If you click on my Author Bio page at the top of the screen, you’ll find I’ve taken the old one out and replaced it with this post. The original bio was written by a woman fed to rules until her stomach was ready to burst. A woman who was taught she should jump through hoops to impress all the right people.
That woman no longer exists. You see, she woke up one morning and realized butt-kissing left a sour taste in her mouth, so she spat out the taste, and vomited up the expectations, and started following her own path.
I don’t write formula romance.
I never have. Well, I tried once, but that particular novel took a wild turn fifty pages in, which only served to prove I’m miserable writing by formulas. The traditional romance market, however, really likes the tried and true plots. The kind that give readers a nice gooey feeling inside.
I don’t write erotica, but I have come to terms with human needs and emotions and my characters have them. Yes, even my heroines. And sometimes these needs cause them to make wrong choices. (Sorry, lovers of super-sweet Inspirational novels. I’m not putting those types of books down. I’m just saying writing them is not for me.)
I’m not sure I should list my debut novel, Dawning, as an Inspirational. It believe it would be better served as a Historical Romance. In the author’s note I will warn the reader it has a soft Christian theme. My second novel, which I hope to release by January, is a Paranormal Romance. Yes, you heard me right. I like werewolves. (Might as well come clean now!) I’ve always wanted to write a series about a female werewolf—a determined huntress and protector of human life—whose greatest desire is to know what unconditional love is. And she makes a big mess of things in her attempt to find out.
Proud to be indie!
