Posy Roberts started reading romance when she was young, sneaking peeks at adult books long before she should’ve. Textbooks eventually replaced the novels, and for years she existed without reading for fun. When she finally picked up a romance two decades later, it was like slipping on a soft hoodie . . . that didn’t quite fit like it used to. She wanted something more.
She wanted to read about men falling in love with each other. She wanted to explore beyond the happily ever after and see characters navigate the unpredictability of life. So Posy sat down at her keyboard to write the books she wanted to read.
Her stories have been USA Today’s Happily Ever After Must-Reads and Rainbow Award finalists. When she’s not writing, she’s spending time with her family and friends and doing anything possible to get out of grocery shopping and cooking.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in the upper Midwest in the 1970s and 80s in a predominantly German/Scandinavian community. I tend to pull a lot of experiences from my childhood, including my love of nature and variable weather.
What do you read for pleasure?
I read MM Romance and news. But mostly MM Romance.
