A Second Chance at Love »

I recently watched the movie Letters to Juliet. From those of you that haven’t seen it, here is the movie trailer and blurb from the official website: In Verona, Italy – the beautiful city where Romeo first met Juliet – there is a place where the heartbroken leave notes asking Juliet for her help. It’s [...]

Little Things »

Let me not to the marriage of true minds Admit impediments. Love is not love Which alters when it alteration finds, Or bends with the remover to remove: O, no! it is an ever-fixed mark, That looks on tempests and is never shaken; It is the star to every wandering bark, Whose worth’s unknown, although [...]

Back to the Beginning . . . »

  I cut my proverbial romantic teeth on Maureen Daly’s Seventeenth Summer and Victoria Holt’s The Shivering Sands (among others) and any Harlequin Presents I could get my hands on, but when I was in college and my mother decided I was old enough for the “steam,” she handed me The Flame and the Flower.  I’ve [...]

Review: Julia Templeton’s SINJIN »

When Julia Templeton named her hero Sinjin, she chose the perfect name for him.  He is absolutely sinful!  And when Kensington put a warning on the book that it is REALLY HOT!  They weren’t kidding! The story begins with Sinjin and his brother’s Victor and Rory frolicking around a London whorehouse!  Unfortunately, Mother has discovered [...]

Moving In »

It’s here! It’s here! My first book is published! Check it out. Diane, an old friend of Suzie’s, falls in love with the worst possible man, to her way of thinking. Responsible and respectable guys?

Paula Deen Has The Right Idea! »

I’m in the middle of writing my novel, DEATH’S ANGEL.  For the most part, the story takes place in Savannah, Georgia.  Having visited there a few years ago, I recall a lot about the glorious place…but not the little things that make the city so spectacular.  So, of course I’ve been researching like crazy, trying [...]

Brain Storming; the Results »

On April 7th we started a brains storming session centered on a battered table. Actually, this battered table: The challenge was to come up with a story based on this table, preferably a Romance. Several great suggestions were offered. Some of my favorites include: I’m currently sitting at an old 1950s Dutch desk that literally [...]

Brain Storming »

Madison’s post yesterday got me thinking about what you really need in order to write. It seems to me you can start with the least thing and end up with a book. Seriously, you could start with something as trivial as a single item, a noun, and make something of it. How? Through brain storming. [...]

In the Mood »

What are you in the mood to read right now? I tend to read all kinds of books.  I’ll go from a paranormal romance to science fiction to romantic suspense to fantasy, all on a whim.  Lately I haven’t been able to find exactly what I’m in the mood for. This happens now and then.  [...]

What is Romance? »

For us romance writers ‘Romance’ is an integral part of our work. But what does it really mean to each of us? How do we define what’s romantic? Here is what the Roundtablers had to say: Terri: What do I find romantic?  Attraction.  It’s an unseen untouchable chemical, a nuclear detonator waiting to go off [...]
