Darlene Gardner left her life as a newspaper sportswriter behind for love and romance. She's the author of more than 35 books, from single-title romantic comedies to emotionally charged family dramas. She's also written a paranormal mystery serial called Dead Ringers for young adults on up.
Do you have a split personality?
Yes! But only when it comes to writing. It’s all about the story. Whatever that story may be.
You’re mostly a romance writer, right?
Right. Most of my books are romances best suited for an adult audience, running the gamut from romantic comedies to romantic mysteries to traditional contemporary romances.
