Her first love has always been romance, whether on this world or the next. Hot, sizzling relationships with a dash of comedy and a few trials and tribulations thrown in to test her characters.
The Kama Sutra. Hey, I write sex. A girl has to educate herself, doesn't she? One of the hardest things as a writer of sexy novels is to make certain each sex scene is different and that they don't all become generic. What better way to do it than through education? Well, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
When I wrote my first full-length story, my heroine was such a wimp. Totally helpless and unable to make a decision unless guided by the male of the moment. UGH!!
Thankfully, that story was never published. It’s the one that is languishing in a dusty box in the back of the garage. One day I might take it out and re-use the story idea, which I still love even today. But I’d make darn certain that my heroine had a spine and had learned to stand up for herself. I guess I was channeling myself when I fashioned my heroine and yes, Iwas a bit of a wimp way back when. Since then, I’ve learned to stand on my own two feet and make my own decisions and my heroines reflect that.
