D. Alyce Domain

Biography

D. Alyce Domain. Is a long-time lover of creative fiction. She learned to read with Dr. Seuss, grew up reading Sweet Valley High, James Howe, and Lois Duncan, and graduated to category romance with Harlequin and Silhouette in her teen years. Ms. Domain started out writing fan-fiction after her favorite fictional characters met with death and cancellation on network television. Inspired by the entertaining, multi-layered storylines created by so many female romance, young adult and television writers, she began to experiment with her own characters. Coupled with her own unique brand of genre-bending romantic fiction, Ms. Domain was able to create a whole new world within the pages of her books.

Ms. Domain was born and raised in Houston, Texas, the youngest daughter of Charles and Eunice Domain. She has one older sister. She earned a BS in Biochemistry and a MS in Biomedical Sciences. She worked in Patient-Based Biological Research before switching careers and opening her own fashion boutique, The Aesthetic Domain. In addition to fashion apparel and accessories, she sells her own original jewelry creations and runs the Boutique & Blog website, which is based in Houston, Texas. Ms. Domain also has avid interests in inspirational music, art/entertainment, and history.

Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes...It was fan-fiction...and probably terrible! I think I still have a copy of it burned on a disc somewhere. Back then, I was in college and still hooked on soap operas. I knew nothing about point of view and passive voice...and the characters were already created so I didn't have to bother with building their personalities or layering an interesting conflict. Whenever a couple or character I liked would leave the show or meet an end that I felt was unsatisfactory, I would write my own version of their story...and end it how I wanted. It was great fun, to be sure, but awful writing.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I workout 4 to 5 times a week (stress relief & exercise all in one). I own and operate a ladies boutique, The Aesthetic Domain located in Houston, Texas. I work on two simultaneous Blogs, A Writer's Journal which catalogs my experiences as an aspiring writer and my Boutique & Blog site which provides colorful insight on my experience as a Boutique owner as well as gives helpful tips, advise, instructions on developing a unique style and staying stylish for life.

Smashwords book reviews by D. Alyce Domain

  • Surrender of Trust on June 23, 2016

    My Impressions: Lucy’s got a bit of sass that I love in a historical heroine…And Chalifour is the master of the double entendre…*eye brow arch*. His innuendos were very well-timed and amusing. Thus, I immediately liked the pairing. The Romance: There is a nice development to the initial spark of chemistry between the central couple. They have things in common which make their connection logical and believable. And their first kiss was smoking…so yeah, the romance definitely works. Minor Beefs: Again, the pacing is a little slow…(the sequel, which I quite enjoyed was paced steady, but a bit slow as well.) Sigh, I suppose nothing is ever perfect. I enjoyed the romance greatly. I could have done with a bit more description of the hanky panky scenes…eh, am I being a trollop? (Generally, I don’t like raunchy scenes, but some PG-13 nooky is always a plus. I’m just saying.) However, I can understand the author wanting to keep it clean and wholesome. The time period the story takes place in doesn’t particularly support a gratuitous love scene…and likely it would have been off to include one. Still, in a perfect world…and all that jazz. Random Thoughts: Eh, Lucy’s lady’s maid, Milli, is a bit cheeky, if you ask me. In fact, all the servants had a bit of shade to them. I sometimes wonder what goes on in the minds of the servants in historical romances…seriously, what they must think of their employers…the mind boggles. Extra Touch: Once again, the settings and time period are lushly described with the most intriguing details. Reading this book, I felt as though I were stepping back into the past for a brief sojourn. And I really like that the heroine had a profession of sorts…The entire horse/breeding business, racing and the partnership deal was such a nice change from some of the other historicals I’ve read where the lady’s main lot in life is social outings and husband hunting. I much prefer the ones where the heroine has something interesting to do besides pine for the hero. The scheming miss Lucy was quite a delight. Cliffhanger: None. There is already a Book 2, but its not a continuation. Everything was tied up in a nice bow here. A new story is told in the next book (with a few of the same characters). The Verdict: Great read! I think I liked this one even better than the sequel (though I did enjoy Book 2). I would definitely recommend it to lovers of romance, particularly historical romance.
