I grew up on Danielle Steel novels; my mother always read them. Then, when I became an adult, I began watching the movies her books were based on. These inspired me to begin writing. Actually, I've been writing since a small child, but not seriously until a few years ago.
As a child, I won numerous awards for my writing and art. As an adult, I hope to become an established author in the genre of Romance.
I was never interested in writing paranormal. I thought Stephanie Meyer's books sounded somewhat lame. But for some reason, during the summer I abruptly decided to try to write paranormal myself... Maybe because I have such fun in writing plots wrapped around male villains; and what better villain than a vampire??
After I began writing Crimson Rose, I found out that I loved writing paranormal; and contrary to my earlier belief, novels about vampires are not lame. :D
My first two novels, Southern Bloodlines and Hushed Whispers, are contemporary romances. I believe that Southern Bloodlines comes the closest to Danielle Steel's work, although I also believe that it is unique in its own right.
Currently I am working on a new WIP, entitled: The Resurrection, another paranormal romance novel. Additionally, I have finished a short story for Eirelander Press Heat Line, called Exotic. Exotic will be available in electronic format in June 2010. Another short story, entitled Werewolf's Redemption, has been submitted to MainstreamErotica.com as a writing contest entry. Moreover, I am also still working on the sequel to Crimson Rose, entitled Blood Legacy. I am broadening my publishing credits in order to attain a more mainstream publisher in the near future. :)
