Deborah Court

Biography

I am an author, translator and passionate book lover. I write romance, fantasy, paranormals and mystery.

When does an avid reader become a writer?

I love books. I always did, since I was old enough to learn to read, and my passion for stories – funny or tragic, dark or phantastic, sad or amusing – has grown ever since. My love for romances started back in my early teens when I first read a Kathleen E. Woodiwiss „The Flame and the Flower“. I got hooked, and over the next years I devoured every historical romance I could get my hands on – until today, my all-time favourite is Jude Deveraux' „A Knight in Shining Armor“. Jane Austen, the Victorian gothic classics and graphic novels like „Elfquest“ influenced me, too, but I also like fantasy, mystery, thrillers, historicals and poetry.

With time, I started to think about the books I had read, starting to write alternate endings or additional scenes. The step to write my own story wasn't too far from there.

I always wanted to write myself. Over the years, I have written many short stories, fan fiction (Star Trek, Lord of the Rings, Hellboy and others) and articles for magazines. But the wish to write my own romance was always there, in the back of my head.

At age 20, while still at college, I was lucky enough to get a job as a translator of romance books, mostly historicals. Translating made me learn a lot about the structure of a book, about good and bad writing and what the reader looks for in a good story.

With the rise of paranormal romances following Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series, I finally encountered a genre that had everything I ever wanted in a story: Romance, supernatural and fantasy elements, and more passionate love scenes than in your usual romance. „Bound to the Prince“ began as a small story about an elven warrior who has been living in exile for many years, hidden in underground caves beneath the world of humans. Never in my wildest dreams had I imagined it to grow into a full-length romance, but here it is, and I hope you enjoy reading as much as I loved writing it.
