  1)    Why Romance? Did you choose this genre or were you ‘chosen’ by it?   A little of both. I was an avid reader as a child and wanted to write my own books, but didn’t think real people grew up to be writers. So I earned a teaching degree. While teaching kindergarten. I …

1) So, last year you were spreading the word (successfully) about your indie books and building a faithful audience. Then, something amazing happened and suddenly you got an amazing agent and became a New York Times best-selling author: tell us all about it! Well, I always knew I wanted to branch into adult fiction and …

1) Why Romance? Did you choose this genre or were you ‘chosen’ by it? I was published first as a hard science fiction writer, that is a writer whose stories are based in extrapolations of known science or math. In fact, my first book, Primary Inversion, was marketed as literary SF when it came out …

1) Why Romance? Did you choose this genre or were you ‘chosen’ by it? I believe one should only write what one loves to read.  So in this sense, when I started, Romance and I were a perfect fit.  There is nothing quite as delicious and satisfying as a love story done right and I …

1) Why Romance? Did you choose this genre or were you ‘chosen’ by it? I guess it chose me! I had this story my head about a girl that needed to get away and I knew she’d meet the love of her life somewhere along on that road, so I dove right into THE EDGE …

1)Why Romance? Did you choose this genre or were you ‘chosen’ by it? I would say it chose me. It’s what I like to read, so it was a natural progression to writing in the genre. However, the first book I penned (not published) was a YA romance, so I’ve jumped around subgenres, but the …

1) Why Romance? Did you choose this genre or were you ‘chosen’ by it? I chose it.  My nature and professional experience taught me that I work better with an assignment and structure.  Genre fiction offers a basic structure—western, love story, detective, fantasy, etc.—which keeps me from wandering off into aimless and pointless yammering.  I …

1)WHY DO YOU TELL STORIES? Because there is no better way to take a break from reality than by diving into a new and different world with colourful characters spawned from my own imagination. I tell stories because the process is cathartic and the end result is something I love sharing with others, offering readers …
