When I first delved deeply into the great world of books, I was a teen on the verge of womanhood and had just discovered the old bodice rippers of the 80’s. Don’t get me wrong. I always had of love of reading, however, these romances took me to a place I’d never emotionally been before and it left a lasting Impression.
Maybe that’s why I still love Historical romance so much. This genre affected me in a way that I truly lost myself in the stories. So much so I actually cried alongside the heroine, feeling every ounce of her pain. Or rooted for the hero with such heartfelt devotion that I wasn’t able to sleep or put the book down.
I still harbor resentment towards Jude Deveraux’s clan of Montgomery men and the trauma they put their ladies through. Yet, three decades later, I remember every detail about these characters, both good and bad.
Perhaps this is what rooted my desire to be an author. To evoke that kind of emotion is an incredible accomplishment and my ultimate goal. I want my readers to laugh, cry, and hopefully even throw my book across the room in an uncontrollable fit of anger.

The best advice I ever received was to write what you know. That being said, do your research. Trust me, the extra effort will pay off. Inconsistent facts not only jade a promising story, they will turn a reader off.
