What is your genre? What draws you to this genre?
My genre has always been romance suspense /intrigue.
Since I was twelve and I saw a Fabio Cover I’ve been in love with romance, but living in Detroit, I was constantly indulged with violence. Without giving up hope for a happily ever after, I was determined to find true love for two people in a difficult violent dramatic world all the while weaving some eroticism and ecstasy around their story. I’m drawn to intrigue like a moth to a flame and writing stories in this genre gives me hope that happily ever afters for everyone can come true.
