"Romance Writing With A Twist!"


Background Information

Being a writer means first being a reader. I got my start at the tender age of nine, devouring science fiction short stories and novels. The author who had the most influence on me was Isaac Asimov. As I grew older, I couldn't believe how versatile he was, in non-fiction subjects as well as fiction. Who but Asimov could have written scholarly books on such diverse topics as Shakespeare, the Bible, and chemistry, then switch gears to create his famous Three Laws of Robotics? His presence here on Earth will be greatly missed.

In high school I branched out to reading Regencies, having been metaphysically introduced to the great Georgette Heyer. The tone and the language of the era fascinated me: where else could you refer to a drunken man as someone who was chirping-merry, or three parts disguised, or a bit bosky, to name only a few phrases?

From there, I graduated to writing. I wanted to combine fantasy with my own particular kind of reality. Special Delivery, my fantasy novelette was born because of my preoccupation with the mail. You know, waiting for acceptance letters, contracts, checks, that sort of thing. I started to wonder what would happen if one day, the mail waited for me—or Ralph Dunmeyer, as it were. Special Delivery is the result.

LORD DARVER'S MATCH, my 5 star time-travel Regency novel with LionHearted Publishing, began one morning with me snuggling in bed next to my husband. What would happen, I theorized, if the man next to me was not my husband? This idea germinated into Hillary Logan's plight—transporting her to early nineteenth century England ... and the Marquess of Darver's bed. So you see, by combining reality with fantasy or imagination, you can conceive the most inventive plots!
