I've always loved romance and the tension as the physical aspect of relationships eventually come together.
There is a romantic muse I fall into as a romance writer, very much like a reader who finds a book she can't put down. It's a high where I fall in love with my characters, and live vicariously through them. I feel every heartbreak, every growth moment, every kiss, and what happens when the lights go out. I take my research very seriously, and try to get the facts straight and present an exciting environment for my characters. I firmly believe readers like to learn something along the way to satisfying their hearts. I know I do.
