Lainee Cole’s love affair with books began when she was young. By the time she was in seventh grade, Lainee was making up her own stories and poems, exploring various styles of writing. Reading voraciously and exploring different types of writing led her to romances. She loves the challenge of writing romance, developing characters and figuring out what makes them tick. They often take on a life of their own, surprising and annoying her. But they also give her hope and inspire her to follow her dreams. Lainee strives to write stories that will make readers laugh and cry, give them hope, and encourage them to believe in the power of love.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Captured by Christmas, A Christmas Anthology was inspired by a desire to give readers a take on Christmas from a paranormal author, Lynn Crandall, and a contemporary author, me. My story in the anthology, The Mistletoe Effect, is a sweet romance introducing a couple of the characters from a full-length romance I'm currently writing.
When did you first start writing?
I started writing stories in grade school, mostly about horses because I wanted a horse more than anything! In junior high, I progressed to writing poetry. It wasn't long before my friends were passing around hand-written copies of my poems, and a few were even published in poetry anthologies. About that time, I started reading romances and was hooked. Being a romance author has been one of my life goals ever since!
