Narelle Atkins, a fun loving Aussie girl at heart, was born and raised on the beautiful northern beaches in Sydney, Australia. She has settled in Canberra with her husband and children. A lifelong romance reader, she found the perfect genre to write when she discovered inspirational romance.
Writing became a lower priority when her children were young. But her desire to write didn't diminish and she started writing again during her precious few hours of 'kid-free' time. A regular at her local gym, Narelle discovered the benefits of exercising to enhance her creativity. She is a busy mum with a part-time supervisor role in retail. She is also a co-founder of the 30 Minute Bible Studies website and Australian Christian Readers Blog Alliance (ACRBA).
In 2011 she served as Co-President of the Faith, Hope and Love Inspirational Chapter of Romance Writers of America (FHL) and served as Vice President of FHL from 2008-10. She is also a member of American Christian Fiction Writers, Romance Writers of Australia and Omega Writers Inc.
Narelle’s contemporary stories of faith and romance are set in Australia and she is thrilled to have the opportunity to write for Heartsong Presents.
Her debut book, Falling for the Farmer, was a February 2014 release from Love Inspired Heartsong Presents, followed by The Nurse's Perfect Match in May 2014, The Doctor's Return in August 2014, and Her Tycoon Hero in November 2014. She is represented by Steve Laube from The Steve Laube Agency.
