I’ve always written things down, kept journals, made random notes about anything that came to mind. The main reason was because my mind wouldn’t stop. The wheels always turned and new ideas emerged. I really didn’t understand this until I started writing with the goal to be a published author in 2008.
I told myself I wouldn’t read it. I read historical romance because it took me to another time and I love history. Paranormal was something I watched on TV. Never considered reading romance books involving vampires and other creatures of magic and the night. Yet, when the movie came out, I watched it. Damn, I got sucked in and had to read the books.
Yes, I’m talking about Twilight. I read all four books back to back within a 2 week time period.
After I finished I wanted more so I searched Amazon for vampire romances and went through them like crazy. Then I moved on to other paranormal romances. A whole new world of reading opened up and I decided to give writing them a try. So I started researching myths and legends and other paranormal things.
I wanted to write vampires, but there were so much out there with them, it was hard for me to create a fresh new world. I spent so much time working and reworking, writing and rewriting, storylines and plot ideas and nothing worked. So I moved on the witches and developed my first series The Divinities and contracted the first book in late 2011 with a release date the following July. Then I came out with my shapeshifters and released Winter Eve in December 2012.
This year I started branching out. I wrote a contemporary erotic titled Business Pleasures—now available—and a MM military romance set to release in a bundle titled Unconditional Surrender on October 13th. A week later my first new adult (NA) paranormal, Imperfect Mate, comes out as part of the Decadent Publishing ROAR line. These won’t be the only stories I do in these genres. I will be writing more of them along with my paranormals.
So what happened to my vamps? I am happy to say I have finally came up with a world that works. I have my vampires. The first book, It’s A Vampire Christmas, comes out in December.
Writing is much more than a career for me. It’s a journey that takes me to different worlds filled with magic, mystery, romance, and adventure. I’m overjoyed to be taking it with my readers.
