On tour with Prism Book Tours.
They were so in love on their wedding day the world seemed to stop just for them. Then they grew apart. So far apart they’re going through the world’s friendliest divorce. Is this really their happy ending?
The one thing that’s a constant in my writing is the emotional angst. I don’t set out to put it there. To the contrary, there are times when I set out to write an easy romp. Something light that just feels good. It never happens. I open the door to my mind and stuff pours out. Of its own accord. This malady makes it a little difficult for me to fit in.
Most people don’t want to be doused with intensity as they go about the business of living their daily lives. The cashier at JoAnn’s Fabrics really doesn’t need to carry the weight of my perceptions about everyone I’ve been watching while waiting in line – the one who’s angry and impatient and all about her; the one who’s worried about something; the one who’s kind and happy and willing to be patient because it makes her happy to help the situation…(well maybe that one the cashier would like to hear about).
I learned quite young – grade school is my first conscious recollection – to live my life mostly in my own little world. And then I found Harlequin Books. Heaven. A place where my emotions and perceptions, as well as the stories they tell, were welcome. Needed. Expected. Wanted. Honored. These books became my home. The venue through which I was understood. The place where I could contribute good to the world.
And now Harlequin has given me even more. Harlequin Heartwarming is about the ‘heart’ of it all. These books are not ‘sweet’ books – they’re books that look at life through the emotions we feel. They get to the heart of the matter. They’re ‘clean’ books – no sex on the page – not because the characters are lacking in that area, but because the focus of these books is all on the emotions. Not the body parts. I firmly believe that body parts are a valid, and valued part of life. I’m still writing them in my Superromances and MIRA suspense titles where they fulfill the story. And I’m thrilled to be spending time in this new Heartwarming world as well. Where my heart can spill forth freely! I hope you find the result a blessing in your life.
