In my world, pixies, witches, aliens and ghosts are all friends. Let my imagination take you somewhere amazing!

TBH – I do not write porn

The romance genre spans such a vast eternity, one can easily get wrapped up in stereotyping. I have no issue with those who write erotic romance, in fact I commend them for it. My face reddens just thinking about it. Personally, I can’t put my readers right in the bed with my muses during their most intimate moments. Just as my bedroom remains my business, so shall my characters’.

A romance novel can be anything from the development of a heartfelt bond, an everlasting relationship right down to hard core, full blown, detailed sex. Whatever you fancy. I prefer to delve into the deepest emotions of my characters and build an unbreakable bond between them, leaving their private moments completely private. As a new, emerging author, I am finding myself almost embarrassed by being connected to the romance genre. Why? Because it seems the minute you say your novel is listed under romance, eyes glaze over or squeamishly drop to the ground as people search to switch the topic. I can specify “sweet” romance, but that is not commonly understood.

Truth be told, I used to follow those same stereotypes. All romance novels were racy, steamy and of no interest. I know now, how wrong I have been. I have so much reading to get caught up on! 🙂
