I have long been attracted to romance novels, primarily for their woman-centered stories. Romances are easy-reading books, designed to leave the reader satisfied. And this, as well, is part of my attraction with the genre.
I have written most of my life: diaries, journals, poetry, and, more recently, romance novels. Looking back on this compilation, I can see that the elements of romance have been present in all of the forms.
In my novels the heroines are contemporary women, strong and independent. They seem well able to hold their own against almost anything life brings. And yet their quirks and vulnerabilities make them easy to relate to. While the hero completes the heroine, he is not the sole driving force for her happiness.
Writing romances gives me the opportunity to create stories where the man and woman always get their relationship right in the end, and where the reader can celebrate the power of love. These life affirming stories can be told in many forms because no two couples are the same, and because how these couples interact, support and sustain each other seems to vary endlessly.
I hope you enjoy reading my novels as much as I enjoy writing them.
