The Writing Life



I love what I do. I love writing stories about wonderfully flawed characters who find love after much anxiety and problems. For some reason, some people look down on romance writers. And those of us who write erotic romance are considered even worse.


Why?


I write my books the same way every other author does. I sit at a computer for hours on end, pounding out a story, revising and refining until I get something I'm happy with. It's hard work even if it is a lot of fun.


I make no apology for what I do for a living. I love writing and will never stop. My writing will change and evolve over the years...that's inevitable. But I'll always be a romance writing. I love a happy ending. And, unlike many people in the world, I'm lucky enough to get to do something that makes me happy for a living.


Life is good.


Now, I'm off to actually do some work. Here the clicking of keys...that's me. :)

I have no idea why people look down on romance writers. I don't let it bother me either. I'm happy and that's all that matters.
