The theme of this hop is How did you fall into romance?

True confession time here - I never read romance novels! Not when I was young, not when I was a so-called adult. In fact, not at any time during the 20th century did I read the romance genre.


For years and years, my personal reading time was filled with science fiction, mythology, fantasy, and horror. Then right around 2001, I spied a novella by Christine Feehan, titled Dark Dream. "Aha! A vampire story!" I thought to myself, and picked it up.

It was SO much more than that, as fans of Feehan's legendary Carpathians well know. I was amazed and fascinated. I'd never read anything where the MONSTER was the hero! And not only the hero but the LOVE INTEREST! Plus he earned a HAPPY ENDING to boot! Paranormal Romance was more than a new genre for me, it was a whole new world...

After devouring all the Feehan books I could find, I branched out to Sherrilyn Kenyon, Kresley Cole, Gena Showalter, Karen Marie Moning, Larissa Ione, Karen Chance, and oh-so-many-more. It was no surprise when I eventually began writing PNR myself. Later I embraced Urban Fantasy with both arms, and my stories today tend to be a hybrid of both, paranormal fantasy! But there is always, always, always a romance running through the novels I write, and a "happily ever after" --- although the couple may have to struggle to get there (hey, you don't want it to be easy, do you?).

So how did YOU begin reading romance, or better yet, paranormal romance? I hope you'll leave me a comment--I love reading them! And don't forget to enter the rafflecopter below for a chance at my giveaway!

I started my fiction writing career with a wolf-shapeshifter series, CHANGELING MOON (2012 RITA finalist), CHANGELING DREAM, and CHANGELING DAWN. A darker werewolf tale bordering on urban fantasy followed: FIRST BITE.

More recently I've been bringing ancient faery legends into modern-day America with The Grim Series (STORM WARRIOR, STORM BOUND, STORM WARNED, and in 2017, STORM CROSSED)
