All of us love books...
At one time or another in our lives, we all find enjoyment in books, whether they be books of poetry, fiction, or non-fiction. I love to read, as well as write, and my favorite books are romance novels. When I was young, I loved to read books about horses. I was a total horse freakazoid. When I grew older, I loved books about people and feelings. I read Tolstoy's works in the 6th grade. I read T E Lawrence's Seven Pillars of Wisdom. I read Lew Wallace's Ben Hur. I read everything I could get my hands on. I devoured the OZ books by L Frank Baum. I spent hours in my tiny local library (upstairs above the Fire Dept) and in my school library.
As I matured, and raised a family, I found that Romance books gave me enjoyment. I was able to believe that men and women found special loves, and lived special lives. It was a revelation of sorts, and I was hooked.
Now I write books, and that gives me great pleasure. It is marvelous to know that other women read my books and perhaps find enjoyment in the scenarios and plots I write. That other women get the shivers when they read a sexy passage in one of my books, and go back to read it again and again.
So my Christmas gift to the world is my body of works as a romance author. It is a part of me that I share daily with thousands of other women around the world. And I hope they enjoy my books as much as I enjoyed writing them.
