Born in Philadelphia, Courtney J. Hall’s writing career began when she figured out how much fun it was to make words rhyme. She has since gone on to publish embarrassingly bad poetry, melodramatic short stories and has written beginnings to at least a half-dozen novels.
Courtney lives with her husband in suburban Philadelphia. She’s an unapologetic Anglophile, tea drinker, voracious reader, history geek, and cat thief. Her first novel, Some Rise by Sin, takes place in 1558 at the tumultuous end of Mary Tudor’s reign and was published in March 2015. Her second novel, A Holiday Wish, is the first in the Silver Bells series of contemporary holiday romances and was published in November 2016. It was followed in February 2018 by A Valentine’s Date: Scavenger Hunt, a short installment in the Silver Bells series.
