Ahem. I've had a passion for writing since I was about 8 when I wrote I first short story. During my sophomore year in high school, I wrote my first full-length novel, a science fiction romance. (I should burn that, it was so bad!) I wrote my second novel, a fantasy romance, during my senior year, which, many years and at least a hundred revisions later, finally got published.
I currently have three full-length novels and two novella in publication, one fantasy, Queen in Exile and the rest Regency Romances--all on the sweeter side of the sensuality scale but far from sterile. I always strive for strong conflict, alpha males who fall hard, heroines strong enough to take them on, witty dialogue, vivid pictures of a new world, and sweeping romance that make readers laugh and sometimes cry. I'm all about the happy ending. I really looooove when readers tell me my books kept them up all night!
On the more personal side, I'm married to my very own prince charming, and we have six children (yes, that's 6) , three cats, and usually other creatures like fish, birds, or frogs as pets.A night owl by nature, I write late at night, and of necessity, in the morning before work ... or pretty much whenever I can steal away a few minutes to write. It’s really some kind of sick addition. Getting published was just a good excuse to justify it ;-)
I’m working on final edits for book three of The Rogue Hearts Series, and I'm also in the middle of a new Young Adult post-apocalyptic novel which isn't my usual thing, but hey, I had a dream. Literally. But enough about me.
What kind of books do you find hard to put down?
