Everyone saw this one coming, and the show … Read More My Wishlist for GOT Happily Ever Afters

You Might Be a Romance Writer If…

I’ve been writing all my life. I think just about every writer/author will tell you that. We write long before we are published. The publication part just lets the rest of the world know that we are writers. I’ve been a romance writer for most of that time. Actually I’ve been a romance reader ALL of that time, and the writing followed naturally. So…after … Read More You Might Be a Romance Writer If…

14 Signs of Great Romance

As a romance author, the entire point of my books is to create a romance between two (fictional) people which ends happily ever after. But what does a great romance look like? Romance and all things romantic can be different for different people. Some think of romance as gifts and dinners. Some think of it as supporting each other through the daily grind. There’s … Read More 14 Signs of Great Romance

Halloween Monsters: Zombies

Okay, so technically mummies are more traditional as Halloween monsters than zombies. BUTthe new season of The Walking Dead starts today, so my next Halloween monster is zombies. 🙂 Unlike with many of the Halloween creatures Ive been looking at, where various cultures across the world have some form dating back to antiquity , zombies seem to be a newer concept with roots in various … Read More Halloween Monsters: Zombies

Halloween Monsters: Frankenstein’s Monster

Frakenstein’s monster. Of all the Halloween-related monsters, this one is perhaps my favorite. Sounds crazy, right? Vampires, werewolves, ghosts, and now even zombies have become sexy. Though how you make rotting flesh and eating brains sexy is a question for another day. These days monsters are written into paranormal romance novels and movies as the romantic heroes. But not Frankenstein’s monster. Poor guy. And I … Read More Halloween Monsters: Frankenstein’s Monster
