1. Have you always written Romance?
No. I tried my hand at writing mysteries and ghost stories. My first publications are in poetry magazines, as well as historical fiction stories in magazines.
2. How do you deal with critiques of the romance genre?
I generally ignore it. Why should I acknowledge those who already have set opinions? My explanations of how the romance genre involves love and raw emotions have fallen on too many deaf ears. I waste my breath. What I will continue to do I’d write in the genre that gives me happiness and spin stories for the readers who love them.
3. What’s the one thing about your genre you’d like people to know?
Regency romances are so difficult to write! Details need precision. I need to double and triple check my facts, find two or more sources to corroborate a particular piece of research, and add the research into my writing! It isn’t easy, but anything worthwhile always has it’s difficulties.
