Smashwords Interview

What is it about the romance genre that appeals to you?
I love the emotion. I love sharing in the characters’ journey to find love. And I love the happy ending.
What made you decide to write erotic romance?
When I first started writing, I tried a lot of different genres, including sci fi and fantasy. I quickly found that romance is what I enjoyed writing most. Since intimacy is a major part of a romantic relationship, love scenes were a big part of the stories I wrote, and I found I really enjoyed writing them. The characters are so open and vulnerable during those intimate encounters.

At that time, I was trying to write category romance and I found that even though I was targeting the spiciest lines, I had to hold back. When erotic romances started becoming popular, it seemed a natural direction for me to go.

I’ve always been one who likes to push boundaries and I like the fact that writing erotic romance allows me to do that. I especially like having my characters break through the need for other people’s approval on their journey to find happiness.
