Sabine Starr | What Are Your Favorite Places And How Do They Affect You?

Some places are romantic, such as dinner for two by candlelight. A trip to the beach, mountains or river is adventurous. Museums, art galleries and music events induce a sense of wonder. A good book with a cup of tea on the patio invites relaxation. I’m always influenced by my surroundings, so I include that […]

Susan Meier | Her Summer With The Marine

I remember the day I came up with the idea for HER SUMMER WITH THE MARINE. I was on the phone with my friend Paula, talking about how every book idea had been done to death. And having written over 50 books (at the time), a lot of those done-to-death stories had been done to […]

Lisa Kessler | The Wounded Hero

Hi everyone – I’m so excited to be visiting the Fresh Fiction blog again! I’ve missed all of you! My new release, NIGHT ANGEL, is a standalone novella in my Night Series. This book takes place in Ireland and features Colin, who you met in NIGHT DEMON. At the end of NIGHT DEMON, Colin is […]

Sabrina Sims McAfee | Interview with Sergeant, Ginger McCormick

Hi. My name is Ginger. If you have a little time, I’d like to tell you a little about myself. Okay, so I’ve already said my name is Ginger, but my close friends and cop buddies call me Storm. My ex-partner, Homicide Detective, Skitch, gave me the nickname Storm after I caught a ruthless killer […]

Callie Hutton | What Makes A Hero?

Driving to the supermarket the other day, the song “I Need a Hero,” from the movie Shrek played on the radio. As I sang along—hoping no one could hear me—it got me thinking about what actually makes a hero? Those of us who write romance can spout off hero qualities at the drop of a […]

Cara C Putman | The Perfect Way to Read a Novel

Some would argue that there is no wrong way to read a book. With one glance at my towering stack of TBR novels, you might argue I’m the wrong person to write about the perfect way to read a book because obviously I collect them rather than actually read them. One look at our overloaded […]

Melody Carlson | The Ups and Downs of Small Towns

Sometimes I’m asked why so many of my books are set in small towns. Well, the answer is simple—it’s because I live in small towns. My husband and I divide our time between a very small “mountain” town (population less than 3,000) and a slightly larger (but still quite small) “beachy” town. Yeah, I know […]

Jane Ashford | A Black Sheep

People sometimes ask me – who’s that black sheep with you in your author photo? He’s a little guy I watched being born during one of Heifer International’s Women’s Lambing Programs at Overlook Farm in Rutland, Massachusetts. I’ve attended several of these wonderful sessions, with sheep and goats. It had to be the black sheep […]

Elizabeth Michels | Eating Through Fiction

I’m starving! This was the primary thought on my mind while I was writing my new release, DESPERATELY SEEKING SUZANNA. I was mid-diet when I started writing this story, running on the treadmill every day, surviving on nuts and berries in an attempt to fit into a slinky dress for an event. So, is it […]

Elia Winters | Erotic Romance: Reading And Writing Without Guilt

Like many writers, I’ve always been a reader. There’s a special place in my heart for literature, whether classic or modern: Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, George Orwell, Margaret Atwood, Barbara Kingsolver, the list goes on. I’m pursuing a Master’s degree in Literature; I teach high school English; I’ve loaded my ereader with every classic available […]
