Fortune’s been writing stories as for as long as she can remember, even penning a murder mystery as a fourth grade project at her very Catholic elementary school. After a hiatus traveling the world on a cruise ship, road tripping to Burning Man in the early 2000s, finance managing a territory for the world’s largest soda shop, and owning both a yoga studio and school, she rediscovered her love of writing while putting together a technical manual.
Fortune, partner Sean, and daughter Matilda live together with two cats and one dog in the Bow Valley. By day she’s a stay-at-home mom, by night she writes contemporary romances, and on weekends, she moonlights as a librarian. Catch up with her on Instagram @fortunewhelan for mountain misadventures and general malarkey.
Fortune Whelan’s first Tule book will release in April 2022.
