight-treasures C.C. WileyAre you tired of reading the same old novels about detectives catching bad guys or powerful women running fashion houses? If so, maybe it’s time to put those books down and turn the page so to speak.

How about falling in love with a historical romance? My Knights of the Swan Series now includes three installments:

  • KNIGHT SECRETS: THE KNIGHTS OF THE SWAN BOOK #1
  • KNIGHT QUESTS: THE KNIGHTS OF THE SWAN BOOK #2
  • KNIGHT TREASURES: KNIGHTS OF THE SWAN, BOOK #3

And a fourth will hit digital retailers in July of 2018:

  • SIR NATHAN’S STORY: KNIGHT FURIES: KNIGHTS OF THE SWAN #4

If you’re wondering what to expect, here’s a handful of reviews from some of my readers:

It’s a refreshing change to find a Historical romance that ISN’T a Regency. This one is set in 1415, during the early years of the reign of King Henry V of England. It even features a historically verifiable fact, Henry’s departure for France in the summer of 1415.”

“Frankly, that’s quite impressive; historical accuracy in romances set in the Middle Ages isn’t exactly a given (don’t talk to me about potatoes). Knight Secrets, however, is an exception; meticulously researched and beautifully written, the historical knowledge of the author is very much on display here.”

“There are a few questions left unanswered in the book, but I suspect that’s deliberate, with a few loose ends to be tied off in other books in the series. They don’t detract at all from the story, which is an excellent, period-accurate romance…”

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I’ll be looking out for more of C.C. Wiley’s work in future. 5 stars.

“Fun, arresting and action-packed, Wiley’s first Knights of the Swan book will put readers in the center of action. The love scenes are hot and tender, the characters are well defined and the protagonists’ rocky road to romance is entertaining.”

With the Thanksgiving holiday quickly approaching, I wanted to take a moment and thank all of you, my readers, for your continued support.

When I first started The Knights of the Swan series, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. I had just made the daunting yet rewarding transition from romance reader to romance writer and was spending hours each day both researching medieval history and learning everything I could about storytelling. All of that hard work still continues to this day, but pursuing a career as an author has truly been the journey of a lifetime.

With the release of Knight Treasures: Knights of the Swan, Book 3 on November 28th, and Sir Nathan’s Story: Knight Furies: Knights of the Swan, Book 4 scheduled for release on July 28, 2018, there’s a lot to look forward to and I can’t wait for you to join me for the ride.

Whether you’ve just picked up a copy of Knight Treasures for the first time, or have been reading my historical fiction since Knight Secrets, thank you so much! Writing these stories is a dream come true and the first three installments are just the beginning. Here’s to an exciting future!
