Romance is the genre that inspired me to write as a kid. It felt more welcoming and attainable, since I viewed it in an escapist light. I realized I didn’t have to take myself or my writing so seriously, but rather just try to write something fun, interesting and well-written. Another beauty of romance, no pun intended, is how central love is in our lives. Everyone wants to love and be loved in some sense (even if just between them and their pet); it’s a universal desire. 

Something that appeals to me, personally, and that I find exciting in our romance stories are the fresh and nuanced perspectives, revitalizing love and lust, detailed imagery, and lovable characters. All of which maintains the readers’ interest from beginning to happily ever after, and even leaves us wanting more.
