Long before I wrote romance or even read romance, I watched romance. This early
introduction was courtesy of my mother. She loved Jane Austen like a
mosquito loves blood. Okay, not the best simile, but you get my point. She
watched Pride and Prejudice on the regular, the original BBC unabridged
version starring Colin Firth. Remember the part when Colin, i.e. Mr. Darcy,
plunges into the lake and walks back to Pemberly, wet shirt clinging to his
body? Sigh. That was it. I was a goner.
Soon enough, I was pilfering my mother’s historical romance novels seeking that
same little thrill. Eventually historical romance evolved to science fiction
romance, to contemporary romance to paranormal romance. Really whatever I could
get my greedy little hands on. My voracious appetite for reading romance lead me
to writing it. I don’t believe there can be too much romance in the world. Love
is so inspirational. Why not try to create it myself? Being a romance writer is
the best job in the world. And I have Jane Austen to thanks for that.
