I find kiss scenes more challenging to write than sex. BUT, even more than steamy scenes, I love build-up and playful banter. In addition to paranormal YA and historical romance, I write erotica under a nom de plume.
Real Life Romance
I met my husband, the love of my life, Sébastien, in France while I was a teaching assistant during the 1999-2000 school year (and returned home a married woman). Some people bring back a shot glass – I brought home a husband.
Not till age 21. No wonder I get anxious writing them.
Seven Times a Charm
I wrote six “practice” novels before I felt ready to go live with my first eBook, this month, Entangled. It is the full novel version of Spellbound and will be followed up with two sequels.
Off the charts! I once gained 50 lbs in 3 months because I couldn’t stop baking (and eating) chocolate chip cookies. My favorite cookbook at the moment is “Health by Chocolate” by Victoria Laine. Now I can have my chocolate and eat it too!
Two months after dying, Graylee Perez wakes up in her identical twin sister, Charlene’s body. As the daughter of a witch, can anyone blame her mother for attempting to bring her back to life? Only now Gray’s stuck sharing her sister’s body 50/50 in 24 hour shifts.
The race is on for Gray to find a way back inside her body before Charlene purges her from existence. Warlock Raj McKenna is rumored to meddle in the black arts, not to mention he’s after Gray’s invisibility spell and worse – her heart. But Raj might be the only one powerful enough to save Gray from fading away forever.
