Over the years, I’ve published many different kinds of romances. From Historical Romance to Contemporary, from Romantic Suspense to Paranormal Romance. Currently I write for both Harlequin Romantic Suspense and Harlequin Nocturne. The Nocturnes are, as you know, paranormal romances. I have a lot of fun writing them.
Originally I started out with a single idea — a female werewolf. She was a kick-ass, sexy lady and when my agent pitched the book to Leslie Wainger at what was then Silhouette Intimate Moments, she bought it. Writing that story was a blast! That book, One Eye Open, became the basis for what is now my popular Pack series with Harlequin Nocturne.
I love writing these books because I can create new species. So far I’ve written books with Vampires and of course the ever-present Shape-shifters, but I’ve also added a couple of new twists — children born to vampires and shape-shifters (The Lone Wolf) and now The Tearlachs, a special brand of Pack. My January Nocturne Wolf Whisperer features two Shape-shifters, one of whom is a Tearlach, and a special twist on their path to love. In the end, that’s all that matters after all. Love.
I don’t know about you, but I write and read Paranormal books to escape from the real world. What is more fun that imagining what it must be like to be able to become a wolf, to change into another species and run wild throughout the woods?
Why do you like to read Paranormal Romance? And what species do you most identify with? Would you rather be courted by a 700 year old vampire or a wild and sexy werewolf?
